Beer, Glorious Beer


Tis that lovely time of the year when our thoughts here at BW start turning toward beer. Not that it’s all that unusual for us to be thinking about beer, but right now, we’re serious about it.

A small army of official Boise Weekly Coldest Beer testers is slowly making its way across the valley (or Ada County at least) dropping their respective thermometers in frosty glasses of finely poured domestic brews in the unending quest to find the coldest around. They are bravely facing bar after bar, confronting the eternal question, “How do I get your job?”

The annual Coldest Beer issue won’t hit stands until July 1, but our selfless testers are already racking up hilarious stories from their bar-hopping adventures—many of which can never be shared in public.

They’ll be out there for another few weeks, so say hi if you see one trying to covertly put a thermometer in their drink, and please be kind, they’ve been to a lot of bars.
