To describe our tasting room, we should first define the Swedish word, “gemytlig.”
Gemytlig: derived from the German word Gemutlichkeit – a situation that induces cheerful mood; peace of mind; with connotation of belonging and social acceptance; coziness and unhurried atmosphere.
To us, gemytlig means coziness, togetherness, and joviality. Our tasting room provides an inviting atmosphere of gemytlig, featuring a space of relaxation where friends, families, and even dogs can get together to share an experience.
It is designed with the essence of Mad Swede in mind, featuring a fun, viking-themed mural with a little bit of Boise flair, comfortable seating, and a customized bartop, all reflecting both the warmth and adventurous nature of our beer. We are especially proud of the tasting room because it has been largely constructed by the Mad Swede crew. We are dedicated to working hard to produce a quality product, and that philosophy extends to our tasting room.
Also available in the tasting room are brewhouse tours, growler fills, and Mad Swede swag.
