Boston Beer Co., maker of Sam Adams beers, is launching its first entry in the emerging craft spirits industry, producing two whiskeys in partnership with Berkshire Mountain Distillers in Great Barrington.
This is something we’ll definitely be keeping our eyes on. Distilling whiskey from beer seems interesting and is a new concept to us. This story from the Boston Globe mentions Rogue as an example of craft breweries distilling spirits, but we don’t know that their whiskeys are made from, say, their Dead Guy Ale. (If you’ve tried any Rogue whiskey, we would love to hear from you. We’ve had their rums, one of which we’ve really liked.) We tasted Berkshire Bourbon before, and will definitely be trying this whiskey when it is released, hopefully in about two years.
