For a state that is one of the country’s leading producers of hops and barley, only 31 beer-making businesses are scattered across Idaho, bringing the count close to its peak in 1888 (pre-prohibition) when there were 33 breweries across the territory. Today, Idaho brew masters are brewing a “boutique style” of liquid gold that is becoming quite popular with beer enthusiasts. So, grab your stein and say “Cheers” to Idaho’s brew masters at these 31 locations.
