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.
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.
Horrible customer service. I placed an order with Brewforia on May 18th and my card was charged on the 21st with no tracking number sent to me. On the 23rd I emailed them to find out why my card was charged but I had yet to receive a tracking number and received no response. The next day I received a tracking number and all was well.
When I received the box from the looks I was scared there was going to be damage but luckily there was not. The fact nothing was broken was nothing short of a miracle. However, if the shipping practice they used for my box is the norm I guarantee there is to be issues for others. The box had about 3 feet of shipping paper folded in the bottom and then the Cans and Bottles just sitting on top of that and not wrapped. I’m truly amazed everything made it ok. Kudos to UPS I guess.
Here’s where the real fun starts I order 4 items and only received 3 of those items. There were also 3 extra cans in the box but I assumed these were clearly extra’s as this is normal for beer ship places to do. So I give them a call to inquire about my missing bottle and immediately the lady states they’ll just issue me a refund and doesn’t offer to ship me the missing bottle or anything. She says I’ll receive an email shortly from them with the details of my refund. No big deal just a little confused why they didn’t offer to ship the bottle.
Well I didn’t receive and email and see no pending payments on my account so I decided to give them a call again. This time the same lady tells me they called me on the 20th(Sunday) and spoke to me and I agreed to exchange the missing bottle for the 3 cans. Really you called me on a Sunday??? I think I would remember this conversation oh and I think I would have a record of this call in my call log too? She admittedly says "well I don’t know what to tell you the customer agreed to this." She finally agreed to issue refund again however, I’m not holding my breath.
Based on their packing practice and lack of customer service I would advise to not do business with Brewforia.
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 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.

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.
