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

BarrelHouse Brewing Portfolio Bottles


Portfolio Beer Banner
Templeton ~ Session 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 ~ Taproom, Draft Accounts, & 22oz Bottles

Poor Man’s ~ Blonde 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 ending clean.
ABV 5.0% | IBU: 20 | S.G. 1.050 ~ Taproom, Draft Accounts, & 22oz Bottles

Pale Ryder ~ Rye Pale Ale – Citrus | Hoppy | Lemongrass
What makes our Rye Style Pale Ale memorable is it’s incredibly unique aroma. It delivers citrus, apricot, mango and lemongrass aromas, created from our one-of-kind blend of Sorachi Ace, Centennial, Cascade, and Chinook hops. The hop goodness is followed closely by 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 ~ Taproom, Draft Accounts, & 22oz Bottles

BarrelHouse India Pale Ale – Hoppy | Dank | Mango
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. We haven’t skimped and believe this is how an IPA should taste. Ballanced like music between the hops and malts. Unfiltered to bring forward all of the hop flavor and aroma. Satisfy your hop addiction with this excellently crafted IPA.
ABV 7.0% | IBU: 76 | S.G. 1.065 ~ Taproom, Draft Accounts, & 22oz Bottles

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: 25 | S.G. 1.061 ~ Taproom, Draft Accounts, & 22oz Bottles

Brazz Monkey – Smooth | Honey | Citrus
The perfect refreshing specialty for those warm summer days. We hand crafted this delicious tropical blonde with clementine oranges and fresh local orange blossom honey. Since we debuted this smooth, sweet nectar at our anniversary party, people can’t seem to stop talking about it. You asked for it, so here you go!
ABV 5.0% | IBU: 20 | S.G. 1.050 ~ Taproom and Select Draft Accounts

Berry Session Saison – Berry | Floral | Zest
Saisons are a farmhouse ale that was traditionally brewed in the winter months in Wallonia, Belgium, to be consumed throughout the summer months. Not so long ago it was close to being an endangered style, but over recent years, thanks to breweries like ours, there’s been a revival.
Our berry saison is brewed with wild blackberries and raspberries foraged from our local Atascadero creek. Fruity, dry and tart, this brew keeps you coming back for another sip. There are hints of floral, lemon zest and earthiness from the saison yeast. Enjoy our unique Barrelhouse twist on the aromatic Belgian Saison style.
ABV 4.8% | IBU: 25 | S.G. 1.044 ~ Taproom and Select Draft Accounts

Harvest Ale – Vanilla | Spice | Roast
Our Harvest Ale imparts all of the chocolate and roasted nut flavors of a classic porter, with a Barrelhouse twist…we add fresh vanilla beans, local, organic spices and fresh roasted pumpkins for a roasty, spicy, vanilla porter experience. As the vines covering our hills turn yellow and our days begin to get shorter, this Harvest Ale celebrates the season with spiciness and warmth.
ABV 7.0% | IBU: 22 | S.G. 1.063 ~ Taproom and Select Draft Accounts

Night Ryder – Roast | Pine | Spice
This Rye Style Black IPA breaks down and rebuilds the boundaries between roasted dark malts and brilliant, complex, hoppy IPA aromas that were pioneered here on the West Coast.  This beer imparts huge pine and spicy rye complexity with a subtle toasted malt sweetness.  This meticulously crafted beer is the most recent release of our Forager Series…Venture off the beaten path!
ABV 8.0% | IBU: 75 | S.G. 1.070 ~ Taproom, Select Draft Accounts & 22oz Bottles
