Congrats, Reuben’s Brews! It’s been a helluva run thus far! Someone should give you a medal. Uh, wait, you’ve already got a lot of those, so we’ll just give you pat on the back and say, “Cheers!”
This Saturday, August 7th the brewery celebrates its 9th anniversary. They’ll mark the occasion with a special beer release, live music, special guest taps, and more. The list of guest taps looks pretty darned special — Alvarado Street Brewing, Hair of the Dog, Great Notion, Varietal, Single Hill, and others.
You’re gonna want some of this! The anniversary beer is a special blend of two beers: imperial stout and barleywine. Each was individually barrel-aged in bourbon and rye barrels. Then the two were blended. The blended result was then aged in a Pineau des Charentes puncheon. Pineau des Charentes is a rather fancy French aperitif (a fermented wine beverage, think cognac).
Happy Anniversary, Reuben’s Brews. What a time it’s been! I still remember your opening day at the little brewery/taproom up the street. Who knew how far you’d go and how much you’d grow! Here’s to many more years and many more beers!
REUBEN’S BREWS 9th ANNIVERSARY & BOTTLE RELEASE.
THIS SATURDAY BEGINNING AT 11am AT THE TAPROOM
Join us at The Taproom this Saturday for our 9th Anniversary celebration! We’ll have both the front and back patios set up with live music, food trucks, extra pouring stations, and some amazing guest taps from some good friends! (See below for info.)
We also will be releasing bottles of our 9th Anniversary barrel-aged beer.
Our 9th Anniversary Blend begins with imperial stout and barleywine, both individually aged in bourbon and rye barrels, and then blended together and aged in a second round of bourbon barrels. This barrel blend is then aged a third time in a unique Pineau des Charentes puncheon, with the French aperitif barrel adding a new layer of complex sweetness, honey, and stone fruits.
This limited release will be available for purchase in-person or online for pickup exclusively at The Taproom beginning at 11am. The bottle limit is 2 per person.
Cheers, we’re looking forward to seeing you on Saturday!
