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.

Thanks for the heads up on this!  I just joined the Reserve Society on the "sours and wilds" side (Terreux).  I figure I will be able to pick up some of the barrel-aged beers as singles as the year goes on.  The Bruery is currently firing on all cylinders, and I had not heard that they were setting up this DC outpost.

I purchased the same exact membership.  I was really excited about being able to choose a sour/wild package.

We got a new firewall at work so I can't get a link, but they are now in a soft open mode.  Grand opening is to be announced, but a date in January 2018.

I'm not interested in joining one of the clubs, but have to note that they have a great selection at retail.  Stopped in to get some beers for holiday gatherings and they had dozens of options stocked.  It's great to have access to such a wide variety of their Terreux line in one place.  They are also going to be getting shipments from their Offshoot brewery from time to time; I don't think these are distributed anywhere else in the area.

I could be wrong, but I am pretty sure that Offshoot isn't distributed anywhere other than through their own retail stores or their website.  I am going to head there later this week to pick up my first allocation.  Can't wait.

I just had the So Happens its Tuesday with Coffee from Bruery at Fireworks Arlington.  They have something from Bruery on Tap and it gets a big crowd, being popular.  This is great.  I'm a dark beer fan.  This is strong at 14.6 ABV and extremely tasty.  It looks like it might be available at Total Wine.  I'm in.

I can't believe it.  I never drink during lunch.  Now I can't do anything...but boy that was good.

Perhaps The Bruery can post updated information here so our beer lovers can get updates - would someone please send this suggestion to them?
