Bear Beer meets Whiskey.

Charbay is a small distillery from Napa County, nestled in the heart of California wine country. The family prides itself on being one of the early pioneers of the modern American craft spirits movement. They began distilling in 1983 after their founder Miles Karakasevic emigrated to the US and haven’t looked back, carrying on the family’s heritage of fermenting & distilling that dates back to 18th century Balkans. Miles is already a 12th generation master distiller. He knows a thing or two about crafting a decent Spirit — decent being the understatement of the year.

Their product line includes a whole range of different brews, from Vodka, Gin, Rum, Tequila, and Whiskey. The Karakasevic family is set on constant innovation and modification when it comes to the production of Spirits. Their Whiskey line is especially interesting since they manufacture their firewater from bottle-ready, fully matured beer. This interesting peculiarity was conceived by Miles’ son Marko, who is the main master distiller at Charbay nowadays.

While most people drank Beer in high school, Marko was distilling it. Now, Marko took his favorite Beer, Racer 5 IPA from Bear Republic, and distilled it into an intriguing Whiskey. Charbay Doubled And Twisted Lot No. 2 Whiskey is the love child of 4 years of extensive research and close cooperation with the Bear family. The Whiskey blend is aged in French and American oak, which means the final juice releases complex flavors from smoky, toasted vanilla to dark roasted coffee.

is the fermentation process by which a percentage of a previous fermentation is added to a new batch as a "starter" to get the fermentation going and maintain a level of consistency from batch to batch. A sweet mash means that only fresh yeast is added to a new batch to start fermentation.
Corn Whiskey is a commercial product that must contain at least 80% corn, be distilled at less than 80% ABV (160 proof), and, if wood-aged, may be aged in either used or new un-charred barrels.
Bourbon rules refer to manufacturing methods rather than location. Bourbon must be matured in new and charred American white oak casks for at least 2 years. If the bottle has no age statement, the Bourbon is at least 4 years old. No coloring or flavoring of any type is allowed, and the mash bill must contain at least 51% corn.
Rye Whiskey is made from mash that is at least 51 percent rye. The grain gives Rye Whiskey its spicy, sometimes peppery, and bitter flavor. It was a big seller before Prohibition, and after decades in obscurity, it’s fashionable again. Fun fact: George Washington distilled Rye Whiskey at Mount Vernon.
Tennessee Whiskey closely parallels Bourbon, but final filtering through sugar-maple charcoal (called the Lincoln County Process) is what some producers say differentiates them. Tennessee Whiskey’s finish is sweeter and smoother than Bourbon.
George Washington was a man of many talents being both a military braniac and the First President of the United States. Interestingly, he also became the largest Whiskey producer in the United States after leaving the politics.
