Our Story

BarrelHouse Brewing Co. is nestled in the rolling hills of San Luis Obispo County on the edge of Paso Robles and in the heart of wine country at  3055 Limestone Way, Paso Robles CA.

Dragonfly LogoAs you turn off Ramada Drive and onto Marquita Way, you will meander around a majestic oak tree. This majestic white oak stands in the middle of where the road would have gone, if not for this tree’s historical significance. If you look closely at the trunk of this old oak, you will notice the mark of an equal armed cross carved into its bark. The cross was carved sometime between 1775 and 1776 when Spanish Lt. Colonel Juan Batista de Anza led more than 240 men, women and children on an overland journey from the frontier New Spain to settle in Alta California. During that 1,200 mile journey, the very thirsty Colonel carved the cross to signify the perfect location for a brewery…well, that’s our story at Barrelhouse and we can’t exactly prove it, but we’re sticking to it! Historians believe that Juan Batista de Anza or someone on his team carved the cross to indicate a safe place to camp. We think it makes a sweet logo, too!

After you pass the old oak, make a left on Limestone Way and look for the dragon fly…you can’t miss it. Stop by, grab a brew or two and relax. Enjoy our glorious beer gardens with friends while you listen to the waterfall and experience the central coast the way it was meant to be enjoyed…outside.

Well Made Craft Beer

BHBC Portfolio Beers


Templeton Session Style Ale – Crisp | Gooseberry | Lychee
Templeton is crafted to be highly sessionable with a light balanced body and clean refreshing finish. Select malts and hops add subtle biscuit character with notes of pear and sauvignon blanc. We keep this beer low on alcohol and high on flavor so it pairs well with both work and play. This beer is a tribute to our friends in the community.
ABV 4.5% | IBU: 18 | S.G. 1.045

Poor Man’s Blonde Style Ale – Smooth | Hoppy | Peach
Even at 5.0% ABV this Blonde Style Ale is pumped full of delicious flavor. This is a craft beer drinker’s blonde. We brew it with nearly all Mosaic hops and just enough IBU’s for those that appreciate hops but not too over-powering for those looking for something drinkable. This beer imparts huge citrus and fruit character while finishing slightly sweet and ends clean.
ABV 5.0% | IBU: 20 | S.G. 1.050

Pale Ryder Rye Style Pale Ale – Citrus | Hoppy | Lemongrass
What makes our Rye Style Pale Ale memorable is it’s incredibly unique aroma. It delivers citrus, apricot, mango, ginger, and lemongrass, created from our one-of-kind blend of Sorachi Ace, Centennial, Cascade, and Chinook, followed with a beautiful balance of bitterness and malt character. We brewed long and hard to deliver something special among a sea of mediocre pales.
ABV 6.1% | IBU: 39 | S.G. 1.056

BarrelHouse India Pale Ale – Hoppy | Dank | Mango
Like our Pale Ryder, we want you to first inhale close your eyes and dig deep, take in all the dank, herbal, and mango hop goodness. We’ve built this delicious IPA around our favorite hops Simcoe, Cascade, Centennial, and Mosaic. Now open your eyes and take a gulp and let the bitterness, malt character, and aroma play tug-a-war across your palate. We haven’t skimped and believe this is how an IPA should taste. Satisfy your hop addiction with this excellently crafted IPA.
ABV 7.0% | IBU: 76 | S.G. 1.065

BarrelHouse Stout – Creamy | Chocolate | Fig
Since the first batch our people can’t get enough of this creamy and slightly hoppy BarrelHouse Stout. It’s crafted with oats for creaminess, lactose for sweetness, belgian dark syrups for intense dark fruit notes, dark malts for chocolate and roast, and just enough hops for a balanced bitter/sweet finish.
ABV 6.0% | IBU: 20 | S.G. 1.061
