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 the 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 bar manager Robbie Riley.
