After a recent sesh at The Front climbing gym on a Friday night, BW popped into Payette Brewing Co. post-workout and stumbled on a scene we didn't expect: a bar full of beer drinkers. Hidden just off Chinden Boulevard though it may be, Payette Brewing draws a crowd that arrives mostly via two wheels, so the gym stench isn't so noticeable if you're straight off the climbing wall. Plus, the game room--where you can challenge your drinking buddies to cornhole, table tennis or foosball--has a giant garage door that's thrown open for extra ventilation. The official beer of The Front, the unofficial brewery of foodtrucks near and far, and the newest host of alley cats in town, Payette Brewing may be cooking up beer but it's also fermenting quite the party, too.
