SPRING CREEK BREWING COMPANY IS A DESTINATION BREWERY AND PIZZA RESTAURANT LOCATED IN THE AVIMOR COMMUNITY ABOUT 2 MILES NORTH OF SHADOW VALLEY GOLF COURSE ON HIGHWAY 55 ON THE BANKS OF SPRING VALLEY CREEK.
Jeff & Lori Badigian and Marc & Gina Grubert's new brewery at Avimor is Idaho's most beautiful brewery in my opinion and I have been to nearly every brewery in the State of Idaho. Spring Creek becomes the 28th active brewery in the Treasure Valley and the 76th active brewery in the State of Idaho. It is the second brewery in Idaho to be built from the ground up. Almost all Idaho breweries took over buildings that housed a different business prior to being converting into a brewery.
Check HERE to see a list of all the breweries in Treasure Valley.
Lots of outdoor seating in the back and on the southside of the brewery.

This is where the pizza is made and cooked over a wood fire.
|Plenty of wood to keep the fire going|
|Big Pizza oven to cook multiple pizzas at one time|
The Brew System
Seven Beer Barrel Brew System with fifteen bbl fermentors and bright tanks. It should be big enough to have eleven Spring Creek beers on tap.

Indoor Seating Area
|View from setting at the bar.|
|Ample space between tables for social distancing|
|Note one of the overhead doors behind this group of Happy Customers.|
Large Overhead doors connect the main dining area to the West Side Out Door seating area.
|As you enter the dining area, you can see all the overhead doors to the deck|
