Black Bear Bierschnaps is a collaboration with Upland Brewing Co. in Bloomington. This spirit is made with Upland’s Teddy Bear Kisses stout, which we brewed together with Upland brewers, then fermented and distilled on site at Cardinal Spirits.
We think bartenders and home drinkers alike will have fun with this curious, original spirit. It is smooth, chocolatey, malty and dry. Also, slightly bitter and lightly hopped. It drinks like an elixir, and it is warming, even when enjoyed ice cold.
