Who wants to bring me two in the DC area? :-) I'd drive up to Baltimore to meet!!!! I have a buddy with family in Philly, but his dad just moved to Virginia and he just (Sunday) had a kid, so no chance of using him.

I will be slightly limited on space. Bringing a minivan with 5 people. Could probably bring 4 barrels....maybe 5. We need space for suitcases, etc...at least going down. Re: barrels to DC...you might want to work a deal with someone in Philly to hold them for you and then drive up there at your convenience. For all interested......The barrels are $91 each. They come wet with a bung in them to keep them from drying. Most have had bourbon in them followed by some type of brandy/liqour. Check their website for types they sell to get an idea. I would call each buyer from the distillery and let you choose what you want from what is available. I would like paypal payment prior to my purchase so I do not get stuck. If I can get a discount, I will refund any savings. No charge for transport. You will just have to make it easy for me to get the barrels to you when I am in Philly.

I am in Louisville, Ky.

Not gonna drive anything to another state, but to a distillery and to UPS maybe. 8 or 9 distilleries in a 40 mile radius.
Unfortunately I HATE bourbon beer. Love Bourbon.

Trying to work a corny keg/barrel swap/meetup halfway with someone up in the Philly area. I want two barrels, but would still be happy with one. Will keep you posted if its a go and will coordinate via PM. I love it when a plan comes together (hopefully!)

What size barrels are we talking about here? I live in Philly so I could help accomodate and organize if I end up being in.

Default Barrels

I just contacted the owner of Finger Lakes Distillery and there is a plethora of empty barrels. I am planning to use the one barrel that I have to get a visual estimate of how many barrels I can fit...pending SWMBO approval to max pack the van with barrels. I am considering a cartop carrier for luggage to maximize space. Once I know how many barrels I can fit we will go first come first served for orders. My preference is full pay prior to me purchasing via paypal. Some have suggested 50% payment but this is just like buying any for sale item. You pay and then trust that it will be shipped. Only difference in this case is I am going to the distillery, picking them up, driving them to philly and meeting up with you and not charging anything for shipping. If you are not comfortable with this plan, I fully understand and will pass the barrel on to the next interested. Again, I am gaining nothing from this transaction so if there are no interested parties, I do not lose anything. This seems fair and consistent with forum practice when purchasing items. I will also call each of you from the distillery and let you select the barrel that you want. You can visit their website to see what they produce. Again, their process is the barrel is first used for bourbon, or rye whiskey. They then use the "used" barrels for a second aging of either the pot still whiskey or one of several other products. Their site describes their products. http://www.fingerlakesdistilling.com...p/our-products Will this work for you? I have kept PM's so I know who is interested and I will add to the list (getting close to max barrels) as PM's come in. Again, these are 10 gallon oak barrels, wet, with bung.
