Roll out the red carpet — but be aware that it’s about to get beer-soaked.

After what felt like an eternity to craft-beer enthusiasts, Powderhaus Brewing Co. will debut Friday, Nov. 6.

The hard-to-miss brewery at 9719 W. Chinden Blvd. in Garden City will open its tap room at 3 p.m. and pour beer until close, whenever that winds up being. After that, Powderhaus will be open noon to 10 p.m. Saturday and noon to 7 p.m. Sunday.

4 flagship beersFirst Turns IPA, Hinterlander Robust Porter, Dead Fall Ale and Prusik Pilsner

Initially announced in 2013, Powderhaus has taken two years to construct an 8,000-square-foot facility.

The Idaho Statesman’s Treasure magazine recently provided insight about the brewery:

Owners Mark and Lisa Schmidt made their son Tyler’s dreams come true when they decided to invest in a brewery. Tyler Schmidt and Tyson Cardon, both beer geeks and avid skiers, will run the day-to-day operations at the brewery, which draws inspiration from the mountains that surround us.

Head brewer Tyler Evans — formerly of Edge Brewing Co. — plans to offer seasonal brews to augment Powderhaus’ regular rotation.

Powderhaus Brewing does not include a restaurant. But Burgerlicious food truck will be on site from 5 to 8 p.m. Friday.
