Most Discussed

Bourbon barrels were hand-cut by a craft brewery to age stout. The barrels, which weigh between 1,200 and 1,500 pounds, were first used in the distillery’s production process from 1850 to 1915. The barrels were then sent to a Chicago-based brewery where they were aged for four years. The barrels are now being stored in a storage facility. The barrels will be sold at wholesale prices.
