Our Story

Barbarian Brewing opened in Garden City, Idaho in October 2015 and opened a second Downtown Boise Taproom in August 2017. We are a small, but mighty Barbarian crew of 10 people and are independently, locally owned. We brew on a 5 bbl nano system with a barrel room that houses more than 90 oak barrels aging limited batch sours, brettanomyces forward funky beers, Bourbon barrel stouts and barley wines. Barbarian also focuses on classic styles, kettle sours, hazy IPAs, West Coast IPAs, Belgian ales, dark and malty styles, and experimental styles such as Ice Cream Ales, cocktail inspired beers and a Candy Gose series. We primarily brew beer for our two Barbarian taprooms, so your best bet to find our beer is to visit our Garden City Brewery and Taproom or our Downtown Boise Taproom.

Our mission is to create delicious, complex, artisan ales and lagers. We draw inspiration from old world traditions but also strive to innovate and create new styles and techniques.

Specifics of the Barbarian Brewing Membership Program

The 2020 Membership runs from January 1, 2020 thru December 31, 2020 and includes: 

16 Bottles of Beer:

The 2020 membership will include a variety of different barrel-aged beers that will be rolled out in quarterly releases throughout the year. Each of the four bottle releases will include four 500ml bottles. Bottle selection will depend on which membership group you picked (i.e. Trickster will receive 4 funky/sour beers, Thunder God will receive 4 of the non-funky/sour beers, and All Father will receive 2 of each beer at each of the releases).

Spring Release (March)*

Spawn of Barbarian– Members Only release!  Spontaneously fermented sour ale aged in barrel and finished with Idaho Huckleberries. Trickster.

Jörmungandr– Members Only release! Belgian style Quadrupel aged in bourbon barrels with brettanomyces and maple syrup. Thunder God.

Winter Release (end of November)*

Elixir of the Gods– Pomegranate sour Quadruple aged in Port barrels. Trickster.

The Morrigan- Woodford Reserve Bourbon Barrel Imperial Stout. Thunder God.

*Because of the nature of barrel aging and to preserve quality, Barbarian Brewing reserves the right to change which beers will be bottled and released for members, and does not guarantee a specific release schedule. You will not be able to change your membership group after you sign-up, as the MEMBERS ONLY release quantities are going to reflect the number of members. Membership discounts will apply if you choose to purchase extra bottles. You will be notified via email and social media when bottle releases will be available for pickup and if there are extra bottles available for purchase.

Membership Discounts valid at both the Garden City & Downtown Barbarian Taprooms:

  • 10% discount on purchases in the taprooms, including bottles, draft beer, 16oz growlers and apparel. Ten percent discount does not apply to club enrollment or to club barrel tastings, beer pairing dinners, or other ticketed events.
  • 20% off non-barrel aged growler fills.
  • 20% off purchases of 6 or more bottles at one time (bottles may be mixed and matched).

2020 Membership Card:

Each member will receive a personalized, non-transferable, membership card with the first bottle release or at time of membership purchase. Members must present this card in both taprooms to receive the discounts.

Bottle Release Pick-Up:

The membership release bottles will be available for pick-up at the Garden City Brewery and Taproom at the quarterly release parties. Bottle releases must be picked up within one month of the release party during normal taproom hours. We do not have the space to cellar club members’ bottles.

If you are located out of the state of Idaho and choose to have someone other than yourself pick up your bottle releases, you must email [email protected] with the name of your designated trustee who is responsible to pick up your beers. The discount and other club benefits do not apply to Trustees.


The 2020 membership is valid from time of purchase in 2019 through December 31, 2020.

Membership Disclaimer:

Barbarian Brewing Memberships are open to USA residents over the age of 21 only. If you reside outside the state of Idaho and decide to purchase a 2020 Membership make sure to designate an Idaho Trustee or you are responsible for picking up your allocation within one month of release. We are unable to ship beer as FedEx, UPS, and USPS will not allow us to ship beer directly to customers. No refunds will be given after placing an order.

We packed in soooo many #freshhops in our second Wet Hop ale that we had to use the mash tun as our whirlpool. Can’t wait to try this FUNKTOWN IPA, made with fresh Citra hops and fermented with brettanomyces. ••••••••#welovefreshhopseason #hopharvest2018 #goodingfarms #funkyipas #itsfriday #fallisaroundthecorner #microbrewery #iloveidaho #freshipas #gardencity
