Default how to serve my RIS from a barrel?

I brewed an RIS yesterday and I started to think about oak aging it. Then I started thinking about my buddies wedding which is about 5 months away, and thought it would be cool if I was able to serve just the wedding party a special batch from a small 1.3 gallon barrel. is this possible? I'm thinking I could prime it in the barrel just like bottling.

You could prime it very low. Very little over 1 volume. Do some searches for cask ale. That sounds like what you are thinking about.

You drill a hole in it on the front and put a faucet in, then route the hose out a hole in the back to a keg.
