Founders Brewing Co. has been aging beer in bourbon barrels since 2001.

The growth of Founders barrel program from a single barrel to the thousands currently in production will be discussed in detail, including theoretically hilarious hijinks and problems we’ve encountered with ongoing expansion of both volume and brands produced.
