The Bruery. Facebook. Discuss!

Now that our Facebook page is up and running and some of you have become fans, we can utilize the discussion boards as a forum to talk all things Bruery and beer.

We’ve taken the liberty of beginning a few threads, including a discussion about distribution and where Bruery beer is available to you. 

Also, for all you homebrewers and anyone who’s interested in learning a little more about the process of brewing, we’ve added an “Ask the Brewer” thread in which our very own brewers will be available to answer your questions.  So whether you’ve hit a snag with your own recipe or you just want to know how we brew your favorite Bruery beer, this is a good place to visit. 

You can also start your own threads on anything you may be interested in, so look us up on Facebook and let us know what kinds of beer related topics you’d like to talk about!

A New Twist on St. Patrick's.

It's late February, and you know what that means - St. Patrick’s Day is rapidly approaching!  For the holiday that honors the Emerald Isle, Irish food, Irish music, and of course, Irish beer are typically the tradition.  This year though, The Bruery is inviting you to enjoy our own twist on this historically Irish holiday.

 In the spirit of our Belgian-Style brewery, we will be holding a Belgian saint’s day.  We’ll be honoring the patron saint of Belgian brewers, St. Veronus, with a lively event featuring some Belgian snacks and cheeses, and of course, our Belgian-Style brews!  We’ll even be breaking out a very special new beer for the celebration that will surely add a little extra excitement.  More details on that to come. 

 The event will take place on Saturday, March 14th from 2 – 6 pm, so you’ll have plenty of time to celebrate St. Pat’s the Irish way afterwards or on St. Patrick’s Day itself.  So before you go out for corned beef and Irish dancing, be sure to stop by the The Bruery and enjoy some Belgian traditions too!

Tasting Room, February 20 & 21

We've just installed our new cold room and as a result have had to change around our tasting room layout.  In the near future we will be installing a swank new bar setup into the cold room, but for this week we've done our best to meld the new and the old.  Here's the menu for this weekend:
Hope to see you here!

Valentine's Day at The Bruery

Not sure where to take your valentine before that nice dinner?  Come by The Bruery from 2-6pm on Saturday and enjoy some complimentary (and complementary) cheese and chocolate fondue with our fantastic beers!  Cheese...chocolate...beer...what more can you want?!?

Well, how about a NEW beer?  We'll also be doing a special pre-release of our spring seasonal, Saison De Lente.  Light blonde in color with a fresh hoppiness and a wild and rustic Brettanomyces character, this beer is ideal for spring.  It's lighter in color and alcohol than our Saison Rue, yet equally complex in its own way and perfect for warmer weather (ABV: 6.5%, IBU: 35, SRM: 4).
