Theme Day: Work!
I have actually posted a couple of pics of me at work so as some of you may know, I am the Head Distiller for a brewpub chain here in the NW called McMenamins. The Distillery's top-selling product, which I spend most of my days producing, is Hogshead Whiskey. We age the whiskey in new, charred American white oak barrels for 5 years.
Here I am in the barrel room doing what I always do on Wednesday mornings, searching for leaky barrels (leaks are pretty common, so much so that there are people that make their living just searching for leaks in barrel warehouses in Kentucky).
Sometimes finding a leak is not such a bad thing. Cheers!
