|"Live" Barrels in the Walk-in Cooler|
The first beer I had was the Frite Galois. Here is the description of the beer from the menu:
Frite Galois: 4.6% ABV / $4.50 Teardrop
This light farmhouse ale was aged for three months in white port barrels that were previously used to age our Noyeaux. This is a nice crisp sour beer with a trace of influence from the Noyeaux.
I found it to be light and refreshing with a nice but not overwhelming sourness to it.
Every Tuesday the Barrel House taps 2 different barrels for their "Live Barrel" Series. The next beer I had was from a barrel that was tapped the previous Tuesday called Cherry Bourbon Double Red (w/ Bourbacide). This beer has a wonderfully delightful nose of cherries, chocolate, and bourbon with a sour and earthy finish. It reminded me of chocolate covered cherries (with bourbon, of course).

Here are a few pictures of the Barrel House. Thanks for the tour and great beer Ron! I can't wait for my next visit.
