    Did a Barrel Aged event back in January with a couple of buddies. Those a re 2 vintages of KBS, and a homebrew. The Pearl Jam was just something that someone brought over to feel like they contributed.


    Sorry, I can figure out how to post a picture from Shutterfly on here.....

    That's an awesome lineup! I'm hoping to do a "moby Dick" night where everyone brings their shelf queens, hopefully it looks half as good as this.

    (I was going to say a "moby dick tasting" but that didn't sound right)

    Man I have to make it out to one of these!

    Your avatar is definitely one I would love to be a part of. Actually there is someone out there that has about 3 cases each left of batch 3000-8000. Saw them last week, about had a heart attack until the store owner told me they belong to someone. :(
