“Busy day today: bottling Howling Moon DIPA. kegging Earthrise IPA, and finally filling barrels with our Listermann Brewing Company collaboration, Wolfmann Imperial Wheat Stout.

I just had a 30-40% loss on a project due to contamination because I bought barrels from another cooperage…” — David Yancey, Head Brewer at Taxman Brewing Company

Fremont Brewing“We just starting pulling some samples out of a vanilla barrel we picked up from you and we are really digging it. ” — Matt Lincoln, Director of Brewing Operations at Fremont Brewing
