The Sawtooth Brewery Story
Sawtooth Brewery, the Tap Room and the Public House continue to evolve as it expands, grows and makes its mark on the Wood River Valley. The grand opening of Sawtooth brewery happened 11/11/11 in a small space in the Clarion Hotel in Ketchum, where Kevin Jones and Paul Holle had a vision for a place that people could go for tasty craft beer after a long day of skiing or biking. That vision has come to fruition. They have built on their success to now running two restaurants; the Public House in Ketchum and the Tap Room in Hailey. They also have moved the brewery to their Hailey location where they now produce over 1000 barrels of craft beer per year and sell their beer all over Idaho.
Kevin and Paul originally came to meet through a mutual friend at the re-opening of Whiskey Jack’s and quickly realized that they had a similar vision for starting a brewery in the Sun Valley area. After a few meetings and discussion, they began talks of opening their brewery. They agreed that Sun Valley didn’t have as robust of a craft beer culture and wanted to create one. With Paul’s extensive home brewing experience and Kevin’s knack for business, they began working towards their goal in a barn in Elkhorn.
