Proof66 Notes

Afterburner Bierschnapps is an impressively different liqueur in that is flavored with hops—a kind of beer-flavored liqueur—and bottled at a startling 101 proof, no doubt giving rise to the "afterburner" name. It is distilled from a base of "barley wine" (read: beer), which makes it one of the new-style, beer whiskeys on the market at its heart but here flavored and sweetened. They mention technical notes of 100% 2-row barley malt base with roasted C-60 Munich and De-bittered black, Centennial, and Willamette hops for flavor (no doubt interesting to beer enthusiasts but baffling to us).

Five & 20 Spirits and Brewing has its origins as a vineyard (Mazza Chautauqua Cellars) making wine in the Lake Erie region that gradually expanded into eau-de-vie production. They pride themselves on using local products and being a "grain to glass" distillery, meaning they control and undertake every phase of the distillation process from grinding the grain, to fermentation, to distillation, to bottling. They also pride themselves on true small-batch production and prove it with a very tiny 105 gallon still.
