This Friday, February 17, we are offering a special free tasting from The Bruery, featuring four of their most popular offerings.
The Bruery is a craft brewing company based in Placentia, California founded by Patrick Rue and named as a fusion between his family name and the word “brewery”. Renowned for their innovation on Old World practices, this Saturday, we will be sampling the following of their selections:
Batch No. 1731:
Batch No. 1731 is a 100% brettanomyces-fermented hoppy session ale created by homebrewer Kevin Osborne of Los Angeles. This complex yet quaffable winning entry puts El Dorado, Mosaic and Chinook hops on a pedestal as much as one possibly could. 5.1% ABV.
Rueuze is a take on the traditional Belgian-style blend of lambics of different ages. Carefully selected oak barrels were used to age and blend Bruery sours fore the ideal flavor. A complex beer with notes of hay, barnyard funk, apricots, and olives, playing wonderfully with balanced acidity. 6.0% ABV.
Tonnellerie Rue is a special variation of The Bruery’s rye saison that has been 100% fermented in oak barrels. Using this more traditional storage technique during the fermentation process adds further complexity to an already complex beer by allowing the natural yeast and bacteria, still nestled within the porous oak from previous fermentations, to eat away at the wort’s sugars while it slowly evolves into delicious beer. The final product is dry and earthy with a slight sour tinge, light rye spice and earthy funk. 8.5% ABV.
White Oak is a hardy, blended wheatwine-style ale, grafting elements reminiscent of caramel, vanilla, coconut and warm oak with the creamy complexity of wheat. Crisp effervescence spirals around sweet bourbon barrel-aged layers, expanding into a refreshingly robust ale. 12.5% ABV, 20 IBUs.
Tasting hours for this your choice free tasting event this Friday, February 17, will be from 4-6:45 pm, at Wyatt’s Outlaw Saloon, in the back of the store.
All participants must present valid I.D.
