Reserve Society: Am I Getting My Money’s Worth?

Reserve Society: Am I Getting My Money’s Worth?

“Reserve Society” is the trending word in beer communities across the Unites States as we’ve entered 2014. From California to Washington D.C. and everywhere in between, breweries are charging an entrance fee for guaranteed access to their rarest beers, events, and even some swag. This approach circumvents the need to host beer releases at the brewery, which sometimes can get out of hand, and cuts down on the amount of people that travel to the … Read entire article »

The Bruery Filmishmish

The Bruery Filmishmish

If you’ve been following this site (as we know you all have been! Thanks!) you’ve probably realized that we enjoy apricots…a lot. I gave Cantillon Fou’ Foune a 5 overall and Garrett laid himself down at the feet of Dogfish Head’s Aprihop (4.5 Overall). We aren’t ashamed, and I’m not going to stop. Today, it’s The Bruery’s Filmishmish; tomorrow, apricots will be growing in my stomach. As you will also recall, Bob and I recently received … Read entire article »

Cellaring Beer

Previously I posted about my beer label collection and my quest to try beers from all over the world. That quest put a cramp on my desire to start cellaring beer for later years.  However, last year I decided to make the effort because I want to experience first hand how individual beers change over time. Some  changes will be good, but I know that some will be bad. But where to start? What are the best … Read entire article »

Bruery Reserve Society

Bruery Reserve Society

The Bruery is a brewing company based in Placentia, California founded by Patrick Rue and named as a fusion between his family name and the word “brewery.” From The Bruery website: “We’ve been inspired by many different breweries and beers, some from Belgium, and some not.

Sweet potato pie, Thai food, the intense aroma of freshly picked lavender, among many others, are our primary influences. Most of our beers are 100% … Read entire article »

The Bruery, Elysian, and Stone La Citrueille Celeste De Citracado

The Bruery, Elysian, and Stone La Citrueille Celeste De Citracado

Saying either the breweries or the name of this beer is kind of a mouthful, let alone the two together. For this collaboration, Tyler King and Patrick Rue represented the Bruery, Dick Cantwell for Elysian, and Mitch Steele from Stone. As this was brewed on September 7th, 2011 and released outside the breweries on October 31, I’m not really on top of the “Drink this Fresh” commandment on the bottle. In my defense, I bought it … Read entire article »
