In February 1996, Bittercreek Alehouse emerged from two brothers’ passion for the growing northwest craft beer scene. Our success stems from a fantastic team, including dedicated alumni and current staff, representing some of Boise’s finest.
We coined the term ‘Good Beer’ to spotlight brews we adore—beer from breweries with accessible owners and real people behind them. Unlike corporate entities, we prefer backing small independent brewers.
Good Beer embodies a sense of place, featuring rare lambics, saisons, farmhouse ales, or traditionally crafted lagers on our taps. It also reflects a brewery’s commitment to minimizing their environmental impact.
Good Beer is simply great to drink and always local, supporting our community’s independent breweries and local farmers. At Bittercreek Alehouse, our basement brewery enables us to experiment for our guests and contributes to R&D for our second brewery, Woodland Empire. Though we proudly showcase 3-5 Woodland beers, our focus remains on curating and serving ‘Good Beer’ with a world-class approach. Thank you for supporting us and all other local breweries.
