Can anyone help me purchase fresh, used whiskey barrels, preferably from jd or jim beam. I would appreciate any info.
I just went through this. I contacted my local JD distibutor/rep and asked him how to get me one. About a month later it ended up at the brewery. We are going to do a cross promotional event when it is ready. The distillery reps should know how to get one, or can at least find out for you.
Hey, Beaux.........can you set a Brother up? Please E-mail me and let me know the who, what when, where, and how............Thanx!

Once you guys get all of your excellent beers aged in the wood, consider entering the Festival of Wood and Barrel Aged Beer in Chicago next November. The Illinois Craft Brewers Guild just held the third annual and it continues to grow and grow. There were about 70 beers from 15-ish states.

I've used the Jim Beam "store". Don't have the contact info with me, but look up Jim Beam Distillery and let them know what you want. I have had great success with their bbls. Relatively affordable, $80. shipped to the N.East, and you can reuse them...
