About us

experts in the craft

Our journey in brewing commenced in 1996 in Boise, Idaho, within the confines of a modest warehouse nestled off Federal Way, on the eastern side of Treasure Valley. During that inaugural year, our production amounted to fewer than one hundred barrels, primarily enjoyed within the confines of our brewery. Fast forward to 2023, and we're poised to brew approximately 10,000 barrels, with our reach extending to Idaho, Montana, Alaska, and Eastern Oregon. Throughout this evolution, we've had the privilege of introducing some of the most iconic ales and lagers to the Pacific Northwest. Our unwavering commitment to innovation, refinement, and the pursuit of brewing excellence endures, just as resolutely as it did on our very first day.

Our story

Humble (yet bold) beginnings

It all began with a dream to create exceptional ales and lagers that would stand out in the ever-evolving craft beer landscape. Over the years, Sockeye Brewing has not only survived but thrived in a competitive industry. We've garnered numerous awards, proudly holding more medals than any other brewery in Idaho. These accolades serve as a testament to the unwavering commitment to quality that runs deep within our organization.

At Sockeye Brewing, our story is still being written. We continue to push the boundaries of brewing, explore new flavors, and create exceptional experiences for our patrons. We are proud of our history, but we're even more excited about what the future holds as we keep pursuing our passion for brewing and serving the community. Cheers to the journey ahead!
