Our purpose:

Idaho Brewers United is a non-profit 501(c)6 trade organization founded in 2012 and is dedicated to the craft beer industry in Idaho. Our efforts are focused on the following areas:

  • Legislative/Regulatory: To give craft brewers a unified voice in addressing all issues, governmental or other, which affect the regulation of our industry.

  • Education: To provide opportunities for members to further their brewing knowledge and to educate the consumer about Idaho’s craft beer industry, and to encourage responsible, moderate consumption.

  • Promotion: To promote its members and their products to other brewers, suppliers, legislators, tourists and the general public.

IBU membership includes Idaho craft breweries, breweries-in-planning, associated-industry businesses and craft beer enthusiasts. Members of IBU make-up a dynamic and connected community who support, protect, and promote the craft beer industry across the state and beyond.
