Mass produced beer is cheap, quick and watery - and none of us with an acquired taste wants to drink that. The big boys may be able to produce top dollar Super Bowl commercials but they compromise with subpar ingredients.
Let’s be honest, craft beer takes time, patience and money to produce a top quality brew. You’re in the craft brewing space because you celebrate innovation, community and creativity. And yes, the hallmark of a successful release is people lined up around the block. For you, it’s about more - creating something that has never been done before.
You wouldn’t settle for barley or hops that wouldn’t get the job done. So why not get the best? Here at Midwest Barrel Co., we believe our barrels are the key ingredient for your success.
Damn. Good. Barrels.
At Midwest Barrel Co. we take pride in doing things right. Simply put, that means our customers get the right barrel at the right time, by people who actually give a damn. It’s our promise.
“Over the past six years, we’ve seen a dramatic reduction in problematic leaks and lost ZERO barrels to infection. Coupled with their excellent service and selection, Midwest Barrel Co. should be the first place any barrel wrangler looks to start, grow or optimize their program.”
- Marty Scott, Head of Barrel-Aging at Revolution Brewing
