Doc Brewer and the Day of Birth
The legendary Whiskey Visionary of Blackfish Spirits Distillery knows how to properly celebrate his birthday: with a fresh cask of his very own Rye Whiskey!
Dr. Larry “Doc” Brewer, MD, FACOG, is a real doctor, and Brewer really is his name. He is no mere marketing stunt to give our whiskey that medicinal edge. In fact, there’s nothing medicinal about this stuff at all, but it is damn good. As doctor school teaches, a whiskey a day is a pretty great day. Well May 26th is this doctor’s birthday, so he’ll be drinking a lot of whiskey.
Doc Brewer has been cultivating his palette for hooch since the age of 11. 70 years later, he’s developed a signature flavor that takes him right back to those halcyon days of pre-adolescent tomfoolery. But don’t let his mischievous ways fool you, because Doc Brewer’s not just some lush with a lofty title.
That long suffix after Doc Brewer’s name means he is an esteemed Fellow of the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists. He recieved his degree from the University of Iowa, where he is originally from, then relocated to Spokane, Washington, and got to work. When not delivering untold thousands of babies and kickstarting midwifery programs that have had an immeasurable lasting impact and saved more lives than we can count, he spent his time with his wife Luretta and two daughters, Carrie and Sue, on their ranch in Hangman Valley (You might not recognize the name, but if you’ve had the good doctor’s whiskey, you’ve seen his ranch).
Doc Brewer has practiced medicine throughout Washington, but he ain’t done yet. He’s taking his expertise to new levels at our distillery, where he gets to work every day with his four grandsons, his daughter Carrie and his son-in-law Mike. His rye whiskey is already a local favorite, and soon enough he will be delivering his proprietary bourbon recipe to a very thirsty and much deserving public. In addition, keep an eye out for Doc Brewer’s shrub cordials, coming soon to a liquor cabinet near you.
In celebration of this momentous birthday occasion, we’re cracking open a barrel of Doc Brewer’s Rye Whiskey and passing this doctor-recommended panacea on to you! Splash it on some ice cream cake and raise a toast to Doc Brewer. Now raise another for good measure.
Happy Birthday, Doc Brewer!
Keep Your Fin Up!
