Team

Jason Carvalho and Kevin Nickell, the co-owners of BarrelHouse Brewing Company have been lifelong friends and business partners for the past 8 years as commercial and residential building contractors. After garage brewing for 4 years and searching for used commercial brewery equipment for over a year, Jason discovered a used system at a brewery in Canada that was exactly what they were looking for. Kevin and Jason flew up two days later to inspect the equipment and place their deposit. Shortly thereafter during a visit from long time friend Chris Vaughn they mentioned their recent purchase and initial plans and he instantly replied “I’m in!”
In February of 2013 their dream of designing and building the most unique brewery on the Central Coast became reality. Born of blood, sweat and beers lives BarrelHouse Brewing Company. A brewery and brewery team second to none. A brewery by the people, for the people. Meet the people…
