Tully's Beer School: Discussing the influence of wood aging on beer

What: Educational

When: Wednesday - January 16, 2013 @ 06:30PM to Wednesday - January 16, 2013 @ 07:30PM

Where: Tully's Beer & Wine, Wells, Maine
A group of beer lovers that meet every other week or so at Tully's Beer & Wine in Wells Maine to discuss a specific beer topic, generally a style of beer. Wednesdays 6:30-7:30ish. Free, casual, simple. We encourage you to interact with us by posting to our Facebook group. We're completely open to suggestions and the interests of anyone that wants to come and join our discussions. More is merrier.

This week's discussion will focus on the influence of wood aging on beer. That's a big topic to be sure, but I'm sure by now almost everyone has had an opportunity to experience some beer that has been aged in wood and will have some opinion about it. Clearly the beer is changed, but in your opinion changed for the better, AND is it worth the extra dollars you'll pay? Those barrels aren't cheap and every day the beer spends in wood at the brewery is one day longer the brewery can't send it into the market and begin to pay off their investment in those barrels and barrel rooms. What do you like or NOT like about wood aged beer? Bring your opinions and your friends.
