Starting at 7 pm on Thursday the 14th, we'll have an impressive selection of beers that have made their way here all the way from the OC:
The Bruery Orchard White (Placentia, CA; $6/12 oz). Orchard White is an unfiltered Belgian-style witbier, spiced with coriander, citrus peel, and lavender. A spicy, fruity yeast strain is used to add complexity, and rolled oats are added for a silky texture. 5.7% ABV.
The Bruery 2 Turtle Doves (Placentia, CA; $7/12 oz). 2 Turtle Doves is the second in The Bruery's 12 Days/Years of Christmas series. The beer is based on "turtle" candy, with cocoa nibs, toasted pecans, caramelized sugar, and a lot of caramel malts. It's somewhere between a Belgian-style dark strong ale and an imperial porter. 12.0% ABV.
The Bruery Hottenroth (Placentia, CA; $6/12 oz). This tart German-style Berliner Weisse is The Bruery's strictly authentic version of a nearly extinct beer style. The brewers use lactobacillus and a hint of brettanomyces to sour this very unusual, low-gravity wheat beer. 3.1% ABV.
The Bruery Rugbrod (Placentia, CA; $6/12 oz). Brewed with three types of rye malt, this robust brown ale showcases the earthy, spicy character of dark whole-grain Danish rye ("rugbrod" means "rye bread" in Danish). It's complemented by bready, nutty barley malts and a hint of roast. Loosely based on the Scandinavian Christmas beer or "Julebryg" tradition, this beer is perfect for the colder weather of winter. 8.0% ABV.
These beers will all be $1 off all night, and we'll be giving out free tastings as well. Finally, we might be tossing around some free coasters, patches, and pint glasses, among other things. It's an event well worth your time.
