Barrels Brought to Burien from DeLille Cellars

Two Fridays ago we trekked out to Woodinville, WA and met up with the winemakers at DeLille Cellars to taste them on a few of our beers, sample some of their wines, and haul home a few of their retired red wine barrels.

The result was that we left there with four barrels from three different barrel makers, all French, that we'll use to age some of our beers in over the upcoming months.

At present we're about ready to fill a few kegs with barley wine aged in a DeLille barrel that was used to make their 2003 Syrah. Once we get the kegs carbonated we'll let you all know about a release date.
