Farm to Beer

April is Idaho Craft Beer Month

The perfect time to drink local beer and also support Idaho hop farmers, barley farmers and Idaho’s craft breweries. The craft beer industry has been booming over the past few years. Idaho has over 50 breweries putting it 10th in the United States in terms of breweries per capita. Idaho breweries like Payette Brewing, Sockeye Brewing and Powderhaus Brewing use Idaho hops and malt barley.

Idaho Beer That Is Truly Farm to bottle

Did you know that Idaho is the nation’s number one producer of barley and the number two producer of hops? The Idaho microbrew industry is also achieving regional and national recognition for its quality brews crafted from locally grown barley and hops. These beers are making their way into grocery stores and restaurants across the state and beyond.

Our goal is to help consumers confidently recognize their craft beer is authentically Idaho-made, featuring exclusively top-tier barley, hops, or other ingredients cultivated within our beloved Gem State.
