The Barbarian Way

“Why the f**k not?”

 That’s our motto around here. Ancient barbarians never bothered with pesky concepts like rules or limits, and neither do we. If we (or our customers) come up with a completely bonkers idea, we’re all in.

 The coolest part of our brewery is that we can do whatever we want. All it takes are a few untamed minds, a little elbow grease … and maybe a few pints of beer. When you give civilization the finger, true innovation happens. Barbarian’s delicious, complex, artisan ales and lagers are a godless mashup of old world traditions and new world flavors.

~ TARTA DE QUESO ~ Dessert Berliner Weisse made in collaboration with @basquelandbrew from San Sebastián, Spain. Inspired by the Basque style cheesecake, Tarta de Queso, this sour beer was made with real cheesecake bites, milk sugar, Madagascar vanilla beans and 440lbs of raspberries. Available on draft and in to-go cans at both Barbarian locations!

~ A note from @basquelandbrew ~
We are extremely excited to have the opportunity to collaborate with Barbarian Brewing. We always approach collaborations from the perspective of what can we contribute, what can we learn, and what fun can we have. Barbarian provided us a chance to check all of these boxes. First, they are known for making interesting styles and delicious beer. Second, they are always open to push the envelope so we’re going to learn something. And, lastly, some fun was had in the making of this beer.

The icing on this cake (spoiler alert) is that Barbarian is located in the biggest Basque-town in the United States. ¡Aupa Boise! Knowing that Boise is home to nearly 15,000 citizens who identity as Basque, we wanted to make a Basque-inspired beer to say Kaixo Boise! Hello from San Sebastián.

In the recipe concept phase we agreed to use one of the most emblematic dishes of the Basque kitchen for inspiration. This is the tarta de queso aka cheesecake with the classic garnish of raspberries. We knew this combo of rich and savoury, and tart and fruity will come together nicely in a beer. Our friends at Barbarian Brewing made our dreams come true! Thanks to them for being open to this idea and for getting wild with a this flavor combination hardly ever seen in beer.
¡Mil Esker!
