The Beauty of the Barrel Event
Though we have been on many a wine tour & tasting to see how the beautiful grape becomes the delicious vino, I’m not sure how we thought beer was made, until now at least.
Apparently, beer can be aged too, and it gets aged in barrels much like your favorite spirit. Interesting, right?
Obviously this doesn’t apply for the good ‘ol silver bullet. We know that stuff is made by Clydesdale stomping on wheat that grows in snowcapped mountains… or something like that. But for some classier breweries, the process takes a bit more time, and wood, to achieve, and a selection of those classy breweries will be offering up their suds for you to taste next week in Santa Monica:
