Hey TR, do any of the Boise beers make it over to you? There are plenty of good Boise beers IMO. I rarely post about them because they don't get too far out of town/state, but you might be close enough to see some.
I think I might have seen Edge beer here in town, but not sure if you would call it a craft beer.

I'll keep an eye out for Boise beer, are there any specific breweries or beers you have in mind?
 
I had never heard of White Claw, it sounds like a remedy for an upset stomach. And the $28 per bottle Bourbon Barrel Aged Bananaversary Imperial Stout doesn't sound much better, it sounds like it might taste like Four Loko or a piña colada. (Not there's anything wrong with piña coladas, I actually like some of the more foo-foo umbrella drinks. But don't want my beer to taste all foo-foo.)

Sockeye (Angel's Perch, Hell Diver, Dagger Falls) and Woodland (City of Trees) are my two favorites. Bear Island (Idaho Potato Ale), Powderhaus, Lost Grove. Ram, and Edge are also good, not to mention several small places that only have beer on tap (so obviously you can't get those). There are several like Boise Brewing, Payette, others, that I drink if I'm at their place, but don't necessarily buy it for home consumption.

That's quite a list, I didn't know Idaho produced so much craft beer. Think I'll ask the sommelier at Market of Choice next time I go there, in addition to fine wine he also orders the beer, and he apparently rotates his orders according to season, popularity, and sales. So I'll let you know what I find out.

That's only a partial list of Boise beer. There are some good beers from other parts of the state too. Per capita, Idaho does really well beer wise IMO! If you are going to special order something, see if they can get the Bear Island Idaho Potato Ale since its a bit unique (in taste and to the state).
