CASK Barrel Project
As the name suggests, CASK has an affinity for wood aged-beers. CASK produced fantastic barrel-aged beers from 2007 to 2011 including a Russian Imperial Stout, a Strong Scotch Ale, a Belgian Dark Strong and a Weizenbock. We followed those up in 2013-14 with an incredible clone of Seven Bridges Double IPA ‘Ole Woody’ and an Old Ale named “Marshall’s Mess”. After an extended break, the group came together again in 2022 to age a Belgian Tripel in a Chardonnay barrel. These Barrel Projects are open to CASK members, however their beer must score well enough to get into the barrel. Beers are scored blindly in a miniBOS setting and the top beers go into the barrel. After at least six months of aging, the wood-aged barrel beers are distributed back to the brewers. The klub tries to hold a small amount available in reserve for CASK tastings and/or competitions.
