My brother in law is a homebrewer in the SW burbs. He is also a regular at kenwood liquors which is one of the top liquor stores in that area. The beer manager there got 2 barrels from smooth ambler (7 and 8- yr bourbon barrels). He wanted my brother to fill them but he doesn't really have the capacity to do it. He asked me if we wanted the barrels free of charge. In return we would have to give the guy from kenwood maybe a sixtels worth from each barrel. My understanding is he wants them to give to some of his better customers, etc. I told him I would ask around. Do we have the room for two new 55-gal barrels? If we do wanna do it, we should brew for them ASAP as they are at kenwood, wrapped and ready to fill.
