The Bruery which hails from Orange County, CA, is about to open their east coast hub in DC at Union Market at some point this month. If you haven't heard about the Bruery or their beers, they are known for making "big" barrel aged beers, wilds and sours. Although they are currently available in local stores, most of their more rare offerings never make it to the retail channel and are sold through their website/clubs. Their Reserve Society is now open for new members and will allow you to pick up your allocations at the DC location. Definitely worth checking out. Membership gives you first crack at getting your hands on their most rare beers such as Black Tuesday or Chocolate Rain. I have had the joy of drinking Chocolate Rain, it is a beast of a beer, clocking in at 19.6% abv. Although the beer is such a beast in the ABV category, it is exceptionally smooth and balanced, there is a good amount of sweetness to balance out the abv, it drinks like an 8% beer, and has so much flavor going on. I am not generally big on the liquor barrel aged big beers, but this is something special. If high abv liquor barrel aged beers is not your thing, perhaps Flimishmish is. Flimishmish is a tart blonde which is aged on apricots in oak barrels. The result is nothing short of amazing, with a refreshing natural apricot flavor coming through. It is one of those beers that I dream about.
