Our Beer

What kind of beer would a unicorn drink?

If a donut and a stout had a baby, what would it taste like? Is edible glitter a thing? Those are the kind of questions that come up when we’re crafting our beers. And apparently, we’re not the only ones who think a little outside the barrel. Since we staged our invasion in 2015, our band of misfits has been proudly un-refining taste buds at our Garden City brewery and downtown Boise taproom.

If you like your beer a little more on the classic side, fear not. Our traditional barrel-aged beers and high-quality IPAs are as Old World as it gets. And right now, our 90 oak barrels are aging limited-batch sours, Brettanomyces-forward funky beers, Bourbon barrel stouts, barley wines, and more. Our brutish brewers also craft kettle sours, hazy IPAs, West Coast IPAs, Belgian ales, and dark and malty styles.

 On any given day (especially Thor’s days), you’ll find creations that will have you rethinking what a brewery can do. Experimental styles like our Ice Cream Ales, cocktail-inspired beers, and Candy Gose series are anything but primitive. 

Most of our beers are available only at our two taprooms, so stop in if you want to taste what happens when Barbarians take over the taps.

Outsiders Welcome!

~ CRY OF THE BLACKBIRDS ~
Blackbirds are mysterious, magical creatures. Almost as magical and mysterious as the spontaneous fermentation this barrel aged sour underwent before being aged in red wine barrels for a year. Blackberries and boysenberries were then added for the last month giving the beer a beautiful red hue with extra dimensions of complexity. 
8.5% ABV
0 IBU
Draft and 500ml bottles available at both Barbarian Taprooms. 

@thevoidboise will be serving food outside our Garden City Taproom from 4-8pm today (Friday) and 2-7pm tomorrow.

Our brewing crew got the best birthday present today in the form of a new-to-us forklift and keg washer! 

We’re gearing up for our big move down the street, one piece of equipment at a time. Speaking of the big move to 32nd & Clay in Garden City ~ it’s still happening! We’re just stuck in permitting purgatory and will hopefully be able to start construction soon. Unfortunately, that means we do NOT have a timeline for when we will moving the brewery and taproom. Don’t worry, progress updates will be reported as they occur!
