I visited this brewery on a family vacation to Montana. It's in an interesting building near the railroad tracks. It is a long narrow spot with brick walls and wood floors. Then food menu is mostly pub fare, they have pizza, soup and salads, sandwiches and wraps, burritos and some vegan and vegetarian choices that my daughters really liked. We had a meal and everyone liked the food. I had a beer sampler and this time I did not write a review of every beer i tried, but the beers were all good. The Ligertown Lager was clean and crisp with a good flavor and my Older daughter and I liked the Dirty Drifter APA. Visited on July 18, 2016

I was passing through the area last spring for work and found myself in Pocatello for the night. I searched Portneuf out and was very pleased. friendly service (owner greeting patrons), really good food (I had a pizza), and an excellent selection of craft beers that were all true to style. the atmosphere was local but warm and inviting. If you find your self in the area I suggest you stop on by and have a pint or two...

This is a regular stop of mine in Pocatello, though not just because it's the only brew pub in town. This has been a growing business with a very bright future I hope.

The beer is the most characteristic thing about this place because it could be very good, BUT it lately has been consistently good with the addition of a distinct, noticeable off taste - an astringent or sour taste. It tastes to me like excess sanitizer... and it's in all the beers and has been for some time (probably since the fall '08). That weird taste was not around in the summer of '08.

I'm not sure why this is the case, the brewers should know if their beers are getting contaminated... but there it is. It's very noticeable in their lagers, wheat and pale ales. Thankfully it is overpowered in the darker, fuller beers. The Midnight Satin Stout was, and still is, very good. It's smooth body and bold roasted taste wipe out the house off-taste. The porter is also very good.

The Grog would be a wonderfully unusual beer (too malty and not hoppy enough to be an IPA, but not malty enough to be a barelywine). Except it has that nagging weird taste, too. I hope the crew gets it figured out and fixes the situation because that astringent taste does a great disservice to some rather good beer!

The atmosphere is nicer than you'd except for a modernized warehouse. It is cleaner and more inviting that many places I've been in.

The service there is great! Fun, energetic people are serving that really seem to care about the business and the customer's experience.

I've eaten their twice. The first time I tried their Jambalaya and it was fantastic. The second time I had their mini pizza and garlic bread. The garlic bread was great, but the pizza was pretty dissapointing. It was 90% dough and that wasn't cooked all the way. My travelling companions had burritos which looked very appetizing.

Here's to hoping their beers get back to where they were a year ago!

Heard about the place a few months ago and decided to find it when passing through. Not too hard to find from I-15. Nice atmosphere, restaurant was busy. The Grog IPA was the hoppiest that I have had lately - very good. The Midnight Satin was very smooth and flavorful. The hef was mellow. Took a growler of the Twisted Stick amber...pretty mild after the IPA. I heard that the owner had been brewing locally for quite a few years. Used to stop in Pocatello just for wings now I've got a new stop for wings AND Beer.

Easy to find and if you get lost, just call the brewery and they will get you there. The beer was aweson I took several people in our hunting party that had never been to a micro brewery. They had 2 glasses of the Rust Bucket Red. I had two glasses of the Portneuf Porter. A friend had a glass of the Sunshine Pale Ale and another glass of the Belligerent Ass Nut Brown Ale .......so between the 4 of us we had a good sampling of their beer. All the beer was very good. I didne hear one compalint. we all ordered the Bavarian sandwich and it was served hot and was very good. Cabbage, garlic, and ground meat were in a warm roll. The service was good and polite. I would recommend the Portneuf Valley Brewery to anyone wanting good food and a good glass of beer.
