Brewforia. What canI say. It is a true beer market. Huge selection. Service is perfect. You can hear yourself. And a great value on beer. This place has the largest selection of beer to choose from. They have a couple of beers on tap to choose from, while you look around. They will even try to find beer for you that they don’t have. I’ll let everyone know about this place.
Lots of bottles, free samples of the taps before you buy one, very good food (have liked everything I’ve tried), fun/friendly staff, quart or growler filling. Rick and his staff arrange some awesome beer fests!
Ordered a shipment online from the website. Pretty good selection of mostly west coast breweries. Average set up for the website with a single column of beers in alphabetical order, and they do have a search bar. Not my favorite interface, but not difficult to find what they have.
Pretty good selection. Like I said many are western states, but some of the bigger eastern breweries as well. Also it is not necessarily California heavy, at least not California breweries with fairly limited distribution. Some good mountain and other western state breweries that aren’t readily available, at least to me such as Maui, Midnight Sun, and Squatters to name a couple. Decent selection of imports, but nothing great, although that’s not really what I would look for on an online beer store. Seem to get a pretty good selection of special releases although they obviously sell out fairly fast. Overall seems like a pretty good selection, especially if you do not live in that general distribution area.
Price seemed about average, maybe a little above what other places would offer, at least for the ones that I have seen prices for on other sites/in person stores. That said it isn’t a large difference, just don’t expect any great deals. Shipping is reasonable and what you would expect cost-wise.
Shipping was fast and everything arrived safely. Seemed well packed. Good communication and received a tracking number as soon as one was available. Definitely seemed like they knew what to do when shipping.
Overall I thought this was a nice online shop that gave me a way to get some mountain state (and Alaska and Hawaii) brews that I couldn’t normally get. Probably wouldn’t order from here on a regular basis, but if there is a special release they have enough there to make it worth it. Also take 10% on orders of 12 and 15% on orders of 24. Overall a good experience ordering from them.
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 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.
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.
