Rather than drag my dryer around every time I would need to plug into a 240V outlet, is there any sort of power strip or connector that would give me an extra plug so I could have them both plugged in?

Clearly I would not run both devices at the same time, this would just be for my ease - my washer/dryer are both shoehorned in a tiny little room.. I about have to take off the door to even get it out.

Yes, I have bought them from granger I think. It had a IEC320 plug on the end. I don't think it was rated for the current you'll probably need for your brewery though. You're better off building one yourself from Home Depot outlets and a $4 toolbox.

You could make an extension using the proper heavy gauge cord wire and the right plugs at both ends... I did that as an extension cord for my welders.

My MIG/Arc/Plasma all have different plugs, so I put all 3 types at the end of the wire (Sort of "Y'ed" together).

Just throw another deep 4" square box under the dryer outlet box and wire another receptacle in. The wires all run parallel.
