Dry Aging Program !!

We love making food taste better. One delicious way to do that, dry aging. We have recently started in house dry aging meats. We will be making tasty burgers this way. Dry aging is a method to increase the "meatyness" of a meat done by allowing the meat to rest for any number of days under certain conditions. We feel that 30 day is the perfect number for us, leaving a more intense flavor.

Should you like to be notified as we make the dry aged specials please drop us an email.


We are the Barrel House and love all things about barrels, therefore it only makes sense that we create our own deliciousness from such. We started up a barrel aging cocktail program and have been exploring the depths of these  barrels by aging cocktail classics such as Manhattans, Negronis and even vodka (because we can) for a unique twist on the Moscow Mule. Our latest cocktail, Cloudy Thoughts is a gin based libation.  Be sure to stop in to try one while it's still here as it'll surely leave you day dreaming about la la land.

Each different barrel's wood, affects all spirits differently. We strive for quality and superrb flavor from each of our creations and age our drinks for a minimum of 4 weeks.  This aids in imparting a taste that is in a class of it's own.  We are partial for aging whiskey and bourbon but also try our hand at tequila, brandy, gin and vodka.

Come discover how spirits mellow and evolve, and pick up woodsy notes. After a lenghty sleep inside these wooden beds you will be able to taste something never before experienced. Each cocktail will feature a component that was barrel aged or an entirely aged cocktail itself.

If you would like to be notified as we release each cocktail drop us an email. Be there as we release the Krakken, then proceed to taste perfection.
