A little place in a strip mall. It has a small but quality and varied bottled beer selection. They also have about eight beers on tap. Most beers are from Idaho, Washington, Oregon and California with a smattering of U.K., Belgium and German beers. You can drink the beers on site or to-go in a 32 or 64 oz growler. They also have food. We had a Santa Fe cheese dip and Green Pepper Chili. Both were great. The only annoying thing was that three out of the eight beers listed on tap were not actually available. Update the tap list! It was a Wednesday early afternoon and the place had great business. I hope they do well.

My Wife and I stopped in on a Saturday to try some new beer, when we met Jeff, who was more than happy to help us. Walked out with 9 new beers to try and an invitation to come back for the Big O Festival... We ended up enjoying 3 days of the 6 day festival there and had a great time. The food is very good, the atmosphere is not overly noisy and the service is great. This is quickly becoming our place to hang out and enjoy new brews...

Horrible customer service. I placed an order with Brewforia on May 18th and my card was charged on the 21st with no tracking number sent to me. On the 23rd I emailed them to find out why my card was charged but I had yet to receive a tracking number and received no response. The next day I received a tracking number and all was well.

When I received the box from the looks I was scared there was going to be damage but luckily there was not. The fact nothing was broken was nothing short of a miracle. However, if the shipping practice they used for my box is the norm I guarantee there is to be issues for others. The box had about 3 feet of shipping paper folded in the bottom and then the Cans and Bottles just sitting on top of that and not wrapped. I'm truly amazed everything made it ok. Kudos to UPS I guess.

Here's where the real fun starts I order 4 items and only received 3 of those items. There were also 3 extra cans in the box but I assumed these were clearly extra's as this is normal for beer ship places to do. So I give them a call to inquire about my missing bottle and immediately the lady states they'll just issue me a refund and doesn't offer to ship me the missing bottle or anything. She says I'll receive an email shortly from them with the details of my refund. No big deal just a little confused why they didn't offer to ship the bottle.

Well I didn't receive and email and see no pending payments on my account so I decided to give them a call again. This time the same lady tells me they called me on the 20th(Sunday) and spoke to me and I agreed to exchange the missing bottle for the 3 cans. Really you called me on a Sunday??? I think I would remember this conversation oh and I think I would have a record of this call in my call log too? She admittedly says "well I don't know what to tell you the customer agreed to this." She finally agreed to issue refund again however, I'm not holding my breath.

Based on their packing practice and lack of customer service I would advise to not do business with Brewforia.

Simply put, Brewforia in Meridian, Idaho has the best selection of bottled beers in the Treasure Valley and probably the best selection in the whole state. There may be a handful of other locales with more bottled choices - but I doubt there are many and most of those probably include watered down lists full of macro brews. The number of choices in the craft brew and import categories at Brewforia is truly extensive and well thought out.

There are also a fair number of draft choices available (usually 6-10 options at any given time). Typically you will find a barley wine on tap and a stout and/or porter, a wheat/wit/weizen of some kind, a pale ale or two and an IPA or two although the selection can occasionally vary a bit.

The food menu is small but inventive with some great asian flavors and tastes of the Northwest included in their popular wing and flatbread lists. The menu has expanded this winter to include a few more interesting sandwiches and appetizers that I look forward to sampling in the coming months.

All in all this is a great establishment that is a real asset to the local craft brew loving community. It's also a nice option for anyone passing through Idaho to check out during a visit to the Treasure Valley, stop in and see for yourself if you get the chance.

Minnesota

1.28/5  rDev -67%

Update 9/7/2012. I have bought beer online from this store in the past, and had good experiences, but the last experience I had was ridiculous, and I feel the need to change this review completely.

I attempted to place an order with Brewforia on 8/22. Their site said they ship to Minnesota, and I have bought from them before. I placed my order, and 2 days later, was informed that they do not ship to Minnesota, or at least not anymore. I told them that I had to cancel the order, since I could not afford the time or expense of driving a long ways to another state, to pick up my order from a friend.

I was told my credit card would be refunded the amount of the purchase price. This was on 8/24. I checked online, and the charge is still showing up. I contacted my credit card company to dispute the charges, and forwarded a copy of the credit memo Brewforia sent me. I will not have to pay the charge, since they didn't ship anything, but I find their business practices to be shady when they stated on their web site that they ship to MN, and then don't want to issue a refund after they fail to ship. I contacted them 3 times, and finally gave up, and decided to let the credit card company handle the issue.

Take my advice, don't buy from Brewforia.

As with all online stores shipping can be pricey. Saddy they don't ship to Virginia anymore but I still place orders through another address.

Their selection is top-notch and their use of social-media to update on their stock is a good use of available tools.

I've placed 5 orders with them over the past couple of years. The first shipment was poorly packaged but they enquired about the shipment and I've had not problems since then.

The website is easy to navigate and the checkout process is quick. Order status and history also available.

I'd definitely use them again.
