Pic(k) of the Week: A venerable pour

Pouring the cask (01)

The third 'course' at a beer dinner and tasting at Bilbo Baggins Restaurant, Alexandria (Old Town), Virginia.

Michael Armellino —Bilbo Baggins' proprietor— pours pitchers from a freshly tapped firkin (10.8 gallon cask) of Heavy Seas Brewing Loose Cannon Hop3 IPA: conditioned within the cask with Maryland-grown hops and 471 year-old wood chips rescued from the venerable, fallen, Wye Oak of Maryland.

25 February 2010.

Pic(k) of the Week: one in a weekly series of personal photos, often posted on Saturdays.
