Pic(k) of the Week: Tapping the cask

For some reason, the number of hits on this photo of me —working for the Clipper City Brewing Company, five years ago, in 2008— has taken off in the last few months, and even more so in the last few weeks.

Why, I don't know. There was nothing special about the photo's composition, except maybe for the young observer in the background. Me, I was doing what I like to do —tapping a firkin of real ale. I'll take all of this sudden interest as a compliment.

Tapping the cask

The caption I wrote for the photo was:
Jacket safely removed (from cask and person), Thomas Cizauskas of Clipper City Brewing taps a firkin (10.8 gallon cask) of Loose Cannon Hop3 Ale at the ribbon-cutting for Grapevine.

Baxter (Fort Mill), South Carolina.
29 January 2008.
