    **************
    Several weeks earlier, Lary and Erica Hoffman —proprietors of spacebar — had traveled to Heavy Seas Brewery, in Halethorpe, Maryland. There, with the assistance of the brewery's cellarmaster —Stephen Marsh, the duo racked fresh beer into a firkin (10.8 gallon cask), added a small measure of freshly fermenting gyle for carbonation, and infused the ale with herbs, hops, and fruit of their choosing: Kaffir lime leaves, dried Maryland peaches, 'fish' peppers, and Simcoe and Citra hops.
