BarrelHouse Brewing Co. is nestled in the rolling hills of San Luis Obispo County on the edge of Paso Robles and in the heart of wine country. As you turn off Ramada Drive and onto Marquita Way, you will meander around a majestic oak tree. This majestic white oak stands in the middle of where the road would have gone, if not for this tree’s historical significance. If you look closely at the trunk of this old oak, you will notice the mark of an equal armed cross carved into its bark. The cross was carved sometime between 1775 and 1776 when Spanish Lt. Colonel Juan Batista de Anza led more than 240 men, women and children on an overland journey from the frontier New Spain to settle in Alta California. During that 1,200 mile journey, the very thirsty Colonel carved the cross to signify the perfect location for a brewery…well, that’s our story at Barrelhouse and we can’t exactly prove it, but we’re sticking to it! Historians believe that Juan Batista de Anza or someone on his team carved the cross to indicate a safe place to camp. We think it makes a sweet logo, too! After you pass the old oak, make a left on Limestone Way and look for the dragon fly…you can’t miss it. Stop by, grab a brew or two and relax. Enjoy our glorious beer gardens with friends while you listen to the waterfall and experience the central coast the way it was meant to be enjoyed…outside.
