Barrel-Icicle-1

Dug this photo out of the archive. It’s from one of my more memorable beer experiences a few years ago, spent with a friend and a legendary brewer. I’m not going to bore you with the story. What you’re looking at is a beer barrel icicle that was about 8 inches long. After filling a barrel with beer for aging, the contents can slowly seep between the staves. FYI – they don’t taste very good.
