I am a huge fan of Samuel Smith (Nut Brown Ale, Oatmeal Stout, Taddy Porter and Stingo) and, up till now, it's never been available in anything other than bottles. Just recently they started to ship barrels to the State in very limited quantities so I snagged up a barrel of the Nut Brown. Apparently Winter Welcome is next!

Stouts are great, especially this one.

That is great to hear! I love all their beers especially the nut brown. At 13.2 gallons I guess it’s a little smaller than the American half kegs. What did you pay less the keg deposit? What style tap does it take?

Yeah took me by suprise. I was able to get the last barrel the wholesaler had. The Nut Brown actually came to the States in late April and was "Draught Release No. 002". Not sure what No. 001 was but Winter Welcome will be No. 003 and released in late August.

Correct, it's a 50L so just a little smaller than a half

Quoted from ultimategameroom:

I believe it was 220$

140 12oz beers for $220 seems very fair! Especially for Sammy Smiths!
For quite a few years I’ve only used my kegmeister as a extra fridge and filled it with cans and bottles. I stopped buying kegs due To : less guests coming over and guests who prefer different styles. Most people couldn’t tell but after two weeks I could taste a slight flavor change even though I had a CO2 tank and the pressure was correct. Do you have similar issues or do you and your guests go thru barrels fast enough that it isn’t an issue?

I tell everyone to reconsider a draft system as most don't consume enough beer to justify it. I on the other hand have/had a minimum of two events every year where I went through 7-12 barrels of beer. Also, today a lot of breweries make sixtels (2.2 case) so you can have barrel beer and drink it before it goes bad. Which leads to your next question.........

MOST people will never tell after two weeks as most beers aren't really affected until 3-4 weeks or longer. Of course this all depends on style of beer you're serving. I've had some "aged" beers on tap for 6 weeks and due to the low carbonation they stayed pretty much in tact.

#1563 1 year ago

Just opened a DeDolle Stille Nacht that’s been aging in the basement since 2010.
12% abv and it has aged incredibly well!

The final beer I had last night was a 2013 bourbon county coffee. I was lucky enough to get a case of this from my local distributor. This was the last year before all the craziness set in where people were waiting in line for hours to get bourbon county and the variants.

so I'm in philly for juventus bayern munich soccer game. Paulaner beer has table set up in parking lot giving out free beer. Thunderstorm hits, everyone goes running for cover. I grab umbrella out of car and keep drinking. Guy in charge of booth says he wishes all the beer was gone, so he didn't have to haul it back. I pull my car up and throw 5 cases in trunk. Anything to help out. Cases were soaked and you had to grab real tight to keep from falling out the bottom, but I managed. Soaking wet and laughing all the way home. I actually didn't have a ticket to the game, was just there for the free beer.

#1581 1 year ago

First time having this one.
Usually not an IPA guy but the Rum Barrels seemed to have added a little sweetness and turned down the hops.

Very different, tastes a bit like tequila in that one...wasn't thrilled with it at first taste but ended up really enjoying the four pack.

#1583 1 year ago

Here are some old ones not sure if worth anything, let me know. Still have the boxes all unopened.

That pretty much describes every alcoholic drink I've ever had

Hey all,

Lots of local breweries in CT. Any home brewers around? I've been homebrewing for over 10 years now.

Just built a keezer with 16 taps and a glass rinser. Right now there is only 8 taps since I got tons of cans and bottles in milk crates inside. Plus hardware is stupid expensive. CO2 and Nitro ("Beergas") gas systems. I have a two tap kegerator in addition but being used as a mini fridge currently. Not pictured is my 4 tap jockey box with custom wood logo. Beer, wine and ciders of all varieties. 12 ft custom bar with leds. White LEDs for the back shelves. Currently up to a 50 gallon serving capacity, and about 40 gallons of primary/secondary fermentation capacity.

I call myself Beer Baron Brewing, but my setup is a speakeasy by far! Embryon and X's & O's for entertainment too! Dont know the hashtag to that one.

Cheers all!

Here is whats on tap below.

1. Green Apple Hard Cider - 6%ABV
2. Traditional Semi Sweet Cider - 6% ABV
3. Blueberry Honey Amber Ale - 6.5% ABV
4. NEIPA Citra/Mosaic - 7% ABV
5. Peanut Butter Porter - 6% ABV (Made with real pb nibs!)
6. Homemade Cream Soda
7. Chocolate Imperial Stout - 10.4% ABV (3yr old batch served on nitro with nitro faucet nozzle)
8. Bourbon Barrel Porter - 11.3% ABV (aged 4 months in oak barrels from local distillery surplus barrels)

Wines:

Piño Noir
Merlot
Zinfandel
Roscato (moscato/rosè blend)

To list the many dozens of craft beer cans and bottles is impossible for me. Suffice to say I got tons! Wife supports the homebrew hobby, even makes her own beer recipes that are gluten free!

Hard to believe an Orange County beer made it to VA, I use to live in the overrated OC and never found an OC brewery worthy when they first started curious how this one tastes.
