Clairvoyant Brewing opens it's doors to the public today (Friday, September 22, 2017) becoming the 59th Active Brewery in Idaho and the 22nd Brewery in the Treasure Valley (if you include Ontario Oregon). The blog that I wrote two weeks ago was about White Dog Brewing and I claimed that they were the 57th Brewery in Idaho, failing to count the Shattuck Brewery in Elk River, Idaho. So White Dog Brewing was the 58th Brewery in Idaho.
We had a fun visit with Mike Edmudson on Thursday, September 14th. Clairvoyant Brewing opened their doors for a soft opening for the Snake River Brewers homebrew club with an offering of four of their beers.
It was a "Long and Winding Road" for Mike Edmudson, Ryan and Tim Carter as their original target date for opening their brewery was way back in 2015. Once they found their location and drew up their original plans, many changes turn their final plan.
Clairvoyant already had three competent brewers, but all of them had full time jobs. The Decision was mad to add a full time brewer.
Head Brewer, Eric Brooks
Originally from Rockville, Maryland, Eric moved to Colorado after college to study and brew craft beer. There he met his fiancee Lindsey, a native Idahoan, who also worked in the craft beer industry. After having a baby named Madison, Lindsey and Eric decided it was time to move back home to her family in Boise.
Eric has been in the beer industry for almost 8 years. He brings his craft beer knowledge, artistry and practical skill to your pint glass. He enjoys brewing stouts, kettle sours, and non-traditional experimental beers. He also has a solid foundation in brewing the traditional favorites.
