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.

It’s been our goal since day one to introduce a Beer Club. We love the idea and today it becomes reality.
Why should you become a member of the BarrelHouse Brewing Co. Society? Why not? 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!
It’s really important for us to stay connected with everyone in our community, especially local brewers. Jason has been part of the San Luis Obispo Brewers (SLOBs) since college and I was excited to connect with them as soon as I moved up. It didn’t take long for me to realize this group was stupid. Stupid in a ridiculously amazing way! They welcomed us with opened bottles of some of the best brews I’ve ever tasted. Not to mention a wealth of knowledge.
The nucleus of this outgoing club is Doc’s Cellar in San Luis Obispo. Sure, we could have easily purchased all of our grains, hops, yeast and other pilot brewing goodies from any number of online sources. But, we have to support our local guys and we just love spending hours in there talking ‘shop’. Thanks to George and the rest of the crew for always taking great care of us.
One of the members sent an email out letting everyone know he had some fresh wet hops. Nugget and Chinook. After a couple days I jumped on it. I sent Michael B an email and we planned to meet. I figured he had a couple bags full. To my surprise he had full bines with a hearty amount of fresh hops. Yea! We harvested and they went straight to the brewery where our wonderful wives spent a few hours removing the flowers. Oh yea, west coast pale ale with fresh wet hops here we come!
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.
