Grand Teton Brewing
Established in 1988, Grand Teton Brewing was Idaho’s first microbrewery. Located in Victor, Idaho, this family-run brewery offers a wide variety of craft beers such as their flagship “Sweetgrass American Pale Ale” or their award-winning “Bitch Creek ESB.” They also offer seasonal brews like their popular “Double Vision Doppelbock.” If you’re ever in town, be sure to stop by. You’ll find many locals in both summer and winter in the late afternoons after a day on the trail or in the snow. You can grab a lawn chair and head out into the yard to enjoy the evening sunset in the summer. Or, in the winter months, there is an indoor tasting room and heated porch area to spend a few hours chatting with your friends about the day.
Wildlife Brewing is located in Victor, Idaho and specializes in small-batch ales that are inspired by the wildlife and outdoor activities that define this beautiful region. Some of their most popular beers include their flagship “Mighty Bison Brown”. Beers are rotating often and there is always something great on tap. Enjoy some time at the shuffleboard or the dartboard. Don’t forget that Wildlife also has a tasty menu with a focus on delicious pizza and calzones.
