Most of the members in our club do this.  It's called a "Hot Scotchy". 
Kegs:
 Red IPA
 ESB
 Saison Solera
 Dubel (Aged in Malbec Wine Barrel
Aging:
 80 Shilling (In bourbon barrel)
Bottled
 Peppermint Patty Stout
 Wee Heavy

My experience from various brew pubs is that it is drawn from the mash as it is being transferred to the boil kettle.  The Scotch takes care of any sanitize issues.  But in the end it is all the celebration of beer making.  Cheers.
