Looking for Boise’s Best Beer? Come to Sockeye’s Grill & Brewery at 12542 W Fariview Ave, near Cloverdale Road, or on Cole Road near Ustick. Boise’s Best Beer is an Idaho IPA of distinction—Dagger Falls IPA, the flagship beer for Sockeye Brewing. It’s a legendary Idaho IPA, named for one of the rapids on the famed Middle Fork of the Salmon River—a wild and scenic river in the Idaho designated wilderness. Sockeye Brewing was named for the salmon that returns to its birthplace in the shadow of the Sawtooth Mountains after traveling to the Pacific Ocean.
Sockeye brews are on tap throughout the Treasure Valley and across Idaho, as well as migrating beyond our native borders to NE Washington, Seattle, WA, E Oregon, and Utah. Along with fresh pours from the tap, Sockeye can be found in portable cans—making our fine, handcrafted brews easy to enjoy in the great outdoors of Idaho and the mountain West.
Now you can take delicious Idaho craft beer to high mountains, like Galena Summit, or to a humble Idaho creek bed. Backpackers are concerned about every ounce of weight in their pack, so don’t forget the stash you could leave at the end of the return trail. You figure out how to keep it cold, and the motherlode is waiting upon your return. Portability is probably the best part about canned beer, and there’s no better time than the warm months of summer and early fall to get out and put that portability to work for your enjoyment.
And let’s not forget easily portable cans that make a delicious reward on your fall hunting trip or fishing outing. Sockeye brews are tasty accompaniments to your prized catch!

Idaho beer was inspired on an Idaho river, home to Idaho’s legendary Sockeye salmon. This Sockeye travels hundreds of miles from birthplace to the Pacific and back in its lifetime.
