In a state famous for producing great potatoes, it’s easy to forget about Idaho’s barley and hops. Few states can boast the quality barley grown in southern and eastern Idaho or the aromatic hops grown in Treasure Valley. These crops combine to create a beer that is distinctly Idaho - a taste of home. In “Idaho Beer: From Grain to Glass in the Gem State,” Koonce tracks the state’s storied brewing heritage and offers an in-depth look at Idaho’s vibrant modern beer scene. With more than 20 breweries in our neighboring state there’s much to see, and taste, in Idaho. Reading, discussion, book signing and beer sampling.
