Finally visited one of the better places in town for RBers and I was not dissapointed. 26 taps, with only a Coors Light trowning off the otherwise nice line of decent, micros. Most were fairly common but a nice selection. Specifically went ther as I got a heads up that they had just got in a Rogue Charlie 1981. Dimly lit, music was for the younger set, and a few TVs with mostly sports showing, but they were easy to ignore if you didn’t want to be bothered with that. While I did not have anything from the menu, my neighbors at the bar had very nice burgers/sandwiches that there compliments to the staff reflected positively. The bartender was sharp and attentive and left me alone otherwise. A nice experiance, will definatley go back for dinner soon.

Great tap list and food selection. The beer events that I have gone to have never been a let down. One of my top places to go in Boise.

Nice place in downtown with rotating taps and extensive bottle list. Good food too. Need to come back several times to fully explore the beer selection.

Not sure how I have never reviewed Daves place. The top beer/food place in downtown Boise for sure. He has a great tap selection with new stuff on all the time. Along with a great bottles selection. The food is really fun and very good.

Saturday night dinner. The crowd was ample and energetic. Despite reviews on Yelp and elsewhere that maligned the service, we found our server to be wickedly good and well versed in both the vast draft menu and the wine selection. He was Johnny on the spot for our party of 8 -- he was great. The beer lineup was excellent and had more than a few good local and regional selections along with a good mix of West coast labels. The food was also very, very good. Most definitely my pick for top beer destination in Boise!

Really nice place to grab a burger and beer. Great tap list that moves around alot. I love that they bring so many different beers to Boise on tap. Service is bad. No maybe just rude.

Burgers were perfect. Had a bottled De Dolle Oerbier, which was fantastic. A very decent selection of bottled imports, for Boise especially. Service was good. Will definitely go back.

Not very easy to find parking, but definitely worth the walk. A great selection of regional micros. The food is pretty good, and the service is spot on, at least when you sit at the bar. I like the chalk drawings of the beers, and some funny artwork up on the walls as well.

Right in downtown Boise, with an outside patio area and uncramped interior. 4 or 5 TVs scattered around in case sports are on. Mostly 20-30 year-old clientele when I was there. Nice tap list with a lot of IPAs and one selection on cask. I neglected to look at a bottle list. The bartenders were helpful when asked about the brews. One thing I liked was you could get 12 or 16 oz. servings. One guy on the waitstaff came by and we started talking beer, and he gave me his honest opinion on a few brews. Good burgers, too.

Nice outdoor patio along the pedestrian-friendly street. Long bar inside with great tap selection. The Deschutes Broken Top Bock was my favorite.
