March 2015 Barrel Committee Meeting

The Nordeast Brewers Alliance loves it’s barrels. So to help make sure that we are getting the best beer in and out of the barrels, a group consisting of executive committee members, barrel wranglers, and aficionados meets every so often to ensure quality, schedule emptying and re-filling, and plot the future path of our barrel program. In attendance this March of 2015 was Aaron De Boer (master barrel wrangler), Perrin Bishop-Wright (assistant barrel wrangler), Tim Stuemke, Aaron Hamann, and Bryce Larson. We sampled beer from all six of the barrels and came up with a number of conclusions and actions plans.

In summary, this is what you need to know. Saison and Flanders are being emptied and filled in May. Koval is being emptied and filled in May/June as well. Sign-up for the barrel fills will happen at the March 19th meeting @ 7pm at Midwest Supplies in St. Louis Park.
