Brewers rolling out the barrels for holidays
Tennessee beer makers go all-in for aging in alcohol-soaked casks
It’s late November, and Matt Simpson is brewing a Belgian-style beer at Nashville’s Tennessee Brew Works in preparation for the 2022 holiday sales season.
Once the beer is finished in the fermenter, it will go into whiskey barrels to absorb flavor and a bit of alcohol from the spirits that once were in the casks. The beer will stay in the barrels until it achieves the flavor that the brewer imagined, determined by the brewers sampling beer from the barrels on a regular basis.

During your working years, you’ve probably met the costs of living through your salary. But once you retire, where will the money come from? Is there a way to give yourself a “paycheck” for retirement?
There is indeed – but you’ll have to do a good job of managing your available income sources. Here are some moves that can help:
Personal Finance: 401(k)-to-IRA rollover could be a mistake
If you leave a job or retire, you’re often encouraged to roll over your 401(k) or other workplace retirement account into an individual retirement account. That might not be the right move.
Workplace plans have rules that can protect you from subpar investments and advisers who put their own interests ahead of yours. IRA investments can be more expensive, which can result in less money to spend in retirement. Workplace plans also may offer easier access to your money.
