Local Boise Brewing Takes On Anheuser-Busch
Nobody loves Boise more than Boise. There is something about our corner of the world that we take a whole lot of pride in. It's really impressive how Boiseans tend to support each other as well as local businesses. This is definitely a great example of that support.
I'm not the biggest beer drinker in the world, state or even my block but when it's hot out, (we're talking a hundred plus degrees out ) then a beer is a must in my world. Sunday when I landed back home in Boise it was right around 100 degrees so naturally a beer sounded great. I decided to stop at Legends at the Boise Spectrum Center to catch the game, get some dinner and that cold beer I was craving.
I walked in, sat down at the bar and almost immediately the bartender came over and asked me what I wanted to drink? I asked for a light beer. She looked at me with a huge smile on her face and asked are you from here? I replied - yes... she said I have the perfect beer for you. A minute later she set this Ice cold glass of Boise Light in front of me and then proceeded to tell me the story of how Boise Brewing decided to take on Anheuser -Busch the makers of Bud light with their own version of a tasty locally brewed light beer. The story she told was that Boise brewing actually sells the keg for one dollar less than Bud Light just to prove a point. Personally even if Boise Light was $1 more per glass I would still buy it. Not only would I be supporting my local brewery but I would be drinking a better beer and you can take my word for it. Boise Light has more flavor than Bud Light and it's just as refreshing on a hot Boise day. Have you tried Boise Light? Do you support local breweries?
