The Bruery Black Tuesday Info and Other Reserve Society Info
We have gotten a few pieces of the puzzle for The Bruery’s Upcoming Black Tuesday Release as well as info on more Reserve Society Releases. Black Tuesday is a massive Imperial Stout that was voted Best Imperial Stout by you, the readers of TheFullPint.com Here is a press release passed along by a Reserve Society with tons of interesting tidbits.
From The Bruery –
We know you’ve been patiently awaiting the next releases for Reserve Society members, so here’s a little calendar for what we have lined up.
The first round of releases will be available for purchase online on Wednesday, August 11th and will include:
⁃ 100% Barrel Fermented Autumn Maple – Our fall seasonal barrel fermented with brettanomyces and aged for 10 months in previously used bourbon barrels. Rich, funky and satisfying, this beer has become a Bruery staff favorite. $20/bottle
⁃ Provisions Series: Gunga Galunga – A black beer with Thai influence. Brewed with brettanomyces, kaffir lime leaves and galangal (also known as Thai Ginger, but it’s not too ginger-like), this smooth, dry and roasty beer has clear notes of fresh citrus, crushed herbs and will complement a spicy curry beautifully. $15/bottle
⁃ Provisions Series: Premiére: This Bourbon Barrel Aged Belgian Golden Strong will serve as the commemorative beer for the opening of our new Tasting Room/Bottle Shop location in Old Towne Orange, but we wanted to give you the first chance to try it. $15/bottle
Each beer will have a 3 bottle purchase maximum and your 15% membership discount will be applied. The anticipated release date is late September.
On September 15th, Reserve Society members will have the opportunity to purchase the following beers:
⁃ Black Tuesday: A beer that needs no introduction. $30/bottle
⁃ Vitis Series: Sour Grapes – A dry and vinous beer with hinst of smokiness and a touch of oak. First running press of Pinot Noir grapes from Santa Barbara County were added to a year old blonde sour ale (called by many names around here, one you may be familiar with is Cuvee Jeune) and fermented together in stainless. The grape beer was then transferred to wine barrels and aged for 10 months. The beer is pleasantly tart, complex and refreshing; it can easily substitute a sparkling wine for any celebration. $20/bottle
Each beer will have a 2 bottle purchase maximum and your 15% membership discount will be applied. All 2010 Reserve Society members will also automatically receive 1 bottle of Black Tuesday in addition to their purchase as part of their current membership. These beers will be released in late October.
