Drinking with your dog used to be a feature of sad-bastard country songs. That was before the craft beer movement came along with its inviting taprooms and dog-friendly policies.
Make plans to hit the B'Arc n Brew Craft Beer Festival with your best furry friend and take part in southwest Idaho's biggest dog-friendly craft brew fest. There, you'll find offerings from more than a half-dozen local and regional craft breweries; vendors; a dog parade and costume contest; and music from The Oliphants, Critter Soup, Deviant Kin, Steep Creek, Andrew Sheppard Band and Like a Rocket.
For the price of admission you'll get a tasting mug and eight tickets. Proceeds benefit employment opportunities for people with disabilities at The Arc Idaho.
Eureka! Boise will feature 40 craft-beer taps, small-batch spirits (with a focus on whiskey), and a scratch-kitchen American menu with uncommon options like osso buco riblets, truffle cheese fries, fried-chicken sliders, lobster tacos and a variety of burgers.
