The big barrel guy with a tap is called a cellar ghost and we’re made by my great grandad. There are only 3, 1x big one and 2x little ones. The big one is still on Durham st our family owns one of the small ones but unsure where the other is :)’

Dean, I believe its the same barrel man that now lives outside Vino Fino at 188 Durham Street

I remember this place as I use to take a shortcut through it and I always remember the the beer barrel man with the tap. I wonder whatever happened to him? Where could he be now?
