Jason, Chris, and John Pranjic (BarrelHouse Speakeasy Manager) recently sat down with the guys from the Central Coast Beer Radio Show at our newest Speakeasy location in San Luis Obispo. As usual the interview was filled with laughter, stories (mostly true), insider information, and of course great BarrelHouse beers.
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…

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.
