Oak Barrels

Looking to get another barrel and stumbled across this site. Wondering if anyone has ordered from them. $130 for a 5 gallon chared barrel delivered seems like a pretty good price.

Seem similar to the Mexican barrels.

I purchased similar barrels and with similar prices a couple years ago out of Texas but can't add the link at this time as I don't have it on hand with the iPad.

Thanks guys.

Bushman,
Any issues with the barrels?

Gman,
I like the Gibbs barrels but the price with shipping is almost 50% more ($190). Trying to figure out if it is worth 50% extra.

These guys are out of West Virginia, so I doubt they're connected to Texas or Mexico. They seem a bit pricey for the hobby market. For that price I can get a keg with a 4" flange and two 1-inch NPT short couplings welded in place. And change...

Not really after several uses one of the barrels spigots has a small drip maybe 3 times a day so I have to fix that but they have almost run their course.
