The Bruery & Bruery Terreux Announce Six New Releases

06 February 2017

imageFrom The Bruery:

To kickoff the month of February, on Monday, The Bruery® and Bruery Terreux® rolled out six new beers to members of its Hoarders Society, Reserve Society and Preservation Society. All six releases are 100% aged in oak. This includes a brand new concept that straddles the boundaries between a tart, oak-aged wheat ale and a wildly-fermented cider; the release of Mocha Wednesday (2017); and, pre-public access to the latest Frucht installment as well as the 2017 editions of White Chocolate, Mélange #3 and Tart of Darkness.



Additional information about all six newly released beers is available below. See if these beers are coming to a Society – or market – near and dear to you.



Bruery Terreux Pommereux



We’ve blurred the boundaries between wine and beer before. But this time, the apple falls from an entirely different tree. Literally. Pommereux is a sour ale like no other. At its core, it’s an American wild ale, yet it shares the tart, crisp, effervescent and funky qualities you’d expect in a wildly-fermented cider. To achieve this profile, we partnered with our friends at Tin City Cider to freshly press juice from a field blend of apples, which included golden delicious, fuji, granny smith, gala, gravenstein, macintosh, mutsu, red delicious and pink lady. This freshly pressed juice was combined with wort of a sour wheat ale and added to oak barrels, where it co-fermented with wild yeast and bacteria from our house cultures as well as microflora that may have been present on the fruit. The result straddles the boundaries between a tart, oak-aged wheat ale and a wildly-fermented cider, balancing qualities of both seamlessly. It’s a bushel of fun, stemming right down to our spirit of continued experimentation and exploration.



7.1% ABV, Hoarders Society Release



The Bruery Mocha Wednesday™ (2017)



Mocha Wednesday is the perfect follow-up to Black Tuesday®, adding layers of artisan dark chocolate and bold coffee flavors, especially when consumed fresh, thanks to cacao nibs from San Francisco-based TCHO and freshly roasted coffee from OC’s own Portola Coffee Lab.



19.9% ABV, Hoarders Society and Reserve Society Release



*This beer is included in the First Quarter Preservation Society Package (ready for pickup/delivery end-March). Space is available for new members looking to join and receive this beer (and two others) with a Preservation Society membership.



Bruery Terreux Frucht: Boysenberry™



Welcome to Frucht, our land of fruited Berliner Weisse-style beers. Known for a tart flavor profile and traditionally low ABV, our German-style wheat beer gains even more funky notes and natural earthy-woodiness from fermentation in one of our twin oak foeder vessels – the largest known to be fabricated in this country. Each installment in the series features a new fruit, or Frucht, if we’re Sprechen sie Deutsch. This installment has boysenberries added, which impart a puckering jamminess and gem-like hue.



4.5% ABV



Society release: Monday, February 6



Public release:  Tuesday, February 14 (Tasting Rooms & TheBrueryStore.com)



National release: February in our distributed regions in AZ, CA, CO, CT, DC, FL, GA, HI, IL, IN, KY, LA, MD, MA, MI, MN, MO, NJ, NV, NY, NC, OH, OR, PA, RI, TX, VT, VA, WA, WI



The Bruery White Chocolate® (2017)



This bourbon barrel-aged wheatwine-style ale made a fanciful trip to the chocolatier and returned with luscious flavors of white chocolate – hence the name. White Chocolate is a rewarding summons to the senses – beginning with its golden appearance and finishing with warming, white chocolate-like flavors. This is accomplished by adding cacao nibs from TCHO and fresh vanilla beans to our bourbon barrel-aged wheatwine-style ale, complementing the rich notes of coconut, honey, caramel and vanilla from extensive barrel-aging.



13.8% ABV



Society release: Monday, February 6





Public release:  Tuesday, February 14 (Tasting Rooms & TheBrueryStore.com)

National release: February in our distributed regions in AZ, CA, CO, CT, DC, FL, GA, HI, IL, IN, KY, LA, MD, MA, MI, MN, MO, NJ, NV, NY, NC, OH, OR, PA, RI, TX, VT, VA, WA, WI



Bruery Terreux Tart of Darkness® (2017)



Tart of Darkness is a sour stout aged in oak. Brewed to resemble a stout at its foundation, the journey into tartness begins with fermentation in large oak puncheons at Bruery Terreux, where it’s treated to a special blend of souring bacteria and wild yeast cultures. Following a slow but wildly active fermentation, the beer is transferred for extended aging into a dedicated collection of used oak barrels for Tart of Darkness. This includes emptied bourbon barrels from The Bruery that previously held beers such as Black Tuesday®. After nature takes its course, the result emerges as a perfectly tart yet awesomely dark and roasty sour stout. It’s not a style you see very often; and, in our opinion, it’s not a style seen often enough. Our sour stout features notes of tart, dark fruit, vanilla and chocolate with a subtle toasty character and undercurrents of oak.



6.6% ABV



Society release: Monday, February 6



Public release:  Tuesday, February 14 (Tasting Rooms & TheBrueryStore.com)



National release: February in our distributed regions in AZ, CA, CO, CT, DC, FL, GA, HI, IL, IN, KY, LA, MD, MA, MI, MN, MO, NJ, NV, NY, NC, OH, OR, PA, RI, TX, VT, VA, WA, WI



The Bruery Mélange #3™ (2017)



Our Mélange series is at the core of our experimentation with flavors that cannot be achieved outside of the art of the blend or by any one beer. This is one of our original mélanges… at its very finest. Mélange #3 is a blend of three ales with stories stretching back to the earliest days in our bourbon barrel-aged program: Black Tuesday, our Anniversary Series old ale and our wheatwine-style ale. The combination reaches through the bourbon veneer with complex notes of dark chocolate, coconut, dark fruits, oaky undertones, rich caramel character and warm vanilla.



16.3% ABV



Society release: Monday, February 6



Public release:  Friday, February 24 (Tasting Rooms & TheBrueryStore.com)



National release: March in our distributed regions in AZ, CA, CO, CT, DC, FL, GA, HI, IL, IN, KY, LA, MD, MA, MI, MN, MO, NJ, NV, NY, NC, OH, OR, PA, RI, TX, VT, VA, WA, WI



ABOUT THE BRUERY & BRUERY TERREUX
The Bruery was founded in 2008 by Patrick Rue, now a Master Cicerone®, after he found homebrewing to be of greater interest than law school. Innovation has driven The Bruery to create one-of-a-kind barrel-aged, sour, and experimental beers since its inception. In 2015, The Bruery moved its sour beer production to the Bruery Terreux co-brand in Anaheim, while The Bruery continues to craft non-sour and spirit-barrel aged beers at its original site in Placentia.



We offer three different tiers of Society memberships, each with their own level of access to limited release beers, discounts on purchases, Tasting Room perks, and access to Society-exclusive events and merchandise. Additional information is available at thebruerystore.com/membership.
