First Thursday: PreFunk Beer Bar

Book, blog, beer


In our recent Beer Issue--which hit stands July 2--Boise Weekly had the fine idea to conduct Q&As with brew aficionados Stacy Connelly and Steve Koonce.

Well, PreFunk Beer Bar (1100 W. Front St.) agreed it was a good idea to pair the two together, so has invited them down for First Thursday.

Koonce's 2014 book, Idaho Beer: From Grain to Glass in the Gem State, explores the history of Idaho breweries and offers a roadmap to the future of Idaho beer. He'll be selling and signing books at 6 p.m.

Connelly is the queen of weekly newsletter about all things beer, including news and events. While she's at PreFunk, she'll sell memberships to Boise Beer Buddies, which gives beer- lovers discounts at breweries around the Treasure Valley.

The folks at PreFunk will be serving beer at Boise Art Glass next door throughout the evening, as well.
