I have a stout aging in a bourbon barrel, a saison with peaches in a brandy barrel and plan on fermenting a beer in a whisky barrel," Bucy said. Summer kept him busy and he looks forward to the slower Salvatore (Sam) Catalano September 13, 2015 season as an opportunity to experiment and create some new recipes. "I can't make huge volumes with the batch size being 20 gallons so I am going for variety and creativity," added ' Bucy. Lassen Ale Works is located in Uptown Susanville at the 150-year-old Pioneer Saloon. Its on-site brewery, run by brewmaster Erik Jefferts, produces eight house ales that run the gamut from light and refreshing Bizz Johnson Blonde to their hopped up Volcanic Double IPA to the "rip-snortin'" barrel-aged Devil's Corral Imperial Stout.
