EDGE Brewing Company is happy to announce that its delicious beers will soon be available in six-pack 12oz cans! Edge is partnering with Boise River Canning to produce 4, 6, 12 and 24 pack options of Edge cans.

Obligatory and Hopkiss join the lineup

2016 Summer Seasonal, Hopkiss Dry Hopped Session Ale, will be moving to Edge’s year round lineup and will be available in 24-packs this weekend at the Costco Warehouse in Boise. 6-packs will soon be available at Treasure Valley Albertsons locations as well as Whole Foods in downtown Boise. It will then be released to many grocery, convenience stores and fine beer shops this spring. Hopkiss, at 5% and only 25 IBU, is the first beer of its kind to be made available to such a wide audience in Idaho. This easy drinking, sessionable blond ale is lightly kissed with Citra hops to give it a subtle hoppy flavor and aroma of fresh grapefruit. Hopkiss is truly a beer for everybody. IPA fans will get a smooth, low-abv alternative and light beer drinkers can try hops without overwhelming bitterness.

Obligatory Double IPA, Idaho’s best selling Double IPA, will be coming to 12oz cans in 4 and 6-packs. Six-packs will soon be available at all Albertsons stores in southern Idaho. Obligatory is a full flavored hop bomb boasting flavors of tropical fruit, citrus and pine with a smooth finish and almost no hint of the 9.2% alcohol.

To celebrate our jump into small package, Edge will be cracking open its new cans at various locations around the Treasure Valley. Edge will be celebrating at Bier:Thirty in Bown Crossing on Wednesday, January 4 from 6-8pm. Edge will be holding tastings on Friday, January 6 at Whole Foods in downtown Boise from 4-7pm and at The Boise Co-op at The Village in Meridian on Saturday, January 7 from 1-3pm. Cans will also be on sale at Edge’s brewpub (525 N. Steelhead Way in Boise) starting Thursday evening.


The Fourth of July has come and gone and we here in the Treasure Valley are right in the dog days of summer. At Edge, we’re trying to keep things nice and cool inside the brewery with the additions of two summer beers: Clementine Citron Circus IPA and Hop Kiss Session Pale and one new summer cider (along with a returning champion).

32oz Crowler of Hop Kiss

Hop Kiss Session Pale has been a big hit at the brewery since it came out in June. With the help of our friends at Treasure Valley Chevron, we were able to produce sixty 32oz crowlers of Hop Kiss to put into our cold case. They sold out in one week! Thanks to everyone who picked one up, we hope you enjoyed it! Hop Kiss is a wonderful light ale brewed with an insane amount of Citra hops to produce a grapefruity fresh nose with big citrus flavor and a smooth finish. At only 5.4%, it is an extremely sessionable alternative to our many delicious IPA’s. (It should be back on tap very soon!)

Clementine Citron Circus IPA (Pug in the Sun Clementine IPA) is last summer’s smash hit Citron Circus IPA infused with delicious Clementine to create a rich and juicy IPA. Citron Circus IPA is a juicy, melony IPA brewed with ultra premium Mosaic hops to give it a big hoppy finish. The hops and fruit blend together perfectly to produce a super refreshing, summer IPA that you need to experience. 22oz bottles and growler fills are available at Treasure Valley Chevron locations at Hwy 55 and Beacon Light and Gowen and I-84. 22oz bottles are available at Ruth’s Chris Steakhouse in downtown Boise.

Edge has also jumped into the flavored cider market with the brand new Huckleberry Cider! This sweet but tangy cider has an amazing nose of huckleberry, green apple and blueberry that carries through into the flavor. At only 6%, you can down a couple of these with dinner or on the porch during a hot summer day. You can find this at our pub and at Albertsons’ Town Tap growler stations sporadically over the summer all over the Treasure Valley. K.T. Perry, Edge’s Pear Cider, will be returning to the pub very soon as well, so please watch our website for that.

Lots of great summer choices are, or soon will be, available at our pub. If you would like to get one of these on tap or in a cold case near you, please tell them to contact their local Edge distributing partner.

One of the great pleasures of working in the craft beer industry is that you get to brew what you like to drink and share it with everyone else. That is especially the case for each brewery’s IPA.

Edge Brewing IPAIPA’s have become the standard bearer for craft breweries. It’s become the style that defines what your brewery can do in terms of flavor and style. As unfair as it may seem, if a brewery does not make a decent IPA, it probably won’t be taken seriously in the market.
Keeping that in mind, Edge has finally released its core IPA, EDGE IPA. This beer is exactly the type of IPA that Boise has needed in the market. Super citrusy Centennial and Falconer’s Flight hops make up the base of the beer while the wonderful Galena hop provides a nice bite on the back end of the beer. For the end of this beer, we wanted to reinforce the citrus flavor of the Centennials so we dry-hopped this beer with Cascade and Citra hops. While we wait to get the super sweet and tart Lemondrop hops into the brewery, we are using the ultra-flavorful Jarrylo hops to add some lime and white wine flavors to the beer.

Edge IPA is a West Coast style IPA and is the type of IPA we like to drink around here. We can’t wait to share it with you! It’s available in 22oz bottles at every Albertsons in the Treasure Valley and on tap around town. If you would like it on tap at your favorite watering hole, just ask them to put it on! It’s available on tap and in the cold case here at the brewery as well. Let us know what you think of the new IPA on the Social Medias and we hope you love it as much as we do!

Look for this label at your favorite Albertsons!

EDGE Brewing Company recently partnered with Boise craft beer pioneer Bittercreek Ale House to brew a beer to celebrate its 20 Year Anniversary. The beer, an English Style pale ale called Denali Dave’s Pale Ale, will be available at Bittercreek Ale House in downtown Boise and at Edge’s west Boise pub.

The name, Denali Dave, was created by four employees handpicked by Bittercreek’s managerial team to meet with Edge head brewer Kerry Thomas and dream up a beer that Bittercreek will keep on tap for the duration of its birthday celebration. Denali Dave refers to Bittercreek Ale House owner David Krick and makes reference to the GMC Denali he used to drive around his Eighth Avenue building.

The beer, which comes in at around 6% alcohol and 56 IBU, was brewed with ultra-premium malts from Great Western Malting of Pocatello and Best Malz of Germany. Mosaic and Jarrylo hops make up the bulk of the hop bill to give the beer subtle hints of white wine, grapefruit and orange zest. Summer hops were added in the dry hop to give the beer a rich, melon-like aroma that does not overwhelm the toasty malt balance.

Denali Dave Pale Ale will be available this week at Bittercreek Ale House and Edge Brewing Company until the beer is gone.

Return of the Badunk

Join us in welcoming back two ‘cult favorites’ to Edge’s tap-list; Badunkamonk Belgian Tripel and Imperial Red Ale. These two beers dominated the spring in Boise in 2014 and we have decided to bring them back not just for spring time enjoyment, but for year round quaffing.

Badunkamonk, if you haven’t tried it, is a wonderful, strong Belgian golden ale with wonderful flavors of bubble gum, light crackery malts, grassy hops and delicious Belgian yeast esters that evoke flavors of pepper and banana. At just over 9%, Badunkamonk delivers strong alcohol with light, delicate flavors. Grab a globe at Edge or find it on tap at Pinnacle Sports Grill in Meridian and at the Albertsons Growler Station at 36th and State Street for a Super Bowl growler that will be the talk of your big game party.

Imperial Red Ale is a big, bold hoppy red ale that doesn’t skimp on anything. Another beer that clocks in at around 9%, IRA has flavors of huge piney, Simcoe hops, complex malt flavors of caramel, roasted almonds and hints of graham cracker. The hops dominate the nose with pine, plum and overripe stone fruit that complement the complex malt flavors. It can be enjoyed at Edge’s pub and will show up on tap around the Treasure Valley next week. Ask for it at your favorite pub!

July 10, 2015 was an awful day at Edge Brewing Company. Our head brewer, Kerry Thomas, was grievously injured in what was later determined to be a boil-over on the brew stand. In the end, she suffered second and third degree burns to about thirty percent of her body and had to be hospitalized for almost two months.

Immediately following the accident, we here at Edge met briefly to discuss how we could move forward. After much deliberation, we had a plan that would keep the brewery afloat while our brewer was being treated for these injuries. It was a meeting that nobody wants to have and we here at Edge hope to never have again. You go into the beer business thinking it’s going to offer you an opportunity to meet people, celebrate great beer and hopefully provide a product that people will love and celebrate with you. Many people forget that this is a manufacturing business and that accidents can and do happen. Edge Brewing Company now knows that reality all too well and will do everything in its power to make sure it doesn’t happen again.

Edge’s co-founder and president, Marcus Bezuhly – himself an accomplished homebrewer – took the reins and did a heck of a job filling in. He took control and showed great leadership in keeping Edge going.

The good news is that Kerry is back where she belongs; brewing beer at Edge. She has been working for the last three weeks and has already brought back favorites Imperial Red and Badunkamonk Belgian Triple. The brewery was missing a key ingredient when she went down all those weeks ago; now it is whole again.

Next time you come in for lunch, dinner or a quick beer, be sure to take a peek into the brewery to see Kerry hard at work once again. Her first brew when she came back, Edge Amber Ale, is on tap right now and tasting delicious. Her first original brew, Edge IPA, will soon be on draft and in bottles around the whole state. Join me in hoisting a glass to the Huntsmen Center Burn Unit, Kerry’s tremendous family, the Cole family and everyone who gave money or donated items to help our brewer get back to us today. Last but not least, hoist a glass to Kerry herself. Her toughness and resolve went beyond anybody’s expectations and without that our brewery wouldn’t be whole. Cheers!!!

Boise Beer Brewer Injured in Edge Brewing Accident

Kerry Thomas, the head brewer at Edge Brewing Co., was burned Friday after a kettle boiled over at the company’s Boise brewery.

Thomas suffered second-degree burns to 30 percent of her body, her husband, Cory Thomas, said in a phone interview Monday afternoon. The burns extended down her right arm from her shoulder down to her foot, along with other places on her torso, he said.

The Occupational Safety and Health Administration got “an immediate report to come out here,” said Steve Koonce, director of sales and marketing for Edge Brewing Co. The inspector interviewed staff and the assistant brewer and took some video, but Koonce does not know how long it will take for OSHA to release findings.

Thomas is being treated at the University of Utah Burn Center, where she was listed in good condition Monday afternoon, a hospital spokeswoman said.

“They’ll be looking and evaluating over the next 72 hours on which spots they’re going to go in and do surgery, unless they can use a skin graft. So they’re looking at surgery late this week,” said Thomas, who expects his wife to remain at the Utah hospital through the end of the month.

A GoFundMe page was established Monday for the brewer. In the first two hours it raised $1,100. It raised $13,136 by Wednesday afternoon.
