Sip Idaho is Idaho's only public liquor tasting event. Every summer, we gather the best and most delicious distilleries from Idaho and across the United States to come to Boise and represent their brands, showing you all about their greatest and upcoming products.
All evening from 5:00-7:30PM, Sip Idaho will be open to the public for you to taste and enjoy. Appetizers are included with your ticket cost. 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 other 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 world, 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, so please be prepared to show your i.d.
Let's be honest, this is your chance for a date night out without the kiddos. Get a babysitter and enjoy a fun time in downtown Boise!
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 or not 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.
Sip Idaho is held exclusively indoors this year, to keep you out of the heat, and the venue does not allow our furry friends at the event. As much as we love them, please leave them at home.
Appetizers will be available from the Hilton Garden Inn and are included in your ticket cost. 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 vendors if you 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 with the Hilton 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, the City of Boise requires that you are a certified bartender.
If you would like to inquire about opportunities, please send us a message below!
