Need Something To Do Thursday?


If your taste buds are aching with boredom, having been subjected to the normal weekday fare of uninspired after-work meals or take-out, today will provide the perfect opportunity to jazz up your culinary landscape.

Tonight, you can give your taste buds a party with a trip to Front Door Northwest Pizza and Taphouse. The creator of various bastard ales, Stone Brewing Company, will feature a number of its beers paired with cheese and chocolate samples. Draughts from the brewery, such as its Levitation and Sublimely Self-Righteous ales and a smoked porter with chipotle, will be on special.

From 6-9 p.m., you can partake in the beer specials and chat up Stone rep. Erin Kemplin. You can also celebrate the brewery's sweet 16 with a keg of its special 16th Anniversary IPA, said to be the first such keg in Boise. According to Stone's blog, the anniversary beer is a double IPA with lemon verbena and lemon oil, as well as Amarillo and Calypso hops, which are said to mix well with the beer's peach, mango, apple and berry notes.
