The last (few) beers I had, news, and a few other gems…

Hello all you micro beer folks!

First and foremost, the new Bruery Tasting Room is open! 7 days a week! For more information: check the Bruery for more info on whats flowing.

PS: Had a 4 oz pour of Coton, amazing. Chocolate Rain, Black Tuesday and Cuir are flowing on tap as well…

Second, I happen to be at the BJ’s in Brea a few weeks back for a happy hour adult beverage and stumbled across a Dogfish Head 120 minute IPA. What, you ask is a 120 minute IPA? Continue reading

Happy New Year!

Happy New Year everyone!  Johnny Walker Red, Coronado Idiot (5 caps, see earlier post), The Bruery Mischeif Belgian style(3 caps) and Stone Imperial Black IPA (4 caps)since the last post.  Doing well @ poker, can’t talk now.  Try to get one more in before I call it quits.  Wishing you all a prosperous and healthy New Year.

The last beer I had…

was La Citrueille, Celeste de Citracado which is a Stone Collaboration with The Bruery and Elysian Brewing Company. This ale is brewed with pumpkin, yams, toasted fenugreek, lemon verbena and birch bark. Not your typical ingredients but quite tasty, not too very bitter and an ABV at 5.0%.

Fenugreek – Trigonella foenum-graecum) is a plant in the family Fabaceae. Fenugreek is used both as a herb (the leaves) and as a spice (the seed, often called methi in Urdu/Hindi/Nepali). The leaves and sprouts are also eaten as vegetables. The plant is cultivated worldwide as a semi-arid crop and is a common ingredient in many curries.

Lemon verbena –Aloysia citrodora is a species of flowering plant in the verbena family, Verbenaceae, that is native to Argentina, Paraguay, Brazil, Uruguay, Chile, Bolivia, and Peru. Common names include Lemon Verbena and Lemon Beebrush.[2] It was brought to Europe by the Spanish and the Portuguese in the 17th century.

You can find it at BevMo, Bruery Provisions, and Total Wine and Spirits

Black Tuesday, yes that Black Tuesday

Hello out there:

So I was able to be lucky enough to place an order for a bottle of Black Tuesday from The Bruery on Tuesday and pick it up yesterday at Provisions in Orange. Lucky for me Provisions was doing 2 oz pours of Black Tuesday to promote this epic beer. This is a porter that will kick you in the face if you are not nice to it. It packs a wallop at 18.3%, no joke. Definitely a sipping beer to enjoy with those beer buddies you love so well. Until next time folks.
