As soon as the original Pinhook labels come back from the letterpress, we will dump the panel’s barrel pick, bottle its contents at cask strength in the original Pinhook bottles, and then sell this very special True Single Barrel online, dedicating all of the profits to micro-loans the James Beard Foundation Food and Beverage Industry Relief Fund is extending to restaurants and bars during COVID-19.

We will email you all along the way with the date for this very special bottling, the barrel’s proof and bottle yield and -- of course -- details on how the online bottle sale will work, the goal being to maximize the dollars raised to support the service industry.
