The Bruery – Special & Rare Bottle Pours
June 13, 2018 @ 4:00 pm - 11:00 pm
We’re big fans of The Bruery here at Brasserie V, and boy do we have A LOT of their beer. They make some of the best sour, strong, and farmhouse ales in the country, but because they package exclusively in 750ml bottles, we understand it can be difficult to pull the trigger on a beer that you maybe have never tried before. To which we say: We got you, fam.
For this night only–well, until the next time we decide to do this–we’ll make all of our Bruery bottles available for sampling in 4.5oz pours. There’s a wide array of beers here, but we have a very limited amount of some of them, so get here on time if you want to choose from the full range. Cheers!
Autumn Maple – Strong Belgian brown ale with molasses, spices and yams. Brewed for the fall season, but delicious year round. 10% abv
Beret – Oak aged wheat ale naturally soured with a propriety mixed culture, then topped off with a small amount of raspberries. 8.6% abv
Frucht (Blueberry) – Sour wheat ale aged on oak barrels with blueberry. 4.8% abv
Gypsy Tart – A nod to Belgian oud bruins, this lightly tart dark ale is surprisingly easy to drink, given the strength. 8.4% abv
Humulus Terreux – Golden ale 100% fermented with brettanomyces, then dry hopped. 6% abv
Oude Tart – One of The Bruery’s original mega-hype beers, this Flanders-style red ale is aged on oak barrels with souring cultures. Notes of tart cherry, raspberry jam, and Warhead candy. 8% abv
Rueuze – Sadly no longer in production (replaced by the admittedly exquisite Train to Beersel), this Pajottenland-style beer blends several vintages of oak-aged sour golden ales. 5.8% abv
Saison Rue – Belgian style amber saison bottle conditioned with brettanomyces. Notes of dried citrus and farmhouse character. 8% abv
Tonnellerie Rue – Saison Rue fermented in oak barrels with mixed cultures. 8% abv
Tart of Darkness – A standard stout base, this beer is then aged in innoculated oak barrels and allowed to naturally sour. 7% abv
Various Anniversary Ales – Each year, The Bruery releases their Anniversary Ale, a blended, barrel-aged strong ale using the solera method. We have a few different vintages of this as well, and then they’re gone, they are gone for good.
