Barrels and beer – a perfect combination!
The making and use of barrels has a long history. Traditionally crafted for the storage and transport of both wet and dry goods, barrels made commerce possible. American white oak is the ideal wood for barrelmaking (Quercus is the latin name for the oak genus). Learn about the ancient art of barrel making from John Cox, who is an artisanal cooper and founder of Quercus Cooperage of High Falls, NY. Mr. Cox will talk about the history and cultural heritage of coopering and the process of barrel making. Enjoy a beer while reflecting on the use of American oak barrels and the craftmanship which goes into each one of them.
