Sip Idaho is Idaho's only public all-liquor tasting event. Every summer, during Idaho Spirits Month, we gather the best distilleries from Idaho and across the globe, to come to our great state and represent their brands, showing you all about their newest 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.
Join us and other fellow liquor 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.
This year, we are excited to introduce Saturday daytime classes to help you learn, grow your skills, and enjoy liquor in a completely unique setting!
There are 2 classes in the afternoon that begin prior to the main tasting event.
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.
Unfortunately, no kids are 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 out in the great state of Idaho!
The hotel has plenty of parking available for our event guests. Feel free to park in the front -or- back of the hotel.
Please drink responsibly! Ride-sharing and taxis are widely available in town. If you are questioning whether or not you should drive, make the wiser decision and get a cab.
The hotel is also offering our event guests a special block of rooms at a discounted price, so get a room at the Riverside Hotel and enjoy our Sip + Stay package!
Unfortunately, no refunds are available. Tickets are transferable, however! 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, due to health and food regulations. As much as we love them, please leave them at home, where they are safe!
Appetizers will be available inside the event venue and are included in your ticket cost. The hotel is catering the event to help us all stay in tip-top shape throughout the evening.
Yes! Sip + Stay! The hotel is blocking off a series of discounted rooms for our guests and vendors if you wish to stay the night. So have a great time, make a date night out of it, and enjoy a nice brunch in the morning. You can book directly with the Riverside Hotel by calling and asking for the "Sip Idaho" discount at 208-343-1871. Please note: Discounted rooms have SOLD OUT for Sip Idaho 2022. We recommend making earlier reservations next year, in order to take advantage of the discount.
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. See you there! Cheers!!
"No matter what you do or what you drink,
share it with a friend."
