About Barbarian Brewing

Barbarian Brewing opened in Garden City, Idaho in October 2015. We specialize in sours and barrel aged beers. Our mission is to create delicious, complex, artisan ales. Our handcrafted ales are inspired by old world traditions but our creativity won’t be limited by style guidelines.

Barbarian is founded and operated by husband and wife duo, James Long and BreAnne Hovley. As Head Brewer, James creates Belgian and European style Sour Ales, Imperial Ales, and a variety of other beers that require 2-18 months of aging time in oak barrels or stainless steel vessels.
