small strip-mall boutique-ish beer store with inflated prices, noses stuck in the air w.r.t. six-packs, and overall a fairly unimpressive selection given the chatter I’ve heard about this store. the boise co-op beats this location in every respect: price, selection, ambiance and service. maybe if I lived in the burbs where they’re located I’d be convinced it was the best place around for over-priced bottles and growlers, and would enjoy being treated like a noob by a guy who doesn’t even understand his beer styles.
Great selection of beers & glassware, and getting more in all the time. We (and everybody that entered) was welcomed with enthusiasm as soon as you walked it the door. Rick is a very nice guy and loves to talk beer! They have 2 beers on tap for growlers to-go and for drinking while your shopping, they also have seating, tables and a TV set up. It doesn’t get much better than that!
A great beer shopping experience. I’m looking forward to coming back again next time I’m in town.
Update: My first trip to the new store in Meridian. Now with more beer and seating inside & outside. They have 4 beers on tap to drink while browsing the beer selection, watching some TV or while eating. Yes, they even sell personal sized fresh pizza’s.
I wish I lived closer, but maybe it’s good I don’t!
Great time this is a great bottle shop in Boise. They had well over 500 different bottles and 4 taps going. They pride themselves in having both Western US and Pac NW beers in the same place. The service was great. I know I will be back soon.
A nice little place. Lots of nice beer, and some stuff not available anywhere else in Boise. A few samples while you browse with some tables and a TV. Rick is one hell of a guy, and a RB member, so needless to say he will hook it up. Growler fills are coming soon as well. A nice addition to the Boise scene.

A good stop for rotating taps and growler fills, food menu looked good. The bottleshop selection is pretty decent too, but I found the prices to be oddly high on a few items… on par with most or at least close. I did run into several hoppy beers that were past their prime (another reminder to me to always check date stamps). Server was pleasant and knowledgeable. I’ll come in from time to time, just for the taps. Actually I liked the layout of the original location better, even though it was temporary. Still, Rick does it right and I’m glad to have a Brewforia just down the road.
A little place in a strip mall. It has a medium number but quality and varied bottled beer selection. They also have about eight beers on tap. Most beers are from Idaho, Washington, Oregon and California with a smattering of U.K., Belgium and German beers. You can drink the beers on site or to-go in a 32 or 64 oz growler. They also have food. We had a Santa Fe cheese dip and Green Pepper Chili. Both were great. The only annoying thing was that three out of the eight beers listed on tap were not actually available. Update the tap list! It was a Wednesday early afternoon and the place had great business. I hope they do well.
This place has a decent selection and food. But if you are looking to buy bottles expect a huge mark up. So if you want a good tap selection and food I would go here, if you want bottles I would definitely shop around. They also are the ones who put on beerfest every year, and every year it keeps going up in price when selection does not seem to get too much better.
