Apparently, we aren’t the only ones that love our Stout. The industry leading national publication, Draft Magazine just gave our Oatmeal Stout a 96! This is a tribute to our Brew Team. They are the most dedicated, passionate, and creative crew anyone could ask for, here’s to you guys!

On a side note, less than a month after we sent this bottle to Draft we updated our label designs. Check out the new design below.

Sour Blonde Ale
SOUR BLONDE ALE
Lactobacillus | Brettanomyces c. | Pediococcus
This bright, crisp Blonde is our homage to the classic Belgian masters. The vivacious carbonation and clear tart backbone carry fresh apricot and white oak barrel notes forward to awaken one’s palate.

Sour Amber Ale
SOUR AMBER ALE
Lactobacillus | Brettanomyces c. | House Culture
This tart amber is rich with vanilla and nutmeg barrel notes contrasting with cranberry and ripe honeydew. Fourteen months in American oak and fifty pounds per barrel of local whole berry Cabernet Franc has married this Flemish classic to the Central Coast.

SLO Taproom Release
BarrelHouse Brewing Co. to open New Taproom in San Luis Obispo

Paso Robles, CA – BarrelHouse Brewing Co., is expanding their reach with a new 2,000-square-foot taproom located in the heart of San Luis Obispo’s (SLO) historic downtown. SLO is nestled halfway between LA and San Francisco on California’s Central Coast.

Opening a taproom in SLO is the perfect opportunity to share their successful and unique experience on a more intimate level with the community. They are extremely excited about this new opportunity because it’s going to be very different from other beer experiences currently available in the area. While not many details are being shared about the design, they do say it will be incredibly unique fusion between their current Paso Robles location and a classic speakeasy.

The new taproom will feature 15 unique beers on tap, some of which the brewery has been working on for the past two years and have not yet been offered to the public. Beers will range from light blonde ales to barrel aged stouts. They will also be showcasing many sour ales that have been up to two years in the making. As their barrel program increases, having both taprooms is the perfect opportunity to release specialty beers to the local community before they are available in all markets. With BarrelHouse’s talented team and a brewery design that is capable of small batch projects, as well as full-scale production they can offer a vast variety of products. Many of the beers on tap at the San Luis location will be rotating as new beers are created and released. These unique beers are the fuel the keeps their team excited and motivated.

About BarrelHouse Brewing Co. – The main brewery and taproom is located in Paso Robles, CA, just minutes off the 101. Co-owners Jason Carvalho and Kevin Nickell (cousins and existing business partners) started planning their brewery in 2011 after years of tossing the idea around. In 2012 they sourced the brewing equipment that they had been searching for from a brewery in Canada that was upsizing. Immediately they began designing and constructing their dream along with longtime friend and fellow home-brewer Chris Vaughn who had been brewing with the team since their early recipe development stages in Carvalho’s garage.

Since their opening in February of 2013, BarrelHouse has quickly developed a following both locally and throughout Central California for their delicious, unique brews. An amazing team of craftsman including Head Brewer George Numair, Lead Brewer Mathew Jacobs, and Brewer/Cellar Master Gavin Warnock are pushing the boundaries of beer as we know it.

Their focus is on unique, drinkable beers with a constant flow of small batch projects. BarrelHouse Forager Series is a quarterly release of adventurous beers inspired by locally sourced, fresh ingredients. BarrelHouse Reservado de Robles (Reserve of the Oak) is a quarterly release series of barrel aged products such as Curly Wolf, a Maple Vanilla Bourbon Barrel Aged Imperial Stout and Heidbanger, a Red Rye Scotch Ale aged in Rye Whiskey Barrels. BarrelHouse is also releasing the first two beers from their Salvaje de Robles (Sour of the Oak) series in January. These unique, balanced sour projects are the perfect marriage of wine and beer making techniques that have been in use for thousands of years.

For everyday enjoyment, be sure to check out their award-winning lineup of portfolio beers: BarrelHouse Blonde, BarrelHouse Rye IPA, BarrelHouse IPA, and BarrelHouse Stout. All of which are currently available on draft as well as in 22oz bottles.
