Interestingly enough, according to mariah95.com, in 1888, there were 33 different Breweries in the State of Idaho ... that was the most breweries at one time prior to prohibition.
Prohibition started nationally in 1919, but Idaho began in 1916 ... so there were no 'legal' brew pubs in Idaho from 1916 to 1934. Bummer, huh? The Gem State was without any breweries until Tim Batt started the Snake River Brewery in 1984.
However, as of Feb. 2020, the number has risen to 74 – with lots more coming! (read more about Idaho Breweries here http://mariah95.com/BEER/IdahoBreweries.htm
In 2018, Idaho produced 16.2 million pounds of hops, according to NASS, that's up 16 percent from 14 million pounds the prior year. That increase enabled Idaho to solidify its spot as the nation's No. 2 hop producing state, ahead of Oregon and behind Washington.
