YOU ARE COMING TO OUR TOWN AND WE CAN’T WAIT TO WELCOME YOU TO BEAUTIFUL BOISE, IDAHO.
The Beer Marketing and Tourism Conference is right around the corner and we are incredibly excited to welcome everyone to Boise, Idaho! If you live here, then you know how awesome it is that such a cool conference is going to take place in our own beautiful, beer-bustling city. If this will be your first trip, you’re in for an experience you’ll not soon forget.
Hi fellow beer lovers, I’m Paige Francis. I moved to Boise 10 years ago and fell head-over-heels with this wonderful city. Aside from the great learning opportunities available to you at the BMTC, I encourage you to check out as much of the city and surrounding outdoor adventures as you can—especially the incredible beer scene! If you want some fun ideas for things to do, places to eat, want to find a dynamic bar-scene hang-out, yoga class, or simply want to find a beautiful place to rest and refresh after a full-day at the conference, I’m your gal. Or, just ask any of the Payette staff members for ideas.
Payette Brewing Company opened in Boise in May of 2011 by my husband, Michael Francis. We outgrew our original brewery, and in June of 2016, renovated a vacant 32,000-square-foot athletic facility and made it our new home—Payette Brewing Company in Downtown Boise along the Boise River.
The line-up of speakers and contributors at the conference is impressive and got us at Payette Brewing Company so excited, we decided to throw a party! Not just any ‘ol party, but a knock-your-socks-off party! And beyond that, because we are so committed to the message and mission of the conference, we knew we needed to be a Premier Sponsor. The beer industry needs to fully support the beer industry.
BEER MARKETING AND TOURISM CONFERENCE EVENING PARTY
After a full day at the conference, we know you will be ready to have a beer and visit with your fellow attendees. Come hangout with us in our brewing production area. Here is a sampling of what we have planed for you!
- Crazy games, corn hole, and live music from local acoustic musician, Spencer Batt.
- A token for a free pint of beer and unlimited three-ounce pours of some of Payette’s flagship brands.
- 20-30 minute guided brewery tours at 7:30 and 8:30 PM.
- Local and incredible food trucks on-site for dinner (non-hosted)
- Lime and Coconut, the Art of Thai Cuisine that offers traditional dishes from various regions in Thailand.
- Big Daddy’s Meat Wagon, a protein intensive food truck that offers poutine, fries, burgers and sandwiches.
- Local partners will be on-site, such as City Peanut Shop handing out free Brewer’s Nuts samples and The STIL ice cream shop offering free booze infused ice cream samples. Bags of nuts and scoops of ice cream will be available for purchase. You won’t want to miss that! Right?
It is easy to join the party, so don’t think twice about it.
