Bittercreek is a consistent favorite among locals for many reasons. The beer selections include nearly 40 taps from brewers in Idaho, Washington, Montana, Colorado, Oregon and California, and then there is the bottled beer list, which includes regional and international beers and reads for pages. If malted hops and barley isn’t your thing, they also offer a wide range of wines with a highlight on local wine makers and a full bar of spirits.

If you’ve come in for more than just a beverage, the menu is sure to please. A few of the highlights include the ducktine (poutine with duck), halloumi tacos, the kale ceasar salad and the huntsman burger. Come hungry; portions are generous without being over the top.

Bittercreek works hard to keep it as local as possible (excluding international beers, of course). Ingredients in their food are sourced locally and the beer and wine menu includes a notation beside each offering indicating how far that beverage had to travel to get there. They also have their very own worms. Food scraps are thrown into two large compost bins, home to thousands of red wigglers in the basement below the restaurant to be made into delicious, nutritious dirt.
