I stopped by here after briefly visiting the Brewery in Paso Robles. I decided to wait to drink and buy goods at this location, instead of the brewery, because of Barrelworks. At first I was a little confused, because Barrelworks is around a corner once you walk in the main building and it wasn't obvious. I initially sat down and the ordered a Parabola from the waitress only to get the reply "it's not on tap". I was a little frustrated because I had decided not to drink it at the main brewery and thought I was not going to get to try it. The only issue I had was the waitress didn't say, "you can get it just around the corner in Barrelworks", which I had to find out by myself. A small issue, but not handled the best.

I spent the rest of my time in Barrelworks, so I'll comment on that. The facility is beautiful, with a great feel to it. They have an amazing selection, they have several beers that they do not distribute and they are outstanding. Mostly Wild Ales and other Barrel aged yummies. Unfortunately, you are not able to get anything bigger than a sample and for $3 for a few ounces isn't cheap. I guess that is what you pay for exclusivity. They also have a very nice selection of bottles to take out also, example '10, '12, '13 Parabola, Anniversary 12-16 and '12 and '13 Sucaba. It was pretty amazing, although they are expensive. I would have given a 5 for selection if I could have had larger pours.

I didn't eat, but the service was very good. They have a great selection of merchandise in both the main area and Barrelworks.

Definitely worth going to if you are driving through or live even remotely close. Well done overall and amazing beer.
