It seems that everywhere you look it’s anniversary time in Orange County and one of our fastest growing breweries, The Bruery, has officially turned two. An entire weekend was set aside this year to celebrate their newest milestone and the release of this year’s Anniversary Ale, Coton.
Second Anniversary Old Ale
100% Bourbon Barrel Aged Coton [17%abv]
Second Anniversary Old Ale Aged in Bourbon Barrels
Melange #3 [15.5%abv]
A blending of multiple barrel-aged beers this ale has become the first of the ‘Melange’ beers to make it to the bottle.
Melange #5- DBJW [15%abv]
Also known as Dirty Beaver Juice Weekend this unique blend was ‘brewed with love’ for Beachwood BBQ in Seal Beach, CA and that ‘love’ can be felt in every sip. If you get the opportunity to sample this beauty you will not be disappointed!
While enjoying the Strong Ale Bar selections, it was noticed that the table marked Deserts held more than just items to satisfy a sweet tooth. In addition to The Bruery’s very delicious Liege Waffles & TCHO chocolate dipped bacon (yes, I said chocolate dipped bacon), the table held a selection of artisan cheeses that included Winchester Super Aged Gouda, Bleu des Causses and Cana de Cabra- three selections that went very well with the complex flavors of the high alcohol selections we where enjoying.
In addition to the ‘deserts’ being offered inside by Bruery staff, catering was being performed outside by Beachwood BBQ to a hungry crowd. Gabe & his team created a special Anniversary sauce that combined Coton with bacon for a delicious experience that, went real well slathered on Beachwood’s pulled chicken. Rounding out the menu were fried pickles, cobbed corn, fried green tomatoes, grits, and a spicy sausage that had a nose-clearing kick to it that was a bit unexpected, but real nice.
All-in-all the event was peaceful and it’s guaranteed than everyone came away from the day quite content. If you have never had the opportunity to visit Patrick and his crew over at the tasting room, it is well worth the adventure.
