Best Outpouring of Support for a Premium Pourer 

Edge Brewing

Staff Pick

Brewing beer in Idaho is all the rage right now, what with the dozens of Gem State microbreweries satiating our unending thirst. Sadly, things took a dramatic turn at Edge Brewing Company on July 10 when molten liquid from a brew kettle sprayed head brewer Kerry Thomas, burning nearly 30 percent of her body. Thomas was transported to the Burn Center at the University of Utah where she underwent a series of skin grafts. The typically-competitive Boise beer community rallied to hold a "Kegs for Kerry" event to raise thousands of dollars for their colleague's medical bills. An additional GoFundMe campaign collected more than $30,000. Thomas spent nearly a month in Utah before returning home to Boise in mid-August. Thomas said she was humbled by the outpouring of support and she hoped to resume doing her own pouring sooner than later.
