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.
We couldn’t resist sharing this posting of a sour beer blind tasting at Vendome in West Hollywood:
“The results are in! Thank you to all those who came out to our epic blind sour tasting this weekend! Hope you all enjoyed it as much as we did. While it was a fairly close competition, the results were quite interesting. Gotta love blind tastings!

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…
