The Whiskey Krew

At Whiskey and a Hammock, we are whiskey connoisseurs participating, studying and critiquing a variety of whiskeys while taking you on a #whiskeyventure. Imagine any adventure that involves whiskey and ends with relaxing in a hammock while enjoying your #whiskeyview.

We inspire relaxation with a glass of whiskey and our customers become part of our Whiskey Krew!

Our passion is to help people know how whiskey is made, blended and how to fully appreciate the taste and value of what you’re drinking.

Get started by watching our reviews on our site or go to our YouTube channel. We help you discover the world of whiskey with distillery tours, new products and honest independent reviews.

Kris Kolacz

Self-proclaimed rebel and trouble maker, never been fond of rules. Full of drive and tenaciousness that drives people crazy. Fighting all my life to tame my creative streak that loves to run rampant. Father of four rugrats that drive me to my wits end and I wouldn’t have it any other way. The real anchor is my beautiful wife that reels me in when I’m way off on a tangent. Love the outdoors, riding motorcycles, dirt bikes, hotrods and hiking up mountains while grounded in a strong Christian faith.

Erik Erstad comes from the land of 1 tree, and wandering bi(z)on, North Dakota. Erik is a dad of 2 kickass kids and husband to his military sweetheart. During the day Erik drives truck for UPS. When he’s not at work he enjoys spending time with his family, going to his kids sporting events and being as active as possible. When it comes time to relax on the weekends he’ll enjoy a nice whiskey while relaxing in his hammock.
