Beers currently on tap
About Our Philosophy:
Jessup Farm Barrel House is founded on having fun and letting our creativity explore the myriad of possibilities blending beer has to offer. By blending beers with different fermentation variations we are able to create unique and original flavors. Our goal is to take the robust characteristics from the barrels, and blend to bring out the complexities and nuances of the flavors.
The Barrel House has a 16-tap selection of various blends. Beer is served in pints, flights and growlers. Growlers are filled with a counter pressure growler filler, to ensure proper carbonation and extend the longevity of the beer.
About the Brewer:
Jeff took a scientific path on the way to a career in the craft brewing industry. After earning a BS in Biology from Purdue University, Jeff spent over four years working in the consumer product industry, working in research and development, product support, and quality assurance and quality controls roles. Next was a five-year stint as production manager in a Biotech startup company. During these nine years in the scientific industry, Jeff developed an interest in the culinary arts and an ever-deepening love for all things beer.
Jeff now has over five years of experience as a professional brewer. After graduating from the Siebel Institute’s World Brewing Academy International Diploma in Brewing Technology program in 2009, he began his career as Assistant Brewer at Carver Brewing Company in Durango, CO, eventually taking over as Head Brewer in 2012. In 2013 Jeff earned a Gold Medal for his European-Style Dunkel Lager at the Great American Beer Festival.
About the Barn:
The brewery is housed in a 133 year old, 3,000 square-foot restored barn that sits on the 13-acre Jessup Farm Artisan Village, next to the housing Bucking Horse development.
The original structure of the old barn has been preserved as much as possible. The first floor of the converted barn is used for fermenting, blending and barrel storage. Upstairs seating features a large wrap around bar and communal tables.
There is also a full service outdoor beer garden complete with cornhole, giant jenga, and patio.
