The seventh annual Funk Fest—a sudsy celebration of sour and wild beers at Bittercreek Alehouse—is kicking off early this year with a Sunday Fun[k]day party on July 23. The 2017 version of the always-popular festival is an eight-day marathon (July 23-30), inviting customers to quaff up to 22 different sour beers and munch on “funk-friendly food” whipped up by the executive chef of Bittercreek and Red Feather.
Since Sunday isn’t traditionally the day of choice to get sloshed, the Eighth Street alehouse is knocking a dollar off the price of each Funk Fest brew—a selection that includes puckers from Almanac, Heretic and Orval, among others—to keep customers rolling in. The more beers you try, the more Funky Beer Club stamps (and, once you hit 10, prizes) you earn. To make the deal even sweeter (or maybe we should say, “more sour”), Bittercreek staff will be roaming the taproom from 1 p.m. to 4 p.m. to offer customers tastes of rare and vintage brews from the bottle.
Sunday, 11 a.m.-midnight, FREE. Bittercreek Alehouse, 246 N. Eighth
St., Boise, 208-429-6340, bcrfl.com/bittercreek.
