there are beers that are aged in whiskey barrels and there are more of them than beers aged in wine barrels but they do exist.

you could probably sell them on probrewer as they have a classified section for cooperage: http://probrewer.com/vbulletin/forumdisplay.php?s=8dfd72b634a1f0a61f764a490f928b78&f=53

i have no suggestions on what to charge but we pay $100 or so for 60 gallon whiskey barrels.

Just like coffee, sometimes you just have to say no thanks I'm all set and deal with the head ache.

Best option is to just always travel with your own. Beer and coffee!

I like High Life.

Well... I say.  If I were to stab someone in the jugular with the neck of the bottle I think I would twist the neck, but I suppose you could twist the bottle.

Don't get me wrong.  I have some obscure Cantillions, old World Wide Stouts and 120 Minute IPAs aging, plus Ipswich & Harpoon in the fridge.  I just like a High Life when I sit down after work on a hot day.  Especially when I get home around 10PM and have to be up at 6AM.

on a really really hot day one of those cheap beers like Millers or Busch taste really good when chilled almost to the point of freezing! like after mowing the lawn when it's 95 outside.

If you like that try this ice cold. Really it is just a quality version of a light beer.

Really you should try it if you like a light beer on a hot summer day you can just guzzle!!

oops link stupid...

I'm with Joe,
 i love and my fridge is always with tasty treats, but from college and tour days, nothing beats a slightly frozen PBR.  So good.  And since I'm preaching that, I may as well fess up to my new thing which is mixing Newman's limade with PBR (or substitute your own gross yellow beer)  About half and half.  So mother f'ing good.  And before I'm lambasted here, please try first then insult.  Flame on.

on another note just tried midas's touch last night...besides the 60-120 IPA's.  I just really don't like dog fish head.

i went south for the weekend and holy cats it was hot down there. it was 94f near boston saturday. so i bought a bunch of lower abv beers and some were very good. tafel bier (table beer) from notch was very good and small beer from anchor was great. tafel bier was 2.8% and the small was 3.3% and both were about $4.50 for a 22oz.
