frequently asked questions

I heard you are moving. Why, Where, What?

We have moved our original Garden City Brewery & Taproom from 52nd & Chinden down to a much larger warehouse on 32nd & Clay. We ran out of room at the original space and wanted a bigger taproom & beer garden area.

The new brewery and taproom is located at 114 E 32nd St in Garden City.

Our Barbarian Downtown Beer Bar remains OPEN 7 days a week at 1022 W Main St. Boise.

Will you have food at the new location on 32nd & Clay?

Yes! We are partnering with Kismet Kitchen Food Truck to be our full time food option. Kismet Kitchen is a local, family run business (just like Barbarian) and will operate independently of Barbarian. Check out EatKismet for hours & menu.

Are kids and dogs allowed at the new location at 32nd & Clay?

Kids are allowed, but please remember we are Barbarians and our furniture & decor is not kid friendly. We are an adult drinking establishment.

Dogs are allowed on the patio only and must be on leash and well-behaved.

So, you'll have 3 taprooms now?

Nope. We are moving our original Garden City Brewery & Taproom down to 32nd & Clay and our Downtown Taproom will stay put. Idaho breweries are legally allowed two retail spaces (taprooms) for the entire state of Idaho.

Where can I find your beer around Boise?

You can find our beer in both of our Taprooms and, occasionally, we will be on draft at a few restaurants or bars in town. We are a small brewery operating on a 10 bbl brew system, so most days we just brew enough beer to keep our taprooms supplied. Luckily, both taprooms are open  seven days a week now!

Why are minors not allowed at the Downtown Taproom?

The Downtown Boise Taproom does not produce beer on-site, therefore, we are classified strictly as a “bar” according to the Idaho State Alcohol Beverage Control and are not allowed to let minors on the patio or in the Taproom.

Can I buy your beer online?

Unfortunately, not at this time. Our town elders won’t let us dance…or sell beer over the interwebs.

What's with all the wolf names?

We like wolves….But here’s the real story. The owners of Barbarian have a Siberian Husky named Conan and he was named Conan because it’s Gaelic for “Little Wolf.” The scientific name for hops is “humulus lupulus” and lupus is the diminutive of lupus (wolf). So we called the first IPA we made Little Wolf IPA and the wolf names started flowing with the rest of the IPAs: Big Bad Wolf, Beta Wolf, NeoWolf, Space Wolf, Wolf’s Bane, etc.

How do you sour beer?

We make two types of sours here at Barbarian: Kettle sours (quick turn around) and Barrel-aged Sours (months in the barrel!)

Kettle Sours – The wort is created and bacteria, lactobacillus, is added before it is brewed. The beer is then boiled, hence killing the bacteria, fermented, carbonated, kegged and ready for draft in 2-3 weeks.

Barrel Aged Sours – The wort is made like a normal CLEAN beer, transferred to the fermenter, where it ferments until the desired alcohol percentage is reached, then it is transferred to an oak barrel. The brettanomyces/lactobacillus are then added to the barrel for a SLOW, ORGANIC transformation of the beer. This process could take 3 months to 2 years depending on if the barrel is brand new to us or the desired outcome of the beer. Once James determines its readiness, fruit/spices may be added, then it will sit for another month or two and then kegged and bottled.

Well, our beers our a little higher in octane that most places here in town, so you should probably call an Uber or Lift if you plan on staying a while.
