Pic(k) of the Week: Blue hands & big smiles fill casks.

Blue hands & big smiles fill cask.

Sanitary, and stylish, a team from Fire Works Pizzeria (Leesburg, Virginia) and Magnolia's at the Mill (Purcellville, Virginia) is pleased with their efforts.

On a tour of the Heavy Seas Brewing Company (of Baltimore, Maryland), the group filled and primed three firkins (10.8 gallon casks) of Loose Cannon Hop3 IPA, adding fresh hops and herbs ... under the careful supervision of Heavy Seas Brewing's cellarman Chris Mallon.

The blue hands team, left to right:
Chris Mallon, Erin Willingham, Katy May, Curtis Allred (restaurant manager), and Jennifer Miller.
