Hawryliw is the name of a liquor or liquor maker of the Twelve Colonies.
Leon Grimes uses a bottle of this to begin a physical altercation with Lee Adama, after Adama asks for Tom Zarek's speech to be turned off from the bar's wireless. To end the fight, Kara Thrace kicks this bottle over to Adama while pursing Valance, and Adama uses this bottle to great effect in a similar manner to a flashlight, but without the deadly result (TRS: "Colonial Day").
- This is named after Ken Hawryliw, the Re-imagined Series's and, later, Caprica's property master.
