BOISE, Idaho — April marks Idaho Craft Beer Month, but because of the COVID-19 pandemic, many signature events had to be postponed, canceled, or head to the virtual platform. One of those--Pints Up Idaho--was celebrated virtually in April and is returning this weekend.

Pints Up Idaho acts like a typical Pint Night at your favorite local brewery, but instead of one place, it's a statewide pint celebration. This year's Pints Up Idaho will feature plenty of opportunities for you to earn a special glass celebrating the annual event.

From August 16 to 30, more than 20 participating locations will give away a limited edition, commemorative glass with beer purchase. The breweries are starting the giveaways on different days during the promotional period and will have different purchase requirements.

This year's glass features a nod to the agricultural significance the State of Idaho has for the beer industry. The image shows a farmer in an Idaho barley field, highlighting a partnership with the Idaho Barley Commission and the importance of agriculture in Idaho and the state's beer industry.

To take part, there's no need to sign up. Just head to any of the breweries on the list found here or pick up some beer-to-go and grab your free glass.
