This week, whiskey will take over Beer Sessions Radio! Chris Weld and Michael Kowalski from Berkshire Mountain Distillers – Massachusett’s first legal distillery since prohibition – grab the mic to tell us about the Craft Brewers Whiskey Project, and all that brews into the best beer-based whiskey.
Also on this episode is Nick Smith of Otter Creek Brewing Company – one of the project’s collaborators. Nick reminisces on the day he got a bottle back from Berkshire before discussing with the gang what the best beer is for making whiskey, and how distillation brings out the best in beer. Jimmy finally gets his job back with a conversation on corn whiskey, revealing Chris’s secret at his distillery.
Last but not least, Michael will expand on Berkshire’s collaborator approach with their retailer and restaurant partners, along with his efforts to show off their whiskey through engaging tasting sessions. Chris will also introduce us to their on-premise charity event, which features barrels from local brewers.
