I just happened across this website. They are basically selling white whiskey and a 2L barrel to age it in. 2L sounds about perfect to me for oak aging some barleywine or an RIS. It doesn't look like the barrels are available for order yet, but I, for one, put my email on their mailing list for when they are. Thought I'd share.

I think you'd be better off just buying oak chips. I don't think you'd want to age a beer in there longer than a week.

A barrel is a barrel. You'd probably want to age the whiskey in there first to soak in and kill off any unwated yeast/bacteria hiding in the wood. 2L is a little on the small side, but it may end up being on the strong side for flavour anyway, especially the first batch or two, so keeping some of and then blending it with non-barrel aged beer might be the way to go anyway.
