Beer+Friends Fest

  • Mother Earth Brew Co. 1428 Madison Avenue Nampa, ID, 83687 United States (map)

Beer+Friends, the official closing event of Idaho Craft Beer Month, will bring Idaho breweries (the beer) together with cider, wine, and food (the friends) to end the month with a bang! We hope you will join us Saturday April 27th for this exciting new event along with all of your friends. Expect over twenty Idaho breweries along with Idaho wine, cider, plus food from Brown Shuga Soul Food.

The event is free to enter however, if you wish to drink any tasty adult beverages, you will need to buy the event cup and tasting tokens. Pre-sale tasting packages are $25 and include your festival cup plus ten 14 tasting tokens. (It pays to buy early!) Tasting packages at the door will be $30 and include a festival cup plus ten tasting tokens. Additional tokens may be purchased at the event for $2/each. Additional Festival cups also available for $2. Buy tickets online at or at the door!

We're offering a FREE shuttle bus from Boise to Mother Earth is you would like to hitch a ride there and get a safe ride home. Starting at 11am, a bus will leave the Riverside Hotel (2900 W Chinden Blvd, Boise, ID 83714) every hour on the hour and make the return trip from Mother Earth on the half hour. The last bus will leave Mother Earth at 6:30pm. The pick-up spot will be located on the Westside of the Riverside, near 32nd Street and prominently marked.

Proceeds benefit Idaho Brewers United who works to promote and educate Idaho's craft brewers. IBU also lobbies for brewery-friendly laws such as allowing minors in tasting rooms so by supporting a festival hosted by IBU, you can support the continued effort to pass more brewery-friendly laws.

No refunds. No Exchanges. Event is rain or shine (but it's indoors so that shouldn't be an issue). All ages welcome but please no dogs/pets. Service animals always welcome! Please drink responsibly and designate a driver or take the shuttle (and then designate a driver if needed).
