Yesterday I saw on the old Twitter that Whole Foods was having a special Payette night. Buy a pint get a free pint glass. I am always a fan of legally obtaining pint glasses so I convinced a friend to head over.

There were lots of Payette options available and I decided to go the route of the Bandito IPA, allegedly brewed exclusively for Whole Foods. This beer was a deliciously hoppy beer that packed a 6.4% ABV and because of that I was fortunate that I paced myself because I easily could have been knocked out cold.

While not sure of everything in it, this beer has a beautiful golden-orange color and was full of hops. The bartender at the River Room in Whole Foods said that it had been brewed with Agave (which would explain the higher ABV) and Tequilla chips. This beer had a smooth flavor with just the right amount of hops. As I said before, because of the ABV this beer could be a little dangerous if you don’t pace yourself. It is definitely worth a try if you are in Boise and visiting the River Room at Whole Foods.
