Shannon Harris is in full pursuit of every homebrewer’s dream: his very own craft brewery. To turn his goal from dream to reality, this social media maven used a Kickstarter campaign for the initial funds. Moving beyond just appreciating craft beer for its taste, he now truly studies the artistry for the perfect pour. After countless home brews, craft brew collaborations, and social media experimentation, Shannon is about to solidify himself even further as a leader in the brewing industry. He’s poised to open the first black-owned craft brewery in Austin — Urban Jungle Brewing, coming 2021.
To help you avoid endless internet searches and bad advice, we have curated some of the BEST resources. Whether this is your first time barrel-aging or you are an experienced pro, we are here to help. Need more than an article or a video? Talk to our staff brewer - Nick.
We all know making great craft beer isn’t quite as simple as just picking up a DIY homebrew kit at the store. It takes the right tools, strategy and patience to master the art AND science. But once that’s done, it’s actually pretty simple to up your homebrew game with barrel-aging. Our job is to help you make craft - not crap - so your friends stop by every time you are ready to release your next garage brew!
Damn. Good. Barrels.

Whether your goal is to win awards for the best homebrew craft beer or bring the hype to the neighborhood block party, don’t miss your defining key ingredient: the barrel. Freshly-emptied barrels are sure to add depth, flavor and uniqueness to every small batch you produce.
