CLOUD 9 NANO BREWERY
This 4 BBL Nano Brewery is a Classic Neighborhood Pub situated within walking and biking distance of the North End AND Downtown. Talked to owners Jake and Maggie Lake on Sunday about their brewery.
They remind me of proud parents and Cloud 9 is their baby.
We arrived about 11:30 and there were about 6 people in the place. Good thing we got there early, because the place was full by 12:30. We order a flight of beer. All their beer was good and their Salted Caramel Stout is excellent. Also enjoyed their Never Say Never IPA. But their Double IPA is even better.
I went back to the Brew Room and visited with Jake Lake while he was watching over a batch of boiling wort. He said they are selling their beer as fast as they can brew it.
And they have food too. They try to use local ingredients and everything is fresh.
Great atmosphere in a place that has a coffee shop atmosphere (Not a big surprise as they are in a former coffee shop location). No TV or loud music here. You can sit and visit with your friends without a lot of background noise.
Jake and Maggie are going to be very successful. This is the only Brew Pub in Boise that has a neighborhood Pub feel. We will return!!!!
