The Bruery Taps Invade Brew Wednesday To Celebrate Two Virginia Debuts

The Bruery logo2Head over to Brew in Chesterfield tomorrow Wednesday, September 17th as they host The Bruery CFO Carl Katz as their guest for a tap takeover featuring two beers making their Virginia debut. Brew will also tap some Bruery beers they have been holding in their cellar for just such an event.

There will be a charity raffle for several special Bruery bottles to benefit Liam’s Lighthouse Foundation fight against Hemophagocytic Lymphohistiocytosis (HLH), a life-threatening immunodeficiency. Raffle tickets are $5 each; the drawings will be held at 7pm for these rare bottles. 

Here are the beers to be tapped at 6pm:

  • Melange #3 – a blend of Sucre, White Oak Sap, and Black Tuesday — VA debut
  • Atomic Kangarue – a sour blonde ale brewed with Semillon and Viognier grapes and dry-hopped with Amarillo hops — VA debut
  • Sour in the Rye – an American Wild Ale brewed with a substantial amount of rye malt and soured in red wine barrels
  • Oude Tart – a Flemish Red ale aged in red wine barrels for 18 months
  • Tart of Darkness – a soured low alcohol stout aged in second use barrels from Black Tuesday (their Imperial Stout aged over a year in bourbon barrels)
  • Smoking Wood – an imperial porter brewed with a good amount of smoked malt and then barrel aged
  • Sucre – an old ale made for their anniversary brewed using the Solera Method so every batch continues with a piece of the previous batch
  • Hottenroth – a low alcohol, tart, German-style wheat ale.  Brew will have a couple of house-made syrups to show the German tradition of serving this style with a flavored syrup.
  • Mischief  – a Belgian-style golden ale with strong American hops over top of the spicy, fruity yeast strain powering the flavor
  • Autumn Maple – a big fall seasonal made with yams, cinnamon, nutmeg, allspice, vanilla, molasses, and maple syrup

Although Wednesday is Brew’s growler fill special day, there will be no fills of these beers for the evening. Head over to the Facebook event for more information and updates.  Maybe I’ll see you there.

The Bruery Is The Answer At Mekong Tonight

The Bruery logo2The Bruery, out of Orange County, CA, is by far one of my most favorite breweries around.  My favorite brew from them has to be Autumn Maple; I mean yams and maple syrup in a beer, come on!  Side note: check out all of these recipes using their beers!

Naturally, I’m ecstatic to try the selection Mekong has chosen for a mini tap takeover tonight Wednesday June 19th featuring six of their beers plus a special Andall.  Many of these beers are competely new to me so that is an absolute bonus. 

Here are the beers they will be tapping at 5pm starting off with The Bruery’s fifth anniversary beer, Bois:

Bois – 5th Anniversary beer – 15.5% Olde Ale
White Oak – Wheatwine aged in Bourbon Barrel
Hottenroth – 3.1% Berliner Weisse
Rugbrod – Danish Rye
Trade Winds – Tripel with Thai Basil
Humulus Lager – Hoppy Lager or IPA with Lager yeast
Hottenroth Andall with fresh peaches
