Looking forward to the grand opening of Guru and Boise Fry! Um, is that a legal Idaho marriage?!?

Re: “Downtown Boise Brewpub Part of Big Beer Purchase

Thanks for the clarification Karl. I for some reason was thinking they were owned by the same group that owns a sports bar chain out of Texas. We should be releasing 5 beers next week assuming the feds have finalized our license by then.

Re: “Guru Donuts Gears Up For Grand Opening

Ajax if only the legislature would eat Guru every day they would probably be a little lighter on the conservative politics! One can dream...

@ Grind Modern Burger

Taken from the RAM's website!

"OUR HISTORY
We are all about great food, ice-cold hand-crafted beer and creating memories, and we have been for over 40 years. The first RAM opened as a “Deluxe Tavern” in Lakewood, Washington on February 26th, 1971. Today the RAM is still family owned and headquartered in Lakewood. We now operate over 30 restaurants serving guests in six states – including C.B. & Potts in Colorado and C.I. Shenanigans in Tacoma, Washington."

BTW on the 26th a bunch of us are coming down to check you out. I hope we get 6 - 10 of us, but the day before Thanksgiving you never know! Looking forward to try your beers!

Re: “Downtown Boise Brewpub Part of Big Beer Purchase

Actually 10 Barrel moved from Stein to Hayden a few months back. At this point it would be difficult for them to move back to the Bud house since Stein would have to buy out the contract so its unlikely that they will be back at Stein anytime soon.

As for breweries owned by big companies in town there's only one other one. The Ram is owned by a restaurant group out of Texas I believe but they did start here in Boise and have managed to grow and eventually merged with the other company.

Re: “Downtown Boise Brewpub Part of Big Beer Purchase

LGM1, 10 Barrel is with Stein - the SW Idaho AB distributor. They are not with Watkins outside of SW Idaho, but I'd expect that to change at the next opportunity.

Good for the owners. They worked their asses off and now they'll enjoy a nice payday for their efforts. Let the sheeple drink elsewhere.

Re: “Downtown Boise Brewpub Part of Big Beer Purchase

On a similar note, Cape Cod Potato Chips, originally a local chip producer from Hyannis, MA, was purchased by AB. AB did nothing to change the product's recipe and, upon taking a tour of the facility to watch the chip-making process, AB left the production line and supply lines in place. Gladly, Cape Cod Potato Chips is still in business, and still employs workers from Hyannis, MA and the surrounding towns.

Re: “Downtown Boise Brewpub Part of Big Beer Purchase

Ok, David, tell me which local breweries are owned by some other big company? And no one's arguing the quality of beer. You clearly aren't seeing the big picture. It's a matter of CHOSING to support a company that feeds the local economy over one that not only doesn't, but is fighting to prevent other small breweries from growing!

Re: “Downtown Boise Brewpub Part of Big Beer Purchase

To this that refuse to give 10 Barrel a chance, I hope you know how many "local" breweries are owned by larger companies.

Because many are.

So grow up and recognise that who owns the brewery doesn't dictate if it's good beer or not. That's decided by how it's brewed.

Re: “Downtown Boise Brewpub Part of Big Beer Purchase

Everything you purchase from 10 Barrel now helps fund AB-I's continued efforts to thwart the local "Micro-brewery" movement which has been taking away from what they see as "their" profits for years (ie: the reason AB's profits were in decline and had to sell out to InBev) and will not stop until everyone's drinking their multi-National mega-Corporation products which put very little back into the local or even national economy. People enjoy local craft beer for a few main reasons: it's fun, it's something to take pride in, and it puts money directly back into our economy. 10 Barrel may continue to make good beer, but they have lost these important aspects that made people EXCITED to drink their beer. If anyone wants to keep supporting them, there's nothing wrong with that. But they should understand why people would chose not to when there's perfectly good LOCAL companies that need the support to fight against the evil-empire of In-Bev.

Re: “Guru Donuts Gears Up For Grand Opening

The legislators should have to 'weigh-in' at the beginning of the session in '15 and at the end to see how much they 'put on' by the end due to the inevitable multiple stops at 'Guru' for donuts each week (day)! That location will be only too enticing for them. A short walk to a whole lotta calories!!!!

Re: “Downtown Boise Brewpub Part of Big Beer Purchase

This makes me sad. I will not continue to be a patron of 10 Barrel for many reasons. I am not a fan of Anheuser-Busch and this takes the whole, "local-beer" out of the local so you can't sit here and tell us that it doesn't change anything. You insult our intelligence when you say silly things like that. Sell outs!

Sorry, but Goose Island's beer has been noticeably worse quality since they were bought...

Re: “Downtown Boise Brewpub Part of Big Beer Purchase

They must have been aligned with A-B's distribution in Oregon, because they aren't in Idaho.

Re: “Amore for Amaros

Amaro Montenegro is also a very nice introduction to amaros. Great bottle too!
