Boise's recent explosion of brand new craft breweries has left some of the scene's OGs struggling to retain customers. That's why TableRock Brewpub owner Chris Nelson decided to chuck his old model and start fresh, hiring a new head brewer, Kerry Caldwell, and throwing out all his old beer recipes--even fan faves like the Hopzilla and Nut Brown. "An IPA 10 years ago isn't an IPA today, and so you have to change it," Nelson told Boise Weekly. Now the suds spot offers a selection of constantly rotating taps, along with limited edition kegs of cask-conditioned and barrel-aged beers. It just goes to show: When hop-portunity knocks, you should answer. Tablerock Brewpub and Grill, 705 Fulton St., 208-342-0944, tablerockbrewpub.com.
