The Bruery

All back in stock -- not all of them are online yet though.

All are in stock now at Forsyth

The Bruery Melange No 14...$19.99 / 750ml
Our Mélange series is a chance to roll out the barrels, roll up our sleeves and explore flavors that cannot be achieved outside of the art of the blend or by any one beer. French for “blend”, this mélange fuses the mature character of some of our most vintage barrels of barleywine and old ale with the dark depth of our imperial stouts, including both Tuesday-themed releases and Share This. This mélange is one for all, with rich, complex notes and the signature kiss of oak.

The Bruery Terreux Tart of Darkness....$16.99 / 750ml
Tart of Darkness is a sour stout that we aged in used oak barrels that previously housed beers such as Sucré™ or Black Tuesday®. The result is a perfectly tart yet awesomely dark and roasty sour stout. This very special edition has an addition of tart cherries and sweet vanilla beans. The additional cherries help bring the fruit character of the Belgian-style yeast to the forefront while the vanilla matches flawlessly with the burnt roastiness of the malt.

The Bruery 9 Ladies Dancing....$9.49 / 750ml
Here’s a pick me up for the latest verse in our Twelve Days of Christmas series. Inspired by flavors and ingredients found in tiramisu, including ladyfingers, 9 Ladies Dancing mimics the Italian dessert by whipping together flavor combinations and layers of its own. This includes notes of vanilla, chocolate and coffee – clearly the leading ladies in this rich, dessert-like beer.

The Bruery Jardinier...$6.99 / 750ml
Jardinier, which is French for “gardener,” was inspired by the fresh, sessionable beers so often found on the Belgian dinner table. Bright and flavorful with an assertive hop character, Jardinier is a perfect beer for any occasion, casual or ornate.
Pronounced: jhar-dee-nyier

The Bruery Mischief...$7.99 / 750ml
Mischief is a hoppy Belgian-style golden ale. This wickedly good golden ale is fiendishly dry-hopped with American hops to add a layer of complexity and mystery to its fruity, dry Belgian-style character. Citrus and resin diabolically combine with ripe melon, pear and slight peppery spice in a precariously effervescent mixture. Enjoy it, but you’ll want to keep an eye out. Gold Medal – 2016 Great American Beer Festival, American-Belgo-Style Ale.

The Bruery Trade Winds....$7.99 / 750ml
Our Summer seasonal, Trade Winds Tripel is a Belgian-style Golden Ale with a Southeast Asian twist. Instead of using candi sugar (typical for such a beer), we use rice in the mash to lighten the body and increase the gravity, and spice with Thai Basil. The result is an aromatic, digestible and complex beer made for a lazy summer evening.

The Bruery White Oak....$12.99 / 750ml
White Oak is a hardy, blended wheatwine-style ale, grafting elements reminiscent of caramel, vanilla, coconut and warm oak with the creamy complexity of wheat. Crisp effervescence spirals around sweet bourbon barrel-aged layers, expanding into a refreshingly robust ale.

The Bruery Poterie 2016 Anniversary....$23.99 / 750ml
Poterie is French for “pottery”, the traditional eight-year anniversary gift. Our eighth anniversary ale, Poterie, follows in the footsteps of our anniversary releases before it, which are loosely based on an English-style old ale, fermented with our house yeast strain and then blended using the solera method. This means that a portion of each anniversary ale is saved in oak barrels and blended in with the next year’s production, providing more complexity and depth of character as the years go by. The result is layered in robust and complex flavors of toffee, caramel, dark fruit, vanilla and oak. Poterie will age gracefully for decades when cellared properly.

The Bruery Terreux Sour in Rye....$16.99 / 750ml
We’ve all come to know and love our barrel-aged sour rye ale, Sour in the Rye. Now it’s time to enjoy a bright variation of it that has kumquats added to the mix. Not only is “kumquat” one of the most fun fruit names to roll off the tongue, it also treats the entire palate to a unique display of fruity characteristics. The tart, sweet, citrus and tropical notes of both the kumquats and tangerine zest strike a balance with the honey, vanilla and woody character imparted from barrel-aging. At the same time, the unique bitterness of the citrus fruit locks step with the clove and pepper notes imparted from the rye. It’s a combination that’s hard to define (like a kumquat), but after you’ve had your first taste, you’ll be rewarded with tangy clarity.

The Bruery Terreux Rueuze.....$16.99 / 750ml
Rueuze is our take on the traditional Belgian-style blend of lambics of different ages. We carefully select a number of oak barrels from our warehouse that have been aging our sour blonde ale for anywhere from several months to several years and blend the beers together to what we find to be the ideal flavor. This is one complex beer. Notes of hay, barnyard funk, apricots and olives play wonderfully with the balanced acidity.

The Bruery Terreux Beret...$12.99 / 750ml
Beret is as artistic as those who wear its namesake cap. Our brewers developed a silky, full-bodied wheat ale which we began fermenting with a Belgian-style witbier yeast strain. To finish the fermentation, we added our collection of barnyard bacteria, intended to slowly sour the ale, bringing out a slight funk and refreshing piquancy. Finally, a small dose of pureed raspberries were added for just a hint of fruity tannins, putting the berry in Beret.

The Bruery Terreax Oude Tart....$16.99 / 750ml
Oude Tart is a Flemish-Style Red Ale aged in red wine barrels. It’s pleasantly sour with hints of leather, dark fruit and toasty oak. While this is one of the more classic beer styles that we make, it’s not a style that you can find too often in the United States. Originating in style from the Flanders region of Belgium, near the French boarder, this dark, sour ale has roots deep in brewing history and predates most of the ales that have become popular in contemporary culture. We’re doing our best to keep the tradition alive by brewing and aging this beer here on the west coast.

The Bruery Terreux Hottenroth Berliner Weisse.....$6.99 / 750ml
Hottenroth Berliner Weisse is brewed in memory of Fred & Sarah Hottenroth, Patrick’s grandparents. This tart, German-style Berliner Weisse is as authentic as it gets. We use lactobacillus and a hint of brettanomyces to sour this very unusual, low gravity wheat beer. To cut the tartness for those with sweeter tastes, raspberry or woodruff syrup is a traditional way to sweeten the beer. Almost an extinct style, we hope to help revive the Berliner Weisse in memory of two great people.

The Bruery Terreux Saison Rue...$9.99 / 750ml
Saison Rue is an unfiltered, bottle conditioned, Belgian/French-style farmhouse ale. This is a beer of subtlety and complexity, with malted rye, spicy, fruity yeast notes, biscuit-like malt backbone and a slight citrus hop character. With age, this beer will dry out and will become more complex with rustic notes of leather and earth from the contribution of a wild yeast strain. Being a saison, Saison Rue is ambiguous unto itself as it is a different beer when fresh and when aged.

The Bruery Autumn Maple....$9.49 / 750ml
Brewed with 15 lbs. of yams per barrel (in other words, a lot of yams!), this autumn seasonal is a different take on the “pumpkin” beer style. Cinnamon, nutmeg, allspice, vanilla, molasses, maple syrup, and fermentation with our traditional Belgian yeast strain, make this bold and spicy beer perfect for a cold autumn evening.
We have also created bourbon barrel aged, 100% brettanomyces and soured versions of Autumn Maple.
