This brewery is blowing up, with a massive new facility in the works. The new location will be in the heart of Downtown Boise and will support up to 100,000 barrels. At the current location in Garden City, you can walk in and immediately catch a waft of fresh brewing beer from fifteen barrels — the pub is directly in front of the brewing operation. A former engineer of the Boeing Company, founder Mike Francis always makes sure to have new brew experiments on tap. In the past, he’s teamed up with Eugene, Oregon’s Ninkasi Brewing. Right now you can try the Twelve Gauge Imperial Stout, aged in bourbon barrels for 12 months to yield a touch of vanilla and oak with a hint of whiskey alongside chocolate and coffee notes.
