Stopped by for the first time tonight....It had been recommended a couple of times by others....

I liked it the moment I walked in. The open feel that lets you almost sit around the tanks is great. Big long bar is welcoming along with the bench seating tables.

3 beers on tap. I was hoping for more (which I hear they are getting more).

Foos ball looked like fun but I didn't play tonight.

The could really use more fans as it was a 100 degrees outside.

The food trucks pulling up is a great idea.

I liked it it and will be back soon

Payette is a huge brewery and taproom on the outskirts of downtown Boise. They're clearly a production brewery, with a long row of refrigerator cases for take-away sixers and half-racks. The seating area is pretty giant, with a big outdoor area as well with cornhole set up for entertainment. When I visited, there were 18 house taps plus cider and wine -- they even had a guest sour! The beer is good and I was impressed with the service; once I started talking to my server about craft breweries he was all too happy to give recommendations in Boise. I'd definitely visit Payette again.

Based on 3 visits in June 2017.
Innovative and varied list of beers on tap. Variable quality. Flights available. No food but frequent food trucks at night. Large outdoors area plus a largish interior - lends a laidback atmosphere even when crowded. Nicely located on the greenway. Very friendly staff.

Pretty low-key vibe at this place. I went to the newer facility in downtown Boise and they had about 15 beers on tap. No food on site, but they had a pretty good food truck out front and said there is one there almost everyday. Most of the beers I tried were in the pretty good range. Kids and dogs are welcome there.

Simple relatively unfinished drinking area. Cramped when crowded. Accessible brewing area and delivery bay yard game area. Odd mixing clientele. Service less than stellar but setting and vibe don't set the bar high. Great beer but I'd rather drink it anywhere other than the brewery.

Easily one of the top breweries in the state. My personal favorite. Never a disappointment. Growing barrel aged offering.

Payette’s tap room offers some small close space to enjoy their beers in a friendly environment. Limited to their constant releases ands a few seasonals the selection is low, but if you’re in the neighborhood. a great place to have one before heading home.
