Mother Earth Set to Begin Construction on Nampa Brewery

Mother Earth Brew Co. intends to take possession of the former Syngenta Seed building in Nampa on Feb. 1 with hopes to be brewing beer by June. Mother Earth beer, now brewed near San Diego, became available in stores across Idaho in late October. Sixteen Albertsons stores are about to start carrying the brand, Mother Earth owner Daniel Love said.

So far, he said, the Boo Koo IPA and Sin Tax Peanut Butter Stout are his best sellers in Idaho. Mother Earth will be the largest craft beer brewer in Idaho if it meets Love’s projection of 22,000 barrels in the first year in Nampa. Love believes he will produce 10,000 to 15,000 barrels by the end of 2016.
