    You are right...more of a place to drink than do that much barrel aging... Used to go to CBS meetings down there.

    I was always under the impression that BCBS was thew first widely known beer that was going into Barrels in this country and Cuvee de Tomme was the second. Reading this thread it appears that Sam Adams is in the mix as well. Dr. Bill mentions this topic in an old episode of NBT. IT is around the 10 min mark.

    The first bottled vintage of Samuel Adams Triple Bock was released in 1994 and the SA website even says first First Brewed: 1994 which would still work, since they claim only that it was aged in the barrels for "several months" and IIRC it came out near the end of the year.
