Broulee Brewhouse was founded by four Broulee locals with a shared vision to produce high quality beer and food in a unique place that can be enjoyed by all of the community. 

Malted Barley

Malted barley, or malt, is the brewer’s preferred grain for making beer. In its most basic form, it is barley that has been allowed to germinate by soaking the grain in water. This prepares the starches to be converted into fermentable sugars.


Brewing water affects the beer in three ways: It affects the pH of the beer, which affects how the beer flavors are expressed to your palate; it provides “seasoning” from the sulfate-to-chloride ratio; and it can cause off-flavors from chlorine or contaminants.


Hops are the green cone-shaped flowers, or “inflorescence,” of the Humulus lupulus plant. They’re a climbing perennial with a distinct jackpot for craft brewers. Hidden inside each cone are tiny yellow pods or glands called lupulin—the source of bitterness, aroma, and flavor in beer.


The majority of beers use a yeast strain called Saccharomyces. This translates from Latin to “sugar fungus.” It’s apt, given that the yeast that goes into beer looooooves sugar. Within that genera, there are two specific species of Saccharomyces yeast that get the most use: lager yeast and ale yeast.


Our beers are as natural as you can get! Made with no preservatives, raw ingredients, and brewed locally in Broulee, in our new purpose built brewery.
