What can I say? It has a good location, great food, actually has a cask (rarity in Idaho) and gets great beers in.

Great beer bar with a great bottle list and a unique tap list. A good chunk of the beers seemed to be Payette, so they must have had a tap takeover recently, but there was lots of other interesting stuff to be had. The food was fantastic, too, really above par. Our server was really cool, extremely helpful and courteous. In fact, everyone we dealt with was super friendly. The place was packed to the gills, and it took us awhile to get our table, but it was well worth it. It would be fun to come here with other raters and just spend a whole evening exploring the crazy tap and bottle selection.

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.
