The maker of Blackberry Boom and other ciders will be moving to a bustling local food corridor in Downtown Boise.

Meriwether Cider will move into the current Portsche's Jewelry Boutique building adjacent to Freak Alley at Bannock St. & 9th St.

The new cider house will feature 20 taps - with its own creations on tap, as well as ciders from other providers around the region.  It will also have 30-40 bottle options to take home or enjoy in the cider house.

“We want to highlight the diversity and rich cider culture both in the USA and around the world. We hope to provide Boise with a well-rounded cider education through the cider house concept,” says Kate Leadbetter one of the owners and founders of Meriwether Cider.

A new indoor/outdoor bartop is planned similar to one featured across the street at 10 Barrel, plus a patio and an upstairs event room.

Meriwether will join Coiled Winery on the Bannock St. corridor, both offering locally-crafted alcoholic beverages.

Renovations are set to start in March.

Meriwether currently has a facility with a small tasting room in Garden City.

As BoiseDev was the first to report, Portsche's is set to move to another location Downtown
