The 6/26 Lunar Eclipse marks FiftyFifty milestone!

Hey Gang!

I haven't been compelled to write much on here but thought a brief mention of some activity here at the brewery was worthy.

This morning...very early in the morning we filled the last 5 bourbon barrels for the 2010 Imperial Eclipse Stout. The barrels are 10-13 year old Evan Williams Single Barrel. There are 18 of these barrels in our dining room of the brewpub. The majority were filled in April but we held some barrels back for a shorter aging period. A test of sorts to see overall how the length of time in the wood affects our stout. We will most likely blend as many of the barrels as possible.
Holding back anything that demonstrates superior quality and anything that may not be complementary to the product.
