How it All Works

The goal is to make this an affordable, fun event for everyone.

Drinking Beer

You’ll need to purchase a taster glass as part of a bundle or individually. I.D. is required upon entrance, and you’ll receive a wristband. Please drink responsibly and sober up before you drive home, or arrange for a designated driver or a ride service. 

VIP Tickets and Packages

There are limited VIP tickets and seating. This included a dedicated seating area and some surprise specials, plus VIP guests get 10% off all Boise Books and Brews Merchandise.

Buying Books

Book tokens are available individually or as a part of bundles. Each book will be priced by the author, most between 2 and 3 tokens.

Some authors will also have books and merchandise you can purchase using your credit or debit card, or even cash. Check with individual authors for pricing.

BBB and Band Merchandise

The bands and the Boise Books and Brews team will have various merchandise for sale. Most will be able to take either cash or credit or debit cards.
