Barrel-Finished Bier Schnapps
Our Bier Schnapps series celebrates a relatively unheard of spirit outside of the brewers in Germany. We distill a beer into a brandy of sorts and then bottle it in a clear or barreled version. We love the opportunity to collaborate with our local brewers to create this unique, tasty spirit from their craft beers. Our inaugural series, which has long since sold out, was the Breakaway Spirit. Distilled from American Brewing Company's Breakaway IPA, this spirit was flavorful, full-bodied, and hoppy with a malty sweetness. This small batch release was a partnership with 20 Corners Brewing in Woodinville. The partnership started with donated beer during the pandemic when we were sourcing beer going bad and making it into sanitizer. This batch was created from thier last delivery after we stopped producing the sanitizer and decided to intentionally distill it to age in barrel. It sat in a multiple times used barrel for 2 years. Similar to our Breakaway project, you can identify the hops on the nose from the IPA beer. Nice layers of whiskey notes prevail however. Only 90 bottles are available, so act fast.
