Beer Tasting: The Bruery
August 1, 2018 @ 6:30 pm - 8:00 pm
We love The Bruery here at Brasserie V, and boy howdy do we have the stockpile to prove it. In order to thin it out a little bit (you’re welcome), we’re offering up the chance for you to taste a whopping seven of their best beers all at one time for the low, low price of See Below. Check out the following details on the beers, and just give us a ring or stop in to reserve your spot!
Rueuze – 5.8% abv
Essentially a take on the traditional Belgian gueuze (see what they did there?) beers of the Pajottenland, this is a blend of sour golden ales aged in oak barrels for between one and three years. Sadly discontinued by the brewery, this remains a pinnacle of the American iteration.
Tart of Darkness – 7% abv
A sour stout? People thought Patrick Rue and company were nuts to do this, but it works. Essentially a basic-strenght oatmeal stout to start, the beer is then racked in oak barrels innoculated with The Bruery’s special blend of wild yeast and souring cultures.
The Wanderer – 8.3% abv
A wine barrel-aged brown ale with blackberries and cherries would have been delicious enough. But The Bruery then folded in a small portion of their bourbon barrel-aged anniversary strong ale, because they’re The Bruery and whatnot.
Anniversary Ale (Sucre/Cuivre/Poterie/Saule) mini-flight – between 15% and 16% abv
For nearly a decade now, The Bruery has released a very special beer for each anniversary. Basically a bourbon barrel-aged barleywine, they hold back a bit of the beer each year, then blend it back into a fresh batch the following year. We’re got a few bottles left of the last four vintages, and you’ll get to taste each of these side by side in a special mini-flight (about 2.5 ounces apiece).
