Recipe: ¡Bionicos del Cesar!

Here at The Bruery we love our fruit in beer. So much so, that it’s difficult think of what to do with it when we’re not putting it in beer. And we’re not too keen on garnishing the sides of our tulip glasses with fruit either.

So what can we actually do with fruit that doesn’t involve randalls, aging, ninja slicing, and racking?

I used to hang out with my dad on the "mean" streets of Los Angeles. Being a kid, I was hungry every 5 minutes. That meant my dad would have to find food quickly that I wouldn’t complain about. To the rescue came the street vendor around the corner who, if memory serves me right, would always have a plethora of fresh fruit in her cart.

Juicy June: Brace Yourself for All the Fruited Brews

We had a fun month during May releasing tons of archived bottles for sale in celebration of our 6th anniversary. We thank you for coming to visit us, whether it was to just grab a few bottles to complete your craft beer collection or to raise a tulip of an old favorite from the archives.

As we roll into June, we have loads of great new and archive beers to look forward to on draft. In addition to the annual bottle release of some seasonal favorites, we also have fun archive bottle pours and even an archive bottle sale, too.

Here's what you can look forward to for our Fruited Beer Month of June. For exact dates of these happenings, follow The Bruery Tasting Room Facebook and Twitter. Please be aware these items are subject to change -- we were just so excited about all this good stuff to come, we wanted to let you know what's up.

Bruery Terreux™ to open in Anaheim, California

It's with great excitement we share news on a big step in our growth here at The Bruery. We will launch a new brand & tasting room in 2015, specializing in farmhouse-style and sour ales, both traditional and modern.

We are pleased to announce the formation of Bruery Terreux, a new brand that will focus solely on farmhouse-style ales fermented with wild yeasts as well as oak-aged sour ales. Our original brand will rededicate its focus specifically on experimentation with non-wild ales, modern twists on classic styles and aging beer in bourbon and other spirit barrels.

Bruery Terreux, which translates to “Earthy Bruery”, first and foremost takes inspiration from the earth, presenting flavors in as natural of a way as possible, as nature intended. Wort will be brewed on our brand new GEA CRAFT-STAR brewhouse and then transported to Bruery Terreux's own facility a few miles down the road. All fermentation, barrel aging and packaging will take place at this second facility. A brand new Bruery Terreux tasting room will also be opened at this location in late 2015 where customers will have the chance to enjoy Bruery Terreux’s offerings in a unique setting.

Our current brands that are brewed with wild yeasts or bacteria such as Saison Rue, Oude Tart, or Hottenroth Berliner Weisse, will be transitioned to Bruery Terreux. The recipes will remain the same, but will be overseen by wild beer specialists and will be bottled under the new branding. Exciting new beers will also be added to Bruery Terreux’s lineup.

More details will follow over the coming months. As this project is subject to approval from the City of Anaheim and the California Department of Alcoholic Beverages, details are subject to change.

Please follow Bruery Terreux on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram for late breaking developments.

Design Contest! A Coaster + A Postcard = A Coastcard

We certainly enjoy having you stop in for a beer or some tasters at The Bruery Tasting Room, and as we continue to slowly and carefully grow our small craft brewery, we want you to be a bigger and bigger part of who we are. After all, we have the opportunity to grow and become an even better brewery for you because of your support!

With this in mind, we think it's about time we give our coasters a little refresher at The Bruery Tasting Room, so we're on the look out for new coaster design ideas.
