That flagship Boise taproom we told you about? Here’s what Mother Earth has planned

In February, BoiseDev broke news of a new flagship taproom for an unnamed brewery in Downtown Boise. At the time, a final lease hadn’t yet been signed, so we held you in a little suspense on which brewery would bring its products to the space.

It’s Mother Earth.

Daniel Love with Mother Earth said they signed that least yesterday on the property at 3rd St. and Broad St. downtown.

The new spot will include indoor seating for 99 beer-drinking patrons, as well as other improvements to the warehouse-style space. Parking would see changes, with a reduction in spaces to make way for a large outdoor seating area. The project’s developer asked the City of Boise for a variance to allow for a parking reduction.

Summer time?

They hope to open this summer.

“We’re shooting for sometime in August,” Love told BoiseDev. “We will be holding a groundbreaker event in April probably near the end of the month.”

Mother Earth launched in California in 2010 and later expanded to Nampa. The Nampa location includes a 40,000 square foot production facility that helps Mother Earth produce and distribute its products across the region and Internationally.

Lone Cone remains in the building for now, but Love said they will leave by April 15th.

It’s one of two beer destinations planned for expansion along Grove St. Down the street, Boise Brewing will see a large expansion of its brewing facility and taproom later this year.
