The founder of Payette Brewing Company, Mike Francis, left his corporate job in Seattle to move back to his hometown of Boise to open a brewery. This microbrewery operates under a 15 barrel brewing system and has four, year-round selections in addition to rotating craft brews that change multiple times over the course of the year. Attached to the brewery is the popular tasting room, where visitors enjoy socializing and indulging in Payette’s high quality beer.
Cloud 9 is a young “nano-brewery,” which means that it’s intentionally kept small. The first of its kind in Boise, Cloud 9 has an extreme emphasis on creative brewing. The beers at Cloud 9 change as soon as the bath runs out, making for some really interesting and delicious beer creations. Come here for seasonal favorites like the Lemon Ginger Wheat beer or the Honey Basil ale. For a beer experience you’ll never forget, take a visit to Cloud 9 Brewery.
