Wooden You Know? Heavy Seas' Latest Barrel Experiment

Methinks these guys are trying for a lifetime membership in the Society for Preservation of Beers from the Wood.

Heavy Seas' latest wood-barrel-aging experiment is right in keeping with its pirate marketing theme: 75 barrels' worth of Plank I and Dubbel Cannon in five white oak rum barrels from Prichard's Distillery in Tennessee.  Expected release: mid-May (likely at the two festivals on May 14th, of course), and only locally in the Baltimore-DC region.

More on that beer here.

Heavy Seas also has a long list of upcoming events in May, including a beer dinner at Alexander's Tavern on May 4th,  the official release of Plank I at Max's on the 17th, and firkins and beer dinners in Mt. Airy, Frederick, and elsewhere.  Full list here.
