With Boise’s growing reputation for thriving microbreweries and a nearby wine country reminiscent of Napa Valley, local wines and beers are among the most popular treasures purchased by visitors. To share the area’s flavors with friends and family back home, consider the hoppy IPAs popular among locals or a huckleberry wine featuring the state fruit. Flying home? That’s not a problem because most local vendors offer padded pouches to protect glass bottles in transit or deals on shipping. If you’d rather not travel with liquids, you might consider other keepsakes from these producers, such as logoed shirts or glasses.
