Charbay Whiskey S
Whiskey Distilled From Fully Brewed Stout
In 2011 Marko became intrigued with the idea of distilling a whiskey from one of his favorite dark beers, Bear Republic’s Big Bear Black Stout. Made with over five different malts, Centennial and Cascade Hops, and at 8.1%, it sure had plenty to be curious about. If a distinctive flavor, far from the tried and true, makes you excited, this hopped whiskey distilled from Stout will be to your liking.

Marko on making Stout Whiskey
“Single malts only use a single malt—this Stout has over five different malts, as well as adjuncts and several different hop varieties. All of these qualities come through into an extremely complex whiskey.”
