Best Brewery Bonanza

Explosion of new craft breweries in the Treasure Valley

Staff Pick

In 2011, it was Payette Brewing Co. and Crescent Brewing. In 2012, it was Crooked Fence and Kilted Dragon. In 2013, it was Slanted Rock and 10 Barrel, with plans for Woodland Empire Ale Craft and Cloud 9 Brewery to open by year's end. And in 2014, it'll be nothing but suds: Edge Brewing Company, Bogus Brewing, Amagi Brewing, Accomplice Brewing, Blackbird Brewing Co., County Line Brewing, Haff Brewing and Simian Brewing Company all have plans to open in the Treasure Valley. We're not entirely sure what it is that is drawing so many breweries to our little city--the critical mass of beer-lovers, the quality of life, or maybe it's in the water--but we do know one thing: we are definitely not going to argue with their choice to come to Boise.
