History of Whiskey

You can't really understand what a bourbon or whiskey barrel does for a beer if you don't know anything about whiskey.  Spend an evening watching these videos and you'll find yourself more understanding of what was going on in our oak barrels before beer went into them.

Momma, where do barrels come from?

Step 1)  Learn to fell a tree.  (don't try this without proper instruction from a certified lumberjack!)

Step 2) Learn the art of cooperage.

Step 3) Create a barrel factory where things are done a bit more efficiently.
