What’s all this then? It looks like lots of fun! (it sure is...). Our personalised wooden beer barrel is the perfect Fathers Day gift
OK, so you’re not a hillbilly. You’re not living with your entire extended family, fighting bears, eating racoon and making moonshine in some wild, untamed forest. But that’s no reason to miss out on the joys of oak aging your own beer. With this personalised oak beer barrel you can enjoy the satisfaction of oak aging beer in your home. Simply take two litres of beer or your favourite ale, and pour them through a funnel into your freshly toasted American oak barrel of medium to heavy char, then, you play the waiting game. Anywhere from a few days to a few weeks and you’ll be able to celebrate your alcoholic achievement with a glass of your very own home-aged beer.
These barrels are made of brand-spanking-new Fresh American white oak and have a medium toast level inside.
Given the fact that no other liquid has ever been stored in the barrel, the effect of the oak on the beer you fill into it will be very strong. If you’re after creating your own beer into something oak-rich and powerful, this is good news. If you’re after adding a subtle barrel-aged note to a light and delicate ale, then it’s probably not a good thing – you’d be well advised to store some vodka or ‘something else’ in it for a couple of weeks first.
Want to add some cool stuff to your barrel to create a bespoke gift for Dad this Fathers Day?
No problemo we can pop in some very cool swing top bottles. 4 x 500ml bottles in each set for an extra £19.50. You can decant the whole barrel into these 4 beauties and either gift 'em out showing your mates how very cool you are... or just drink the beer yourself (we have yet to gift any).
Want to make those bottles look super fancy? We can print up 4 personalised labels for an extra £6.50. So basically get these and you have a brewery... with your name on it!
we also offer a glass tankard or wooden coaster, that can be personalised to match your barrel with the logo on. Why not buy the whole set!
- Kegs are charred on the inside to medium+

On receiving the cask the metal hoops may feel a tad loose, don’t worry – this is normal - they will tighten up as the wood expands after the cask is filled.
