Friend Owned & Trusted
Few high school friendships can stand the test of time. Fortunately for founders Matt Thomas and Pat Tramontano, their shared passion for craft beer and barrels, accelerated by the spirit of entrepreneurship, has evolved into both an indestructible friendship and prosperous business partnership since the days of old. The foundation of Northeast Barrel Company is rooted in a mutual love and appreciation for the barrel aging process – not only the ways in which a barrel can impart distinct flavors, textures, and aromas to its inhabitants but also the ways in which different cultures and traditions across the globe can influence the composition and utilization of the barrels; thus making each one truly unique. We know barrels are important – particularly for brewers, distillers, and vintners alike. And something this important doesn’t simply get built and tossed away like an old pair of shoes. Every barrel has a story to tell and we strive to tell those stories as authentically as possible.
At the heart of our business is an uncompromising commitment to consistently provide our customers with premium grade barrels that will successfully transform their product into something complex, unique, and flavorful. We’ve got a dedicated team of barrel wranglers that go directly to the source - no matter where - to find our customers the finest barrels. Often times this means flying all over the world, meeting with locals, learning about new processes as well as centuries-old traditions, and taste testing barrel-aged products. The insight gained during these trips is invaluable and underpins our ability to help customers achieve their desired results. We believe the winning combination of a successful barrel program is comprised of high quality barrels and top-notch expertise – both of which can be found in abundance at Northeast Barrel Company.
Why Northeast Barrel Company?
All of our barrels are 100% authentic and derived directly from the source. A significant difference between Northeast Barrel Co. and some of our competitors is that we do not infuse flavors into any of our barrels. This allows your product to absorb the natural flavor profiles contained in the wood. We believe in honesty and transparency to deliver you a product that keeps to what true craft is all about.
We are driven by an uncompromising commitment to quality. With several protocols in place, our team of barrel-aging experts meticulously inspects each and every barrel that enters our warehouse to ensure our standards of quality are routinely met. Quality control is at the core of our business and enables us to consistently deliver high quality barrels in a timely manner.
The art and science of barrel aging requires a great deal of know-how and can seem like a daunting task to even the most adventurous alchemists. Our knowledge and experience enables us to fully understand and appreciate the complex intricacies of this process. We are committed to lending our expertise to help our customers achieve their own level of mastery as well as their desired end product.
