Craft Beer Tasting on the Lower Salmon River 4 Days
Chef Eric Conte of Bittercreek Ale House Boise, ID
Chef Eric Conte is Idaho raised and Idaho proud. He focuses on using local ingredients and products of this amazing region. Stylistically, the food Chef Eric prepares is comforting and familiar, while still exploring new techniques and flavors that will wow his guests. Striving for perfection rather than novelty, he is always at work keeping the menu rotating with the seasons, and interfacing with farmers and purveyors throughout the year to ensure quality ingredients are used in all his menus, and venues.
The name Payette has since become synonymous with the adventurous spirit that pervades Idaho’s year-round outdoor lifestyle. Payette Brewing Co based in Boise, ID will be providing their choice, canned, craft beers (they created the first craft beer cans from the Gem State), sharing their passion to “venture down the road less traveled to make the best beer in the west.”
The Lower Salmon River exhibits a side of Idaho seldom seen by most visitors. Distinctive from the forests and mountains that make up much of Idaho’s wilderness, this river runs through the warmer, drier canyon country of the Seven Devils. Not confined to just one river canyon, the Lower Salmon actually flows through four separate gorges—Green, Cougar, Snow Hole, and Blue canyons—interspersed with sprawling, wide-open vistas. With some of the biggest and most beautiful white sand beaches of any western river, the Lower Salmon is the perfect destination for water-based fun in the sun. Warm weather, easy-going whitewater, and lots of wildlife make this a great trip!
