)-- BRAIN Labs, LLC, a Portland, OR based company that manufacturers at-home spirit aging vessels today announced their donation to Habitat for Humanity Women Build.
BRAIN Labs, LLC donated a Whiskey Lab Double Barrel Gift Pack for auction at Habitat for Humanity Portland Metro/East Hard Hat & Black Tie Event. These unique vessels are designed for home enthusiasts to explore “barrel aging” whiskey or other spirits, without the barrel. The seventh annual event will be held at the Portland Art Museum Friday, October 6th.
Michelle Jariabka, Whiskey Labs co-founder describes how Whiskey Lab is making a difference, “We are a small startup but feel compelled to connect with our local community. Having a safe place to live and raise a family is dear to our hearts. Through this auction funds will be raised to help low income families build a home.”
Susie Vischer, former Habitat for Humanity Board Member and Current Women Build Committee Chair states, “Women Build is grateful for Whiskey Lab’s donation to support their Eat, Drink, Build silent auction package to help raise the walls of our fourteenth Portland home.”
Women Build works in affiliation with Habitat for Humanity Portland Metro/East and in partnership with a Habitat family. The Women Build model engages women volunteers of any skill level to plan, fundraise, and build a healthy and affordable home for an eligible family. Our efforts together can make a huge difference in the life of a local, low-income family. Through participating in this unique program, women gain skills and confidence in all aspects of the build while working primarily with an all women team of committee members, crew leaders, volunteers, and tradeswomen in a supportive, empowering building environment.

About BRAIN Labs
BRAIN Labs, LLC is the brain child of a group of five friends who met while in engineering school at the University of Colorado, Boulder. The group of friends and engineers set out to solve the problems they had experienced with other products for oak aging spirits at home—flavors that changed from weak to overwhelmingly woody, lack of complexity, and excessive evaporation. Along the way they tried many different solutions; getting together often to taste and discuss how to improve the process. When they settled on the design that was to become Whiskey Lab, they realized that they had something really special—a vessel that performs like the full-sized barrels used by distilleries, without the disadvantages of mini barrels and sticks.
