Garden City-based Barbarian Brewing plans to add a second tasting room on Main St. in Downtown Boise in the former The Crux space on Main St. at 11th St. 

Barbarian opened in 2015 and features Belgian and European-style sour ales, IPAs and other beers brewed on site in the Garden City location.  

Barbarian takes over the empty space that housed The Crux coffeehouse, which closed abruptly in August, 2015. The Crux claimed it was moving - but ultimately that proved untrue.  

Barbarian hopes to be open by late spring or early summer.
