    (Shoot me a Beermail and I may be inclined to divulge what the secret kegs are)

    Aromas Craft Beer and Wine bar in Athens is putting on (at least) 10 different beers all aged in a different barrel in an effort to kick off the Classic City Brewfest weekend the right way.

    On Tap:

    -Founders Curmudgeon's Better Half (Maple Bourbon Barrels)
    -The Lost Abbey Deliverance (Serpent's Stout aged in Heaven Hill Bourbon blended with Angel's Share aged in Heaven Hill Brandy)
    -Iqhilika Chili Meade aged in South African Grenache Barrels
    -He'Brew Vertical Jewbilation aged in Sazerac Rye Barrels
    -Coney Island Albino Python aged on White Oak
    -Jolly Pumpkin Luciernaga aged in White Wine Barrels

    As well as a special barrel-aged surprise from local Terrapin and a few more secret wood-aged rarities!

    Also, for the beer geeks, I've been saving some pretty awesome Flanders Reds/Oud Bruins for a Flanders tasting, if anyone is coming into town and wants to get in on that let me know, I've got:

    NEBCO Fancy Pants
    Upland Gilgamesh
    Squatters 529
    Lost Abbey Red Poppy
    The Bruery Oude Tart

    And my bottle shop should still have all 3 years of the Rodenbach Vintages, Haandbakk, and Panil Barrique Reserva. Should be fun!

    I'll be up there for terrapin's anniversary so I may have to convince the significant other to go on a date
