I’ve written before about all the new breweries showing up here is the Boise area, and “Edge” is one of the newest. As of this writing the building is being gutted and remodeled and I over heard that they plan to start brewing in November.
HomebrewStuff’s Marcus Bezuhly is behind this venture and former Table Rock head brewer Kerry Caldwell will be making the beer. Apparently TR didn’t too much care for their folks, moon-lighting. Hard to think that in an industry known for brotherly (or sisterly) camaraderie, that they maybe felt a conflict of interest was brewing. (sorry)
Evidently Edge is going to be a full restaurant if I overheard correctly the other day while picking up some ingredients for my Berliner-Weisse. A recent Statesman article quotes Marcus stating there will be seating for over 80 and something a bit up from pub-grub will be served.
This is the same general area of town as the new Sockeye site and it will be nice to have a couple destinations like this on the west side after so much growth in Garden City and down town.
An eclectic range of brews are expected to come out of “Edge” as many of the backers of Edge are experienced home-brewers and beer judges. 20 gallon est batches” will go on some of the taps at Edge and the more popular ones will likely get a full scale run on their 15 Barrel system. I hoping for some really interesting stuff, and I’m sure there will be a lot of one-offs and experimental that I think will be Edge’s calling card and their mark on the exploding craft-beer scene in the Boise area.
