DOW (Drinks of the Week): Payette Brewing Company

This week we give you Idaho’s largest craft brewery, Payette Brewing Company.  These guys are making beer hand over fist and feature a ton of great brews.  They have plenty of year-round brews and then some limited releases as well.  This week we will be trying out two of their brews “Recoil” and “Rodeo.”  

IMG_5105The Facts:  Recoil

ABV:  6.5%

IBU’s: 80

Style: India Pale Ale

WAS IT GOOD:  I think the recoil is when my head snaps back from that IPA flavor.  Personally not a fan of IPA’s only because the market is saturated with them these days.  Recoil didn’t come off like most that I have had though,  it had a good flavor profile.   It was nice to enjoy them while watching some football this past weekend.

GARAGE FRIDGE ADDITION: If you got room put them in there.


The Facts:  Rodeo

ABV:  4%

IBU’s: 35

Style: Citra Pale Ale

WAS IT GOOD:  Saddle up cowboy it’s Rodeo time.  This was my favorite of the two.  It had a much smoother taste to it.  I like the hint of fruity notes inside of this one.  I could have had about ten of these guys if I didn’t have to work the next day.

GARAGE FRIDGE ADDITION: Yes, this is a good end of work week brew.  Good color good flavor.


Mother of Dragons was good, Elysian never disappoints, and I could easily pass on the Shuckin Pumpkin.


The HIghlight of the week was on Halloween Night.  One of the Neighbors a few years ago created the Halloween Mobile Bar.  People search the area each year just to get an adult beverage free of charge, if you are 21 and over.
