Headed to MFS soon, planning to buy beer in Hailey. What are good canned microbeers available in that neck of the woods?

Talked to Albertson's beverage manager in Hailey, and she mentioned Slanted Rock, Outlaw, Payette, and Good Life- all new to me.

Thoughts?

Look no further than Mutton Buster Brown Ale | Beers | Payette Brewing Co. .... unless you are one of those cretins who like IPAs.

The Payette brand of beer out of Boise tends to be a solid pick. The Outlaw IPA is popular, the North Fork Lager isn't bad at all, but I love the Rodeo Rye Pale Ale.

Also Sockeye Brewery had a good IPA in a red can called Dagger Falls.

The brand Crooked Fence is another solid bet.

dagger falls ipa is one of my favorite beers in a can.. the payette brewing options are also good, I usually go with mutton buster..... I actually saw both being sold in 12 packs in stanley... Only seen them in six packs here in salmon.. I may have to go up to montana and smuggle back some doublehaul and coldsmoke before my middlefork... mmmm beer..

Albertsons is the most expensive place to buy beer in the valley. On the left when you leave Bellevue is the Valley Market. $1 t0 $2 less per six pack.

208-788-7788 to at least compare. When I would do a major shop there sometimes they will give 10% off the whole order but needs to be set up ahead of time with a manager.

Good Life is out of Bend. They brew and can both Descender IPA and Sweet As Pacific Ale. Both are solid choices, imho.

If you are an IPA fan Good Life Descender IPA is good. The Best canned IPA I have consumed is 21st Amendment Brew Free or Die IPA. No beer expert but I prefer canned beer and the 21st is good. Not cheap but good....

2nd for the mutton buster. Also the crooked fence - picket porter. Pick up some 44 North Huckleberry vodka (made in Rigby Idaho) and Krabbies ginger beers for moscow mules too. Thank me later, it's a damn fine sunshine drink. If you pass through Idaho Falls, stop at the Celt, an irish pub on the corner in downtown.

Payette or crooked fence can't go wrong, I prefer their pales over their IPAs. Best local IPA is Slanted Rock Initial Point, has more malty flavor, kinda like the Brew Free or Die.
