Best Local Brewpub

Payette Brewing Company

Readers' Picks

When Payette Brewing Company opened its doors in Garden City in May 2011, the Boise craft brew scene was on the brink of blowing up. And by pushing its signature beers--Payette Pale Ale, Mutton Buster Brown, Outlaw IPA--to taps and grocery shelves across town, Payette has solidified its place among the newbies and OGs as one of Boise's best local breweries. Though the brewery's tasting room doesn't serve food like most brewpubs, it does host plenty of food trucks and live bands to keep the beer-swillers full and hoppy. 111 W. 33rd St., Garden City, 208-344-0011,

Second Place: Bardenay Restaurant and Distillery,

Third Place: Sockeye Grill and Brewery,
