The Bittercreek Alehouse is excellant!

Many, Many beers a Mainer can not find. Stone Oaked Arrogant on tap. I had had a few beers that night so I didn't hit it. I had a tiny sample and it was really smooth. I had a pint of Hop Trip from Dechutes and it was fantastic.
The open bar and lounge concept was great. A few low tables and high tops throughout and open kitchen in back. A lot of cool beer art and an incredible back bar. The taps were encased in a rare stone which had a nice golden backlight to it.

The bartender was the bar manager and former GM. He was extremely friendly, knowledgeable and very proud of the selection there. All the wine was pumped with nitrogen for the Bittercreek and adjacent Red Feather wine bar which was connected.

You could sit for hours and taste a huge array of beers!

It is located downtown and should not be overlooked when in the great city of Boise!

I love the Bittercreek. Boise is a bit thin on quality beer bars, but this place always seems to have something new and interesting.

Bittercreek averages around 20-30 beers on tap, specializing in west coast breweries as you'd expect. One very cool thing about this establishment is that they always have something on cask (recently, Lagunitas Maximus and North Coast Brewing's IPA) and they also keep up on the Rogue John's Locker Stock series, which isn't bottled and is generally pretty hard to find.

The menu is pretty varied, with salads and sandwiches dominating. Small plates are available, of which I've tried the Thai chicken lettuce wraps (darn good) and calamari (darn overpriced). I love the line of hamburgers they have, with quite a few interesting options. Huntsman cheese, applewood smoked bacon, Tillamook cheddar, etc. The brisket sandwich is pretty darn good, and they have the best Cobb salad I've ever tried.

Food prices are a bit high, beer prices are average for the area. The selection changes about every two weeks and I have yet to find them at a lacking for interesting choices in the beer category.

Good food, great beer selection, casual atmosphere. A winner.
