I went here for the release of the new Unicorn IPA. We had a great time and really enjoyed the pork tacos. The Unicorn IPA was just ok but we enjoyed several of the others that we sampled.

James and Bre are excellent business people who get to know their clientele. James crafts some amazing, quality beer. Friendly, outgoing staff. Second taproom downtown Boise but I prefer the original space in Garden City.
