Payette Brewing Introduces New Packaging Option
Boise, Idaho (May 13, 2016) - Payette Brewing Company, Idaho's largest brewery, is excited to announce an all-new addition to their packaging line up, the P8yette Eight Pack! This month, Payette Brewing will celebrate their 5th year anniversary and what better way to say thank you to their fans, than eight Payette Pale Ale cans for the price of six! Payette Brewing sees this addition as a point of difference to separate themselves from other package options that are on the shelves. 
"Every time you order our beer at a bar or pick up a six-pack off the shelf, you make our dream job possible. As a thank you for supporting Payette the past five years and more to come, we're offering the same great six pack, with two beers on us," says Paige Coyle, Graphic Design and Marketing.
P8yette Eight Packs are starting to hit shelves in Idaho with all other markets soon to follow. 
Payette Pale Ale is brewed heavier on the hops with a prominent floral nose and a hint of earth, herb and citrus. At 4.8% and 35 IBU's, its refreshing sweetness and clean pine finish makes this pale ale perfect for apr├Ęs anything, before anything works too!
Beer fans are encouraged to follow Payette's social media for the latest updates or visit www.PayetteBrewing.com 

MyDD is looking for a pair of drivers to join our team. Hours are 6PM-3:30AM Friday and Saturdays. Easy extra money. PM My DD  for more info.
