Today is National Beer Day and Idaho is no stranger to local brews, as a matter of fact the Gem state has a plethora of breweries and with good reason, you see Idaho is the biggest barley producer and the third largest hops grower in the US.  In my humble opinion The Boise area has the BEST breweries with the exception of my fave McCall brewing which is located in McCall. Here is a list Boise breweries that you can raise a glass to on National Beer Day.
