Pic(k) of the Week: Tie-dyed cask

Tie-dyed cask (01)

Resplendent in tie-dye, Jeff Forrest — beer and cheese monger at Whole Foods Market, near Tysons Corner, Virginia— taps a firkin (10.8-gallon cask) of Loose Cannon IPA (from Heavy Seas Brewing, of Baltimore, Maryland).

This was the first cask ever served in the store. "We're going to do it again," said Forrest, pleased with the results. Said another associate: "It was messy."

Fairfax, Virginia.

  • Caveat lector: As a representative for Select Wines, Inc. —a wine and beer wholesaler in northern Virginia— I sell the beers of Heavy Seas.
  • Pic(k) of the Week: one in a weekly series of personal photos, often posted on Saturdays, and often, but not always, with a good fermentable as a subject. Camera: Olympus Pen E-PL1.
