The Bruery Wineification


Brewed by The Bruery
Placentia, California USA
Style: Fruit Beer | Ratings: 19 | Special Seasonal | Alcohol: 15.7%
A collaboration with Fess Parker and Saarloos & Sons

The "wineification" of beer has been a constant topic of discussion these days, so why not just take a step further and blend the two? We took our Black Tuesday Imperial Stout and fermented it along with late harvest Syrah grapes from the vineyards of Los Olivos, from our good friends at both Fess Parker and Saarloos & Sons. We then aged this wine/beer hybrid in French Oak barrels, waiting for the perfect time to bottle it up. The flavor profile is remarkable. Notes of black cherry, vanilla, cinnamon, oak, aged balsamic, port wine and a sherry-like oxidation from the barrels. This beer is like nothing that you have ever tried before.
