  • Round two of the Alefort Nail Pull, releasing pours from Sockeye Brewing, Payette Brewing Co., Grand Teton Brewing and Barbarian Brewing
  • Four "Exclusively Idaho Ales" crafted only with local ingredients
  • Panel discussion and talks from local brewers on topics like "Idaho's Beer Identity is Idaho Ingredients" and "Does Beer Independence Matter?"
  • "Foodfort Tastes" in partnership with Alefort, offering $3-$6 small plates from Saint Lawrence Gridiron, State & Lemp and more
  • Food-related talks on topics like "Digging In: Stories of Global Flavors" and "Explore the Evolution of Filipino Food"
