BarrelHouse Brewing Co. is located in Paso Robles, CA.

Their focus is on unique, drinkable beers with a constant flow of small batch projects.

It’s been our goal since day one to introduce a Beer Club. We love the idea and today it becomes reality.

Membership in the BarrelHouse Society offers something no other brewery on the Central Coast is willing to offer…your own key to the brewery. Not really, but pretty much as close to that as you can get. With our Barrel Aged Beer program up and running, our Sours ready for release and the debut of our Forager Series, this is your chance to be part of the everything BarrelHouse Brewing Co. has to offer.
Space is limited and when it’s full, it’s full. Click here for a complete list of Society benefits and additional details.
We’ll see you at BarrelHouse Brewing Co. soon!
Beer 97% water.
We tried. We tried hard to use our local water. But in the end it just wasn’t conducive for making the best beer possible and we must make the best beer we can. So the search began and once again Jason did the impossible and sourced a used Reverse Osmosis System in pristine shape.
We hadn’t budgeted for water treatment so finding a good value on a used system was vital. Even if it meant an extended drive to Pahrump, Nevada. After driving back from San Diego, our alarms went off at 3am to meet Kevin on the side of I-5 with a flat bed trailer needed to drag our RO System back to it’s new home.
As we got closer to Baker we noticed a mirage. In the distance our eyes were telling us there was a huge body of water. Really? We’re in the middle of the desert?! As we turn into Baker, we’re met with water, mud, and snow removal equipment. Lots of all of it. Wild! Talking with the locals, the day before at around 2:30pm clouds started to build and by 3:30 the rain began to pour. Flash Flood! Within a couple hours the entire valley was covered in rushing water, sweeping away everything in its path. We’ve all seen Into the Wild, but damn! Crossing the valley from Baker to Pahrump was interesting and fun. We finally made it to our destination, unscathed, as I know you all were concerned.
We drove through the ‘town’ looking for circus tents. Yep, that’s what we were told to look for and they weren’t kidding. Literally, circus tents full of stuff. Lots and lots of stuff. Come to find out these guys buy up storage units and sell the goods. You know, I had to go there and yep, they’d been on a few episodes of Storage Wars. Good bunch of guys. They took great care of us and made sure the system was as secure as possible before we drug it away.
We drove. Again. Smiling the whole way.
Great beer demands great people and at BHBC we’ve got the best!
When you walk into BarrelHouse Brewing we want it look, feel, and smell of our delicious beer. A main component of west coast style beers are hops. Hops take a few seasons to take root, we were out of season, and with the buildout in full force we thought it was a good idea to keep our precious hop rhizomes close to home. This started our BHBC Hop Project.
We needed 13-15 containers for all of our rhizomes. With cost always a concern, we opted for the ever so elegant orange Home Depot buckets. I drilled drainage holes, added small wooden braces (to later attach our vertical trellises), and blended some soils and nutrients. We decided on an area of fence that would receive good sun and would support a small trellis system.
Let’s see, we’ve got Willamette, Magnum, Chinnock, Nugget, Cascade, Fuggle, & Centennial. I know we wont a harvest this year, but hopefully the following. We’d love to do a small Estate batch of our brew, but until then we hope you’ll enjoy the hop bines around the Brewery as much as we will.
Enjoying a day off after a long fun week of bringing our new brewhouse to California, we decided to head over to Cambria Beer Co for some fresh local brews. Aaron Wharton, the owner and brewer, welcomed us with a smile and flight of his best beers. We loved them all!
It’s a cozy and charming place where he’s making great use of the space with his custom made 3 barrel system.
I’d say when you’re in the neighborhood you should stop by, but I won’t. Instead, I say make a special trip up our beautiful coast to support and enjoy what Cambria Beer Company has to offer.
