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!

The halls are decked and we’ve got plenty of Barbarian beer on draft- swing by our @barbariandowntown BEER BAR after your holiday shopping or gatherings! If you’re looking for a place to host holiday gatherings we’ve got room as well. 

The Beer Bar is 21 and older because we do not brew on-site. Well behaved dogs on leash allowed inside.
