Out of Bounds Brewing Company—a fairly new business surprising both newbies and regulars with some of the best craft-brewed beers for the buck—is located, literally, out of bounds. Squeezed in between warehouse buildings, it’s the perfect getaway for after-work customers. Walking in, I immediately felt the warm, welcoming vibe, which only multiplied after trying their Tasting Flight. For $20, I received an assortment of 12 beers laid upon a circular wooden tablet. Like the hands of a clock, I rotated my way around and found some of the most distinctive tastes of beer. I especially enjoyed the Delta Breeze Mild Cream Ale (4.8 percent), which didn’t have an overwhelming sense of cream, but rather a delightful, mild aftertaste. The Granite Chief Stout and the Oak Aged Stout (both 6.8 percent) provided a malty flavor that partnered nicely with the perfect supply of hops! The Rusted Butte Ale (5.8 percent) however, is the favorite amongst beer-drinking visitors. It gives a refreshing blend of hops mixed with a light rusted flavoring, making it hard not to enjoy. Whether you’re in to IPAs or ales, Out of Bounds is an up-and-coming business worth tasting for yourself.
