Introducing The Great Pumpkin Hunt! This video was created in conjunction with the release of our Harvest Ale, a fall specialty ale from our Forager Series. This series is about creating unique seasonal beers crafted with ingredients foraged from the Central California Coast. With each new release we’ll capture all the mischief that goes into every bottle. Cheers!


Harvest Ale 22oz BottleHarvest Ale
Graham Cracker | Pumpkin Pie | Vanilla
As fall settles on the Central Coast, our desires for a more compex, malt focused beer come to life. To satisfy this desire, we present to you the Harvest Ale. Created in the Forager Spirit, this spiced brown porter is crafted with fresh local spices and hand roasted pumpkins. With hints of graham cracker, pumpkin pie, and vanilla, it celebrates the spirit of the season with a truly unique taste. The brew pairs well with raking leaves, carving pumpkins, and preparing for El Niño… Cheers!

Max Randolph (yes he is an actual Viking), hand-forges all of the medieval BHBC stamped bottle openers for us.

This year for all of our Society members we decided to enlist the Viking’s help to blacksmith a special batch. Included in this year’s membership each Society member will receive a custom key-chain bottle opener with the initials SM15.

We’re fascinated by his craftsmanship we followed him back to his workshop to captured him in action. Let me start by saying these images simply don’t do it justice. We’ll soon be releasing a video showing exactly how much time and artist goes into each piece. Stay tuned.

A couple months back our friends at Coast Hills CU contacted us about a small project. We’ve always had a great relationship with Coast Hills so we didn’t hesitate to say yes, to whatever it was they were thinking.

The day arrived. We started pre-dawn in Templeton, Ca, our neighboring community, and spent the next 16 hours filming with an incredibly talented film production company. We couldn’t believe how long shooting a commercial took, but like everything we do at BarrelHouse Brewing Co., they believe even the smallest of details can make the difference between good and great.

A huge applause to the business team at Coast Hills CU for making stunning short film this happen. We are truly honored and forever indebted to you. Literally and figuratively…
