Black Tuesday – Rum Barrel Aged – 18.9% abv Reserve Society Exclusive (Limit 3)
This variation of Black Tuesday was aged in previously used rum barrels for an extended period of time. Still rich in notes of caramel, toasted malt, vanilla, burnt wood an anise, this variation has additional fruit and spice notes from the rum barrels.
Roble Blanco (Mystery Beer #1) 15% abv Limit: 4 bottles Reserve Society Exclusive
Living in Southern California, we’re huge fans of both Mexican cuisine and, of course, Mexican cocktails. This is a tribute to our favorite blended fiesta beverage, the Margarita. We aged this wheat-based beer in Tequila barrels for an extended period of time, lending warmth and a roasted agave character. Coupled with a slight lime tartness and a classic, salty finish, this brew is a great approximation of the refreshing summer afternoon Margarita.
Wineification II 13.7% abv Limit: 3 bottles Hoarders Society Exclusive
In this second rendition of Wineification, the Rues and Parkers continue to vanquish the boundaries between wine and beer. Again they have combined their brains and brawn on a blend of juicy Rodney’s Vineyard Petite Sirah grapes with The Bruery’s imperial stout, then aged this wine/beer hybrid in French Oak barrels. The flavor profile is remarkable. Notes of black cherry, vanilla, cinnamon, oak, aged balsamic, port wine and a sherry-like oxidation from the barrels. This beer is like nothing that you have ever tried before…besides, perhaps, Wineification I.
