Annual Barrel Sale

UPDATE 5/23/17 at 2:21 PM – WE ARE SOLD OUT! We will be contacting individuals who reserved in time to schedule pick-ups. Thanks to everyone who reached out!

Once a year the Milwaukee Brewing Co. purchases fresh Brandy Barrels from the Copper & Kings Distillery in Louisville, KY to age their award winning Louie’s Resurrection Ale in. The Resurrection matures in these barrels for two long months before being blended and bottled in October. The barrels are repurposed one more time to mature a second seasonal beer such as Admiral Stache Baltic Porter, Grand Madame Barleywine, Brutus Strong Ale, or whatever new beer the brewers choose to age in these oak barrels. After the second run, these well seasoned barrels are put on the auction block.

We have 80 of these 53 gallon barrels for sale. $50 each, or $45 for 3 or more. These barrels are now available on a first come, first serve basis at our South 2nd Street Brewery location.

Maybe you just want a piece of brewery history, or maybe you are looking to decorate the ole man-cave. These barrels are ideal for woodworkers and hobiests. The internet is full of creative barrel projects such as… Bar stools, end tables, container gardens, baby cribs, rain barrels, tree swings, stotage bins, liquor cabinets, Smokers, and you can even chip one up for Brandy barrel smoker chips.

Please contact us at info@milwaukeebrewing or call (414) 226-2337 to reserve your barrels and to arrange for pick-up!
