Railroad Brewing Co. is starting to barrel age.

The Avon brewery will begin by putting its Tender Blonde ale in a bourbon barrel next week. Tender Blonde is the railroad-themed brewery's best seller.

Brewer Jerome Moore also wants to age his Coal Train stout and Crooked Rail maple brown ale in bourbon barrels. He said he'd also like to obtain some wine barrels from local wineries to experiment.

Asked why Railroad wants to barrel age, Moore replied: "We haven't had the chance to do it until now. Been busy making beers."

The brewery opened earlier this year.
