Barrel aged beer and distilleries

Barrel aged beer and distilleries

For those who love barrel aged beer, we want to give credit to some of the outstanding distilleries that allow us to produce all of the great beers you enjoy.  While we realize that there are outstanding wine barrel aged brews out there, today we are going to focus on barrel aging in spirits barrels.  While there are a wide variety of these types of barrels out there, the majority of the barrels selected by craft breweries are bourbon barrels, such as those from Jim Beam or Wild Turkey.  Many of these barrels are sold to Australian companies for use, […]

How long ago was the craft brewing industry created? While the “industry” itself would not have been termed as such for a very long time, the craft itself developed thousands of years ago. […]
