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.

Editor’s Note: This is the entry for The Bruery’s Bourbon Barrel Aged Anniversary beer.

2013 thanks to t0rin0! Aromas of caramel and bourbon. Pours a dark brownish red color with little head. Was a bit hot at first when it was cold but it got smoother as it warmed up. I can imagine that this would be even better with some age on it. A great beer to sip on as the 15% creeps up on you.

Thanks to ParkerDaniels for this one. Dark pour with a brown head. Aroma is dark fruit, leather , bourbon, brown sugar. Taste is dark fruit/brown sugar upfront, followed by bourbon and leather. So damn tasty. The alcohol is well hidden at the start. This is a beer you take small sips at slow intervals because you don’t want the beer to end. The aroma is so much a part of this fantastic experience, I took a deep inhale before each sip and into the glass well after the beer was gone. As it warms, the sweetness increases and you start to notice the alcohol. I shared the beer with my brother and we both noticed an alcohol presence as our face seemed to warm.
