You can’t really call it a happy hour at Bonfire Brewing in Eagle. The business is basically happy most of the day.

“I think that one of the things that people like so much is we have happy hour every day from opening until 7 p.m.,” said Amanda Jessen, one of the business founders. “When people ask if it is happy hour, I ask if they are happy and tell them ‘Then it is happy hour.’”

When Bonfire first launched, it started daily business at 4 p.m. But the tap room has since extended its hours and the happiness begins at noon daily with $1 off pints.

But the beer special is just one of the reasons locals love happy hour at Bonfire. They also cited the tap room’s great atmosphere and patio where the business’ motto — Gather ‘round — is the theme.

“We have a bonfire outside so people really can gather ‘round,” Jessen said. “Sharing a pint with good friends on a nice day. There is just nothing better than that.”
