We opened on 11/11/11 to a standing room only local crowd. The idea to open the brewery was born from two locals who decided to make a change from a lack of good local beer. We aim to educate the unguided and be a place for beer geeks and connoisseurs alike.

Paul was an avid homebrewer for over 6 years before becoming pro. A beer guy who doesn’t discriminate against any style, his favorite is usually what is seasonal or a barleywine.
Kevin Jones – Business Manager
Kevin is all about the culture behind craft beer and brings an engineering mindset to Sawtooth. He prefers stouts, darker beers and sours but loves trying anything new.
