Sip Idaho is Idaho's only official liquor tasting event. Every summer, we get the best and most delicious distilleries from Idaho and across the United States to come to Boise to represent their brands and show you all about their best and upcoming products.
All evening from 5:00-7:30PM, Sip Idaho will be open to the public for you to taste and chat. Appetizers will also be available, catered with the hotel. Learn some cool new mixology tricks, try out some fancy and ambitious cocktails, all while enjoying a classic Idaho summer in Downtown Boise.
Join us and hundreds of fellow enthusiasts for a night of tasting, fun merchandise, swag, live music, and just having a blast with the minds and geniuses behind your favorite spirits.
Probably the toughest (but best) choice you'll make all summer. Choose wisely.
The distilleries you've always wanted to tour, the people you've always wanted to meet, and the spirits your heart has always craved, all in one place. This is our current list of vendors registered for the event. They come from all over the country to bring you their finest spirits.
No kids allowed! Not even babies. Here in Idaho, we take liquor laws very seriously and nobody under 21 will be given entry.
But let's be honest, this is your chance for a date night without the kiddos. Get a babysitter and enjoy a fun night out downtown!
Street parking downtown is normally free after 5:00pm on Saturdays! So you can park on the streets or in any of the large parking garages nearby. Park BOI actually has a garage right there at the hotel!
Please drink responsibly! Ride-sharing and taxis are widely available downtown. If you are questioning whether you should drive, make the wiser decision and get a cab.
Unfortunately, no refunds are available. The tickets are transferable, though. So if for some reason you've purchased a ticket and can't make it, tickets also make great birthday gifts.
Idaho liquor laws forbid us from allowing pets at the event. As much as we love our furry and feathered friends, please leave them at home.
Appetizers will be widely available from Hilton Garden Inn. They are catering the event to help us all stay in tip-top shape throughout the evening.
Yes! Sip and stay! The hotel is actually blocking off a series of rooms for guests and sponsors if they wish to stay the night. So have a great time, make a date out of it, and enjoy a nice downtown brunch in the morning. You can book directly here.
Yes. Tickets are per person only. So, as much as you refer to your partner as your "other half" you are two complete humans according to us. You get to buy two complete tickets.
"No matter what you do or what you drink,
share it with a friend."
With so many distillers and vendors coming in for the event, we have a few opportunities for volunteer staff and paid bartenders. For all applicants that would like to help pour, you will need to be a certified bartender.
