Barrel Pick Up

Finally… Drove to Montreal yesterday to pick up my barrel at my friend’s house. It is now safe and sound at my house and awaiting an addition of a lovely Imperial Stout to age for a while. VERY excited!

Barrel project update

Time to get the barrel… I’m off to Montreal tomorrow to visit my friend who is storing my barrel for me. Heading out tomorrow morning, arriving in Montreal late afternoon, headed to Saint Bock for dinner then to play some wonderful renaissance music for cornetts and sackbuts.

Friday morning I’ll load in the barrel to my car and head home. An all too short but sweet visit in Montreal.

I’ll be taking pics along the way and do a full blog post and update when I return.


Just add gas

Scott was at my house last night to start in on the gas plumbing for the brew stand. He has mad skillz in that regard. I held things. And took pictures.
