Default Commercially-distilled beer

Pumpkin Spirit

Apparently they took Lakefront's Pumpkin Lager and distilled it. Anyone try this? Anyone know of any other distilled beer? I've wondered about distilling beer but never knew anyone did it. I'm gonna have to see if I can find some.

I'm not exactly sure if this one is related (other than the name) to the actual beer, but I know Rogue makes a Dead Guy whiskey. I was going to order a bottle, but never got around to it.

did a quick search, seems like they use the same 4 malts as dead guy, but in a traditional whiskey making process.

it seems that the lakefront stuff, they took finished beer that would otherwise be bottled and dumped it into the still.

so, anyone actually buy this?

also i've found out that it isn't just straight pre-bottled pumpkin lager. Lakefront brews some without hops, as they apparently made it bitter.

the first batch (2010?) was straight pre-bottled beer, with hops. this year they've decided to modify.

thanks for saving me some typing.

I'm interested in:

1. Has anyone ever tried the COMMERCIALLY distilled Pumpkin Spirit offered by the LICENSED DISTILLERY Great Lakes?

2. Does anyone know of any other LICENSED DISTILLERY doing something similar (LEGALLY distilling a previously-commercialized beer)?

interesting, i did look up charbay. seems it's made from a pilsner. also seems its $325 for a 750mL. way too rich for me.

well, i just bought some! $40, a little more than the MSRP of $35 (Otto's in Cedarburg is always expensive....), but i think it's worth it for 90 proof bierschnapps!

as it's about 11am, i haven't tried it yet. but soon.

It's Saturday! 11am is the perfect time for bierschnapps! I'm pretty sure it's a breakfast digestif in the motherland.

Can't wait to hear what you think. Not that I'm likely to find such a thing out here.

I think technically it should be the Fatherland with Germany
