|Chris Baker brewing a new batch|
Chris Baker comes to Nampa from Kansas via California. He grew up in Kansas where he became a huge Jayhawk fan, the went to California where he graduated from Cal Poly SLO. Chris worked for Stone Brewing in San Diego before joining Mother Earth at their Vista Brewery. Chris was a brewer at Mother Earth for three years before moving to Idaho.

|This will be the way to the Entrance of the Tap Room|
The Brewery Building is huge with a lot of room for future growth. The picture below shows only half the space as a second adjoining building the same size connects on the south side of this one.

This is the canning line - Wild Goose State of the Art High Speed Canning line capable of filling 40 cans per minute of delicious Mother Earth beer.
Mother Earth's Nampa brewery is located at the End of Madison Avenue (you may find it a little tricky to find). Take Exit 36 (Franklin) then immediately turn right on 3rd Avenue North. Travel .5 miles, where you will turn right on 8th Street North. This street curves slightly to the north and becomes Madison Avenue. Travel about 1/3 of a mile and turn into the parking lot surrounded by a tall wire fence topped with razor wire.
There is currently very little signage, but they are not yet ready for guests. Dan assures me that there will be big signs when the Tap room opens.
