Since first opening its doors in 2010, Mother Earth Brew Co.’s growth has continued at an extremely strong and steady rate averaging triple-digit increases each year.

In 2016, having nearly maximized production at its original San Diego area brewery, Mother Earth (MEBC) opened a new 40,000sf brewery capable of 100,000bbl production in Nampa ID, very near the Idaho state capital of Boise.

New Brewery Brings “Progress Through Beer” to Boise

Longtime Boise restaurateur Dave Krick is launching a new craft beer brewery named "Works Progress Administration," with an opening planned for late 2016.

Krick, who along with partner Jami Adams owns and operates the Bittercreek Alehouse and Red Feather Lounge restaurants in downtown Boise, has not selected a location for the new brewery, but is reviewing sites of 10,000+ square feet in and around downtown Boise and hopes to make an announcement soon.

"We have a growing craft beer industry in Boise with great breweries around the Treasure Valley," said Krick.  "We intend to complement this thriving scene through different styles of beers we will brew and a unique business model that embraces public benefit and 'Progress Through Beer.'"
