The next meeting of the Rum Barrel Hops Review Board will be on April 2 at 7 p.m. at the Rum Barrel.
The rotating 5- to 7-member panel of Rum Barrel regulars, fans and beer connoisseurs meets every quarter, or three to four months, to decide what bottled craft beers and beer on-tap will be served at our Key West bar for the next quarter. The panel does blind taste tests on up to a dozen beers and rates each one. The top four or five beers are selected for future serving.
“We wanted to provide customers with a rotating selection, rather than the standard fare, because there are a lot of new beers always coming out. We also wanted people to feel part of the process,” said Rum Barrel Bar Manager Robbie Riley.
