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…

Q&A

Are kids allowed? For this event, we are keeping it 21 and over. Grab a babysitter and enjoy a night off!

Can I bring Fido? If this party is anything like our grand opening, it would be best to leave your furry friends at home. We all love our animals, but even the best mannered dogs can get a little cranky.

Where else can I buy tickets? Tickets are also available in our taproom. But remember, the tickets are limited, so don’t hesitate.

Are you open before and after the event? This year the taproom will be closed until 12pm. At this time we open to guests with tickets. At 5pm we open back up to the public.

Can I bring my own chair? Yes! We do have seating available, but feel free to bring your own fold up chairs for use in the garden area.

Are you guys open to the public before and after the event? We’re closed before the event, but will be re-open to the public at 5pm.
