Portneuf Valley Brewing, Pocatello, ID

I stopped in at Portneuf Valley Brewing in Pocatello, Idaho for dinner and a beer with colleagues.  I enjoyed the Smoked Salmon Salad and I shared the Giant Salty Pretzel with a buddy.  One of my colleagues ordered a flight of all beers on tap, and honestly they were all great!  I enjoyed the Ligertown Lager.  Nice balanced malty beer.  I was hoping for more of a connection to Napoleon Dynamite, though.  I most enjoyed the Belligerent Ass Nut Brown Ale.  Deep, caramelly, malty, nutty flavor.  Great on a cold evening.  I really wanted to pick up the t-shirt but not sure that would go well back home.

I stopped in at the Idaho Brewing Company in Idaho Falls, Idaho and had a taste of the What a Pear fruit lager just because it sounded so unique.  It tasted almost like champagne with its effervescence and fruitiness.  I enjoyed a glass of the Bad Badger ESB. This would not typically be my go to style but it was on sale at $3.00  pint on Tuesday night and I couldn’t resist.  It was a very tasty beer with balanced malt and hops.

I stopped in at Wildlife Brewing in Victor, Idaho for lunch and a quick beer.  I wish I had tried the pizza but I went with the sesame chicken salad and was not disappointed.  I hav heard their pizza is excellent.  I tried the Bear Claw Black Ale which wasn’t hoppy enough to be a black IPA and wasn’t heavy enough to be a porter.  It had great flavor and went well with the salad.
