Read about the Bottle Hose Brewery

Founded in 2012, The BottleHouse Brewery has grown into a 7-barrel brewhouse that focuses on small batch releases and continual innovation with old and new world styles. We take an artistic approach to bringing these hand crafted ales to our local community, opening dialogues to further educate ourselves and our patrons. 2014 saw the opening of The BottleHouse Meadery, which gave us an even broader field of fermentation to work in and experiment and where we have chosen to focus on unique ingredient combinations heavily favoring local products. Our passion for barrel-aging has led us down the path to mixed fermentations and the production of sour and wild beers. In 2016 we opened a second taproom in Lakewood that is dedicated to the production and aging of these unique ales and houses dozens of barrels in various stages of fermentation.

Our lineup of beers includes an ever rotating batch of one-off and seasonal experiments peppered with flagship offerings. Aroma and flavor forward hoppy ales, twists on classic lagers and European offerings with a strong Belgian lean, balanced and flavorful barrel aged imperials, sophisticated yet approachable meads, dry and complex ciders and an increasing number and variety of unique sours. Entering 2018 a large portion of both of our taplists will be dedicated to our barrel-aged sours as we strive to become an area leader in the production of these beers. Many of our products see limited runs of 1-300 bottles, available exclusively at our taprooms while supplies last.
