Transforming elements into transcendent spirits.

Barley Shine

Ever wonder what your favorite beers would taste like if they were made into a moonshine? Well, wonder no more because we’ve done it! We take the wort (liquid extracted from mashing) from a locally-brewed beer, then ferment and distill it to make our smooth Barley Shine.

Barley Shine tastes most like a smooth Vodka with grain notes, and has a wonderful aftertaste of the malted barley. This is a truly unique spirit that isn’t like anything else on the market.

Cascade Alchemy Barley Shine is distilled on-site using our 100 gallon still and 55 gallon thumper. Come on by when we’re running it for a taste of the new make coming right off the still. It’s amazing how the flavors change over time, even on a shine! Come on by for sip and take a bottle home to share.

Barley Shine is only available for purchase at our distillery retail room due to being produced in small batches.
