Take a Spirited Adventure in Teton Valley

Toasting Highpoint Cider at the Highpoint Cider Tap Room in Eastern Idaho's, Victor Idaho.

Teton Valley, Idaho, is brewing with activity … especially when it comes to good craft beer, the best in vodka and full-bodied whiskey. Join us as we embark on a tasting tour, discovering the best of Teton Valley's breweries, taphouses, and distilleries. 

Hint: We recommend you take a few days to visit these establishments and enjoy the many beverages—always drink responsibly.


Grand Teton Brewing Company

Located at the base of Teton Pass, Grand Teton Brewing Company is the original brewery of Teton Valley , which has been creating handcrafted beers since 1988. The facility encompasses an expansive 11,000 square feet, housing production and packaging facilities, walk-in cold storage, and the famous Grand Teton Brewing Pub, a tasting room, and a retail shop.

When the weather is warm, gather on the Pub’s front lawn to sip your suds, play some cornhole or simply soak up the sun with glass in hand. This is a favorite hangout! From extra strong brews like XX Bitch Creek to the lighter Sweetgrass American Pale Ale, there is something for everyone (over 21, of course) to enjoy.

Guidepost Brewing Company

Guidepost Brewing Company is Teton Valley’s newest establishment and a rising star in Teton Valley's craft beverage scene. Located in Victor, Idaho, Guidepost Brewing is dedicated to pushing the boundaries of flavor and creativity. The taproom boasts a wide array of brews, from the Storm Watch Porter to the pale yet pleasantly hoppy Fox Creek Kolsch. For wine drinkers, you won’t be disappointed! The menu is vast and flavorful.

Beer and wine are not the only stars in this establishment. Featuring a full menu (we recommend the housemade meatballs), there is no better place to drink and dine in Victor. But wait! There’s more. Guidepost is in a chic warehouse with glass garage doors that open when the weather is warm so guests can enjoy indoor and outdoor seating. Play cornhole over a frosty pint, and be sure to check the weekly schedule of events. There is always something going on at Guidepost, from line dance and salsa lessons, yoga & beer sessions, German night, and even a beer-inspired book club! The venue is also available for private events.

Refuge Taphouse

At the corner of Dogwood and Main in Victor, Refuge Taphouse is a cozy place to enjoy beer and wine after work. You won’t find this establishment on social media; the quality of the product served has rapidly spread through Teton Valley via word of mouth. The beers on the board are eclectic and ever-changing, but you will surely see Valley favorites from nearby Guidepost Brewing and Driggs’ Citizen 33. 

The atmosphere is intimate, with small tabled seating, plenty of stools at the bar, and on warmer evenings, great outdoor space to sip and people-watch. There is no kitchen, so don’t expect a meal, but hungry patrons can purchase a bag of gourmet chips at the bar or order a pizza from Pinky G’s for pickup just across the street. 

Also, get ready for Ladies’ Nights, which are always wild. Don’t be surprised if you leave the Taphouse covered in glitter, wearing a feather boa, and having danced a few songs on the bar!

Highpoint Cider

Co-founded by brothers Andrew and Alex Perez, Highpoint Cider boasts a welcoming, laid-back atmosphere with ample open seating, both indoors and out. Alongside their signature hard ciders, the taproom offers a selection of local beers and a thoughtfully curated wine list, complementing the in-house cider offerings. Daily cider house tours provide visitors with insight into the cider-making process.

With no formal fermentation training, the brothers experimented to develop their core cider lineup, comprising Transplant, Spur, and Tram-line. Focused on crafting accessible, low-sugar ciders bursting with flavor, Highpoint Cider continues to innovate with new variations and seasonal releases. 

Highpoint is more than a cider house. It has quickly become a popular local hangout, thanks to its super satisfying product and its weekly lineup of events. Trivia nights, Bingo, Valley Voices, Stand-up comics, and a Streetfood Food Truck make sipping cider a great way to spend an evening under the Tetons.
