Treefort Music Fest has announced the release of House Show, a new limited-edition beer made by Mother Earth Brew Co. in Nampa, Idaho. Originally set to debut as “Fresh AF” and live canned at Alefort 2020, House Show has been canned and entitled House Show, because there ain’t no party like a house show… even if you’re the only one there. All proceeds from House Show sales will support the local live music ecosystem via the new Treefort Live Music Relief fund.
Sold in a 4-pack of 16oz cans, House Show will be available for purchase in the coming days at both Boise Co-op locations and Bittercreek Alehouse, with limited quantity available. House Show is a ridiculously smooth unfiltered IPA coming in at just 25 IBUs, and brewed with a dash of lactose in the vein of a Northeast-style hazy. Though paying respects to its hazy cohorts in smoothness and lower bitterness, the beer drinks much differently, finishing clean rather than murky. House Show showcases the fruity hop characteristics of El Dorado, Mosaic, Amarillo, and Cashmere.
The Treefort Live Music Relief fund is the Fest’s latest move to support local artists. It aims to alleviate financial hardship for people working in the local live music industry by offering support to Boise-based artists, musicians, audio and lighting engineers, techs, tour managers, production managers and others who work in the live music industry.
“Live music and the experience industry around it brings so much value to our community here in Boise and beyond,” said Eric Gilbert, festival director. “We hope the Live Music Relief Fund will help foster a means for artists to keep creating and support the resiliency of our live music ecosystem, including venues, industry workers, techs, and other related infrastructure.”
