The Bruery Smokey and The Bois, Atomic Kangarue and Befuddlement Go On Sale This Month
(Placentia,CA) – The Bruery of Placentia, CA has unveiled 3 new beers to their Reserve and Hoarders Society clubs today. Read about details on Smokey and The Bois, Atomic Kangarue and Befuddlement. Cheers!
The Rare Beer Club worked personally with The Bruery to develop this beer, sampling a large number of blends at our barrel warehouse before we all reached a unanimous and very enthusiastic decision on the final blend.
Smokey and the Bois is crafted from three different beers: Black Tuesday (The Bruery’s infamous ~20% ABV imperial stout), Bois (an exceptional, bourbon-barrel-aged old ale), and Smoking Wood (an imperial rye porter brewed with beech- and cherrywood smoked malts). And, for even more dimension and complexity, Smokey and the Bois has been aged with vanilla beans and Ecuadorian Nacional cacao nibs.
We’ve been friends with the folks at Smog City for many years and getting to brew a beer with them was a dream come true. Truly, only in the world of dreams could this remarkable beer have been manifested. A Belgian-style golden ale, brewed with Semillon and Viognier grapes plus three types of hops, fermented with Brettanomyces Trois as well as our house yeast strain, then blended with a sour blonde ale and finally dry-hopped with Amarillo hops. This beer couldn’t be more complex and we couldn’t be more proud of it.
Befuddlement is a Hoarders Society exclusive blend of our Sour In The Rye and our bourbon barrel aged old-ale, Sucré, with the addition of an incredible number of boysenberries. This deep purple beer is textured with sweet notes of caramelized malts, spicy rye, oak, juicy berries and a pleasantly sour funk. It’s a rather befuddling meld of flavors with an outcome that we couldn’t enjoy more.
