Best Local Brewpub

Sockeye Grill and Brewery

It's no stretch to say Sockeye beer is one of Idaho's most identifiable products. After 20 years in the business, the brewery remains at the top of its game, turning out award-winning suds year after year. What to pair with the Gem State's favorite beverage? How about awesome pub food? The Sockeye Grill and Brewery has both in abundance.

2nd Place: Highlands Hollow Brew House—This North End landmark has been quenching thirst and satisfying hunger since its first incarnation, the Brass Lamp, in 1968. Nearly 50 years later, Boiseans still fill the rustic, lodge-like space at the base of the foothills to get their fix of food, craft brews and fun.

3rd Place: Cloud 9 Brewery—A relative newcomer to the brewpub scene, Cloud 9 Brewery has quickly filled its niche as Boise's first nanopub. With a slate of year round beers, seasonals, limited edition brews and craft root beers, Cloud 9 is equally committed to its menu, which includes lovingly crafted standards like burgers and sandwiches, alongside specialties like the beer-amisu dessert and a killer mac 'n' cheese.
