Carolina Bauernhaus™ is a farmhouse brewery and winery located in Anderson, SC. Our award winning hand crafted ales and ciders pay homage to the rich agricultural resources of Upstate South Carolina by using locally sourced malt, grains, yeast, hops and fruits. While our brewing techniques may be Belgian inspired, our beers are by no means reverent to tradition. From Carolina Bauernhaus’ taproom and pilot system in downtown Anderson SC to our production brewery on a working farm just outside of Anderson, we will strive to create a family of unique beers that range from traditional pale ales to approachable saisons and New England IPA’s to challenging barrel aged sour beers.

Source Series Opuntia
This is our 2017 GABF® Gold Medal winning native fermented saison brewed with North Carolina grown heirloom Wrens Abruzzi rye malt and pilsner malt. The souring bacteria used to make this beer was a strain of lactobacillus isolated by SouthYeast Labs from opuntia fruit in La France, SC. The beer was aged for 6 months in a Biltmore Cabernet barrel on the same opuntia fruit.
