Pic(k) of the Week: Rigging in a brewery vessel

Rigging in a brewery vessel

Riggers off-load a 150-barrel * fermentation tank and rig it, carefully, into Heavy Seas Beer.

I took this photo on 22 May 2013, at the brewery in Halethorpe, Maryland, USA. Nearly eight years later, it's today's Pic(k) of the Week.



By the way, this is what happens when you notice an image you took eight years earlier but now have the temerity to think you can improve upon it. So: straightened, cropped, 'structured,' and rendered in monochrome. See the original: here.

  • * A barrel, as used in beer measurements, is not a physical thing. It's a unit of volume, equal to 31 U.S. gallons, the equivalent of 13.7 cases of beer (each case containing twenty-four 12-ounce beers). Thus the above fermenter, at 150 barrels, could produce 2,055 cases of beer (that is, 49,320 cans or bottles of beer) at any one time. Read more about beer measurements: here.

  • Pic(k) of the Week: one in a weekly series of images posted on Saturdays, occasionally (as is the case today) with a good fermentable as the subject.
