Nothing makes me hoppier than a nice cold IPA. Boise is home to an abundance of craft breweries who spoil us with delicious beers, including IPA's. Short for India Pale Ale, the delicious craft beer is known for it's hop forward notes and a tendency to be on the stronger side. We asked the Treasure Valley what some of their favorite IPA's were to indulge in — here are some of the favorites!
Lost Grove Brewing
Mad Swede Brewing Company
Mother Earth Brew Co.
If you are just getting into the craft beer scene, a few important things to know are terms ABV and IBU. Alcohol by Volume (ABV) is the percentage of alcohol in your beer. International bitter units are based on the amount of hops in your beer. Typically the higher the IBU, the hoppier the beer.
Growing in popularity over the last decade, the craft beer industry in Boise has boomed. In just 10 years, Idaho went from 20 craft brewers to over 80 craft breweries, talk about a state filled with beer drinkers! While the weather is seemingly cooling down, hop on over to your favorite brewery, pub, or local restaurant to enjoy a delicious IPA.
