It has been a whirlwind ride for Collin Rudeen over the last two years since he started a kickstarter project to build Bogus Brewing somewhere in Boise. The official opening of the BOISE Brewing Brewery will be next Friday, June 13th, with their Grand Opening on June 21st. Boise Brewing will become the 41st Idaho Brewery and the 14th Boise Area Brewery. Read the Michael Deed's story to see the story about how Bogus Brewing became Boise Brewing here.
John Lemp owned and operated the Boise Brewery from 1864 to 1907 on Main Street between 3rd and 4th street. This new incarnation will be roughly 5 blocks away south and west of that location at 512 West Broad Street, Boise, Idaho 83702. It will also be Boise "Brewing", not Boise "Brewery". The original served beer and cold cut sandwiches to their patrons. Boise Brewing will be a Brewery with a tasting room similar to Payette Brewing and will not serve food.
Visit the Official Boise Brewing Website here. It may take several months to change the name on all the website/facebook and other other social media and of course the name on the building and all the glasses, shirts etc. But by the time ski season rolls around, Bogus will only refer to the Ski area.
