FEATURED EVENT





Beer Release and Fundraiser
at

Saturday, March 2nd
12:00 pm - 7:00 pm

"When we found out a friend was ill, the entire Treasure Valley brewing community came together in a way no other industry could. How can we help? We asked. So we decided to host a benefit brew for a local legend and his family with the help of other Treasure Valley breweries."  

Come out for the release of "Carbo Joe" Amber Ale. A portion of the proceeds of this beer will go to Joe and his family, and we will be accepting cash and check donations on their behalf as well. A portion of Beer Buddy card sales at the event will also go to Joe and his family. 

Drink for a good cause! 

Food available from

Ear Candy from 2-5!

Participating Breweries:
Payette Brewing

You know you are part of something bigger when a whole community comes together rooting for one of their own! 
Mother Earth is canning Carbo Joe with the   Sockeye Brewing crew. Nothing tighter than a craft beer community! We are rooting for you Joe!

The purpose of the Beer Judge Certification Program is to:
Encourage knowledge, understanding, and appreciation of the world's diverse beer, mead, and cider styles;
Promote, recognize, and advance beer, mead, and cider tasting, evaluation, and communication skills; and
Develop standardized tools, methods, and processes for the structured evaluation, ranking and feedback of beer, mead, and cider.

We certify and rank beer judges through an examination and monitoring process, sanction competitions, and provide educational resources for current and future judges.

The BJCP was founded in 1985 and has administered the Beer Judge Examination to 12,051 individuals worldwide. 7,841 are currently active judges in the program, with 904 holding the rank of National or higher. Since we started keeping detailed records, our members have judged over 1,554,338 beers and we have sanctioned over 9,339 competitions.
