NAMPA — There’s a new craft brewery in town, and it could end up being the largest in Idaho.
San Diego, California-based Mother Earth Brew Co. will open its tasting room doors for business by Oct. 1, possibly as early as Sept. 24. It is now one of two commercial producers of beer in Nampa.
“When it came to think about where to expand from California, it was an easy choice,” said Daniel Love, founder and CEO of Mother Earth Brew Co.
Love started traveling to Boise as part of his job with Sprint Nextel in the early 2000s and fell in love with the area. His passion for hobby brewing developed into a family-run business in 2008. Mother Earth distributes craft beer to eight states and six countries, and hopes to expand further into the Northwest and eastward with its Nampa facility, located in the Interstate 84 Industrial Park at 1428 Madison Ave.
