Best Local Brewery

Payette Brewing Co.

Readers' Picks

This is the first year that Best of Boise has included a Best Local Brewery category. We probably should have added it sooner, considering the flood of local craft beer that has flowed into the Treasure Valley in the past couple of years. According to last count, there were about a dozen breweries operating in the City of Trees and surrounds, and the beer foam seems to rise every year. Payette Brewing Co., in Garden City, was at the forefront of the recent surge in local brewing. Founded in 2010 and opened in 2011, PBC has, year-round, made us Outlaws on the North Fork, taught us how to be Mutton Busters and given us a Fly Line worthy of the mighty Payette. The message from Best of Boise voters was clear: Keep those kegs flowing.
