IBU will screen "For the Love of Craft" at the Festival starting at 4:45pm (Beers flow until 6:00pm so you will be able to properly enjoy the film).

For the Love of Craft is a documentary short produced by the Brewers Association, Studio C3, and Charlie Papazian that peels back the label of what it means to be a craft brewer and reveals the true heart of craft by introducing the people behind it. From the luminaries and icons of the craft world, to the industry’s newest players, this film will dive deep and expose the desires, dreams, wisdoms, and naiveties of people pursuing their passions – through independence. Interviews include Larry Bell, Kevin Blodger, Ken Grossman, Kim Jordan, and Jim Koch.


Event Policies:

  • Q: Are there ID requirements or an age limit to enter the event?

    A: All festival attendees must be 21 or older to enter, even if they are designated drivers and are not drinking. A valid government ID (driver's license, passport, etc.) is required for festival entry, with NO exceptions.

  •  Q: What is the refund policy?

    A: Tickets are non-refundable. The festival will occur rain or shine.

  • Q: I can no longer attend the event. Can I sell my ticket to someone else, or give it to a friend?

    A: Yes, tickets are transferrable and you may sell your ticket to someone else for face value plus whatever service fee was charged by, or less. You may also give your tickets away if you like. There is nothing special you need to do to transfer tickets to another person. You can verify ticket validity with us prior to agreeing to purchasing from a stranger. 

  • Q: Can I bring my 18-year-old son/daughter with me as a Designated Driver?

    A: No, all guests entering the festival must be 21 or older with a valid photo ID, even if they are entering on a non-drinking DD ticket.

  • Q: Can I bring my baby / young child with me into the event?

    A: Children and infants are not permitted under any circumstances, for their own safety and the safety of our guests. Thank you for understanding that these festivals are adult-only events.

    Your ticket directly supports IBU's mission to promote, educate, and legislate on behalf of Idaho's breweries. What does this mean for you? More local choices of better beer at more places.

    When you visit an Idaho brewery, buy Idaho beer instead of a national or imported brand, and attend an Idaho Brewers United event, you’re supporting small, local businesses that brew great beer and regularly give back to their communities.
