Last summer, The Bruery released the very decadent White Chocolate to the members of The Reserve Society. We’ve just heard the good news from The Bruery’s social media outlets that they will be also selling some to the public at their tasting room in Placentia, CA. Starting Monday, you will be able to hopefully snag a bottle for $30. I was able to try a friends bottle of this batch, and I’ve decided it it’s something I’d much rather drink fresh. The vanilla bean really pops out of this guy, and really does capture your imagination in regards to a treat that tastes like White Chocolate.
Here’s The Bruery’s Description.
“Essentially a summer barley-wine style ale, but made with a wheat heavy grain base, the primary component of White Chocolate is a beer that we affectionately refer to as “White Oak Sap” as it is 100% bourbon barrel aged and is the wheat wine component of our White Oak ale. After nearly a year in used bourbon barrels, the beer comes out rich in coconut, honey, caramel and vanilla. To compliment the already rich flavors of this beer, we’ve added cacao nibs and fresh vanilla beans to give this beer the delicate flavor of white chocolate…hence the name.”
