Paul Holle and Kevin Jones are the masterminds and brewers behind Sawtooth Brewery, Ketchum’s only local brewery. This is their third season at the market and they usually have three beers to choose from. With Dave Custer pouring, swing on by his stand and try one to quench your thirst.

The Sawtooth Brewery has a place on Main Street and 8th in Ketchum where there are usually at least eight of their awesome varieties on tap, plus a guest tap to choose from, along with great pub food. They offer a super-friendly environment, rotate their tap seasonally, and have now opened a tap room on River Street in Hailey where they brew their beer.
