Established in 2017, Destination:Beer is a celebration of Idaho craft beer in the picturesque McCall, ID. Two dozen Idaho breweries serve more than fifty beers for the occasion. Some rare, some barrel-aged, and something for everyone. We’re proud to emphasize locally sourced ingredients for delectable appetizers (included with admission). This event has sold out many weeks in advance since its inception and we expect 2024 to be no different.
Destination:Beer is rain, snow, or shine so come prepared! We highly recommend warm, winter footwear and layers. Beer and food will be in/under tents with heaters but it is February in Idaho so dress warmly!
Additional details to be announced including participating breweries, food options, and the-activity-formerly-known-as-“The Bottle Pull”.
Destination:Beer is the perfect combination for a winter getaway – an unique beer event in an Idaho mountain town. We hope you’ll join us for one or both days to explore Idaho beer and food.
The event is set alongside Payette lake at the Ludwig Terrace of the Ponderosa Center. Destination: Beer is under large, heated tents complete with twinkle lights, linens, and festive decor. Not just your average beer fest in a parking lot.

Friday evening is a slightly smaller event than Saturday. We anticipate twenty breweries serving more than forty craft beers alongside upscale pub-style appetizers. Among the barrel-aged and limited release beers, enjoy the likes of elk sliders and a chili bar with all the fixings.

Saturday is going to be a great day filled with delicious food and drinks. Two dozen breweries plus an Idaho winery will serve an impressive fifty plus beers ranging from imperial stouts to delicate lagers. The menu includes a variety of options such as bison meatballs, mac and cheese bar, and smoked salmon. We’ve added a VIP option where the holders will enjoy some premium perks. They will be admitted one hour earlier than the general attendees, with very limited attendance, giving them a chance to experience the event with exclusivity. Additionally, the VIPs will have the first access to a DB exclusive beer.
