Ale Fort Details Revealed

Posted By on Wed, Mar 21, 2012 at 3:18 PM

Ale Fort is the marriage of Boise’s budding music scene with its vibrant beer culture. It's also a way to stay tanked on craft beer for the entirety of the Treefort Music Fest for a measly $25.

As Ale Fort comes to fruition, new details are making it sound cooler than ever. It’s going to take place in an 80-foot dome with a chandelier hanging from the top. Also, there’s going to be a limited number of fine quality art prints for sale, numbered and signed by local artist Kelly Knopp and each of the brewers.

Furthermore, four local breweries are creating special Treefort-themed beers exclusively for the festival. Crooked Fence has come up with an orange wheat beer, Payette Brewing Co. is doing the No Girls Aloud Rye Pale Ale, The Ram brewed the SMASH IPA and 10 Barrel Brewing has a yet-to-be-named hoppy brown ale in the works.

After the jump, you can check out a near-complete list of all the beers that will be available in the Ale Fort.
