Empty Barrels

If you've ever wondered what we do with the empty Bourbon barrels we purchase each time we bottle a cask, the above photo should clear that up. We send them to our brewer friends! The up-and-coming new SoCal brewery Modern Times recently made two different imperial stouts exclusively for us: one aged in a Four Roses barrel, the other in an Elijah Craig cask. You can imagine that our beer list pretty much exploded when we emailed these two little gems out last week. While you can no longer buy a bottle from this very special project, you can indeed taste these two beers tonight, Thursday the 16th, in our Redwood City store at 5 PM.

I'd get here early if I were you. These are going to get emptied fast.
