Tasting & Tap Rooms

taste

Garden City boasts an impressive selection of wineries and breweries, and on any given day you can sample their wares and discover what the buzz is about. Use our guide to taste your way through the wineries, cideries, and breweries that call Garden City home.

Start with a Bloody Mary brunch

Caffe Luciano’s has earned a devoted following for its breakfast paninos — savory sandwiches packed with ingredients like prosciutto, eggs, mozzarella, and basil aioli — but get into the spirit of your adventure with one of their Bloody Marys. You’ll be primed for the day of indulgence that lies ahead.

Ease into it with cider

Pace yourself! Meriwether Cider is a great place to begin your taproom adventure after your boozy brunch. If you tend to think of alcoholic cider as sickly sweet or one-note, Meriwether’s brews are bound to change your mind. Try the crisp Foothills Semi-Dry, the flavor-packed Ginger Root, or one of the seasonal selections to get your footing.

Sip Syrah at Cinder

Any time is a good time for rosé, especially Cinder’s Dry Syrah Rosé. Make like a local and stop in for a tasting at Cinder’s industrial-chic tasting room — if you’re lucky, you might even get an impromptu tour of the winemaking facilities in the back! Cinder’s wines are made from Snake River Valley grapes and are a prime example of the potential of Idaho’s up-and-coming wine scene. Start sipping now and you’ll have bragging rights when the rest of the world discovers these treasures.

Drink like a Barbarian

Barbarian Brewing’s roots go back — way back — to the ancient Europeans who pioneered the sour beers that have become a phenomenon today. Barbarian uses Old World-style methods to create fresh, new flavors like Odin’s Table Bier, Cry of the Blackbirds, and The Warg. Barbarian has a huge, experimental beer list, so ask about limited-edition beers that you won’t find anywhere else. Barbarian’s pioneering style and willingness to try new flavors makes each trip to their taproom unique.

 

Finish strong

You’re bound to be ravenous by the end of your tour, so why not stop in at a classic steakhouse? The Stagecoach has been an institution since the 1950s, and its bar is one of the busiest locations in all of Garden City. Grab a cozy leather booth and sip on one of the Stagecoach’s legendary martinis or Manhattans. Order a snack of their signature bar prawns to truly round out the experience.

Of course, there’s much more to discover! Find a full list of Garden City’s craft breweries and wineries.
