My friends and I dined at Bittercreek Alehouse in the summer. It secured a spot on our list of local places to try. When we arrived, we were seated indoors where it was kind of noisy with dozens of people chatting. Meanwhile, sports were showing on the TVs. It took some extra effort to talk to each other because of how loud it was, but that’s not a complaint. It’s all part of the vibe of the place. There’s outdoor seating as well, and in the summer they turn on a mist cooling system so it’s not too hot.
We ordered a mix of burgers and poutine, and paired it with some beer. Prices are typically in the two-digits, but everything was delicious and I had absolutely no complaints. The service was friendly and attentive as well.
The one thing I appreciated most about Bittercreek Alehouse is that they’re transparent about where their ingredients come from. Two thumbs up for that because you don’t always see restaurants do this. Not everything at Bittercreek is sourced locally, but they prioritize making local and ethically produced food. If you click here, you can see that they do get a lot of their ingredients within Idaho, as well as neighboring states like Washington and Oregon.
Boise is full of local businesses, so you’re always going to get a unique experience wherever you go. Bittercreek Alehouse is a worthwhile local experience that I’d highly recommend if you’re looking for a place to try in the city.
Another pub worth checking out is 10 Barrel Brewing Co., which is a short two-minute walk east.
