To mark this week’s barreling of BBT 2016, I took a few minutes to chat with Shawn Vail, Head Brewer of Lakewood Brewing Co. He heads the company’s barrel aging program and is the authority on the matter here at LBC. He gave me a crash course in barrel aging, BBT, and all things round, wooden and filled with delicious, delicious beer.
