Payette Brewing Company

Payette Brewing Company was founded in Boise, Idaho by Michael Francis in 2010. Payette is proud to have been named “Best Brewery” in Boise for six consecutive years by Boise Weekly readers. The brewery expanded and opened their 60 BBL production facility in Downtown Boise in June of 2016. Payette gives back to the community on a weekly basis through the “Payette Forward” program.

When it comes to making uncompromising, awesome beer, we go against the grain. We are passionate, rebellious, beer pioneers. We stick to our guns and venture down the road less traveled to make the best beer in the west. This isn’t just our livelihood, it’s our life and we’ve tapped into something good.

To that end, our mission is to continually brew awesome beers while building a culture that connects, educates, makes a difference and champions the craft brew industry to our consumers, community and partners.

History

Mike Francis left corporate life as an industrial engineer at Boeing Company in Seattle to engineer some industry of his own. After receiving an Associate’s Degree in Brewing Technology from Chicago’s Siebel Institute of Technology, followed by a stint at Schooner Exact Brewing in Seattle, Mike headed to his home turf of Boise in 2010 to establish Payette Brewing Company.

We chose the name Payette because it fits the way we live and work. François Payette was a French Canadian trapper whose name and memory is enshrined among numerous Idaho landmarks. The name has since become synonymous with an adventurous spirit that pervades Idaho’s year-round outdoor lifestyle.

The Taproom

Our Tap Room is a great place to enjoy any of the current brews we have on tap and gather with friends. We are located along the Boise River in Downtown Boise and open seven days a week. We offer twenty beers on tap, local wine and cider, non-alcoholic options, merchandise for sale and a wide variety of beer-to-go. Our Tap Room is connected to the beer garden, where you can enjoy lawn games and easy access to a local food truck. The mezzanine can be accessed through the Tap Room, which gives you a bird’s-eye view of the brewery.
