The traditional 7th anniversary gift is copper, so we’ve named our 7th anniversary ale "Cuivre" which is "copper" in French. Cuivre is loosely brewed in the English-style Old Ale tradition using our house Belgian yeast strain and then blended using the solera method. A portion of each of our anniversary ales is saved in our barrels and blended in with the next year’s production, providing more complexity and depth of character that comes with age. Layered with complex flavors of dark fruit,vanilla, oak, and burnt sugar, Cuivre is a robust ale, surely the perfect beer to mark this major milestone.

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

Bottled at oh6gdx’s birthday bash at chriso’s. Cloudy dark brown, smal head. Aroma of chocolate sauce and whisky. Full bodied. Caramel drenched in maple syrup. Intense and oaky, vinous and peaty with sticky sweetness. Very heavy with loads of treacle. Too sweet and sticky to be really enjoyable.

ChrisOs Early December Tasting. Opaque dark brown beer, tidy tan head. Smooth semi dry palate. Rich malt with lots of sweet bourbon. Toasted coconut and a trace of vanilla. Sweetish bourbon finish. Semi dry. Decent but even after 18 months probably a bit young.

7th February 2014
Fruet bottle share at Bruce’s birthday bash. Bruce produces a Bruery?! Seems a lot more mellow this version - Sweetish malt, sweet caramel, little vanilla and light tangy dried fruits. Warming afterglow but no real heat in the mouth,
