Sourcing many of the meats and veggies for their pub style menu from local farms and ranches, the Bittercreek Alehouse offers the best glimpse into the flavors of southern Idaho. Find the perfect complement to the spicy lamb burger or fried chicken and waffles entrée in one of 39 northwestern made microbrews. If you’re off the mountain early, do some eco-conscious drinking during the Low-Power Happy Hour, two hours of low lighting and lower beer prices from 4-6 pm. Try the adjacent Red Feather Lounge for modern and stylish eats.
The Cactus Bar has everything needed after a long day on the mountain: cheap beer and a stiff pour. Home to regular day-drinkers and Boise State co-eds alike, the Cactus provides the perfect venue to mingle with the local wildlife. Centrally located on Main Street, it offers a great jump off point for exploring the diverse downtown Boise bar scene that includes cowboy bars, Irish pubs, and bottle service nightclubs.
