5 Golden RingsThe Bruery
Placentia, CA
Winter Ale
11.5% ABV
5 Golden Rings is the 5th verse in our '12 Days of Christmas' winter seasonal ale series. The only golden ale in the bunch, we spiced up the natural pause in the classic song with cinnamon, allspice and ginger along with the delicious sweet and tangy flavor pineapple. The resulting ale is a true holiday treat that can be enjoyed fresh or cellared until 2019, when 12 Drummers Drumming with be released.
6 Geese a LayingThe Bruery
Placentia, CA
Belgian Strong
11.5% ABV
6 Geese-A-Laying is the 6th beer in our "12 Days of Christmas" series and is a return to the more classic dark and toasty winter ale, following the appropriately blonde 5 Golden Rings. Brewed with cape gooseberries, this malty ale displays notes of plums, dark cherry and bright, citrus-like flavors from the namesake berries. Delicious right now, but suitable for aging up to 6 years, upon the release of 12 Drummers Drumming.

7 Swans-A-SwimmingThe Bruery
Placentia, CA
Belgian Quad
11% ABV
7 Swans-A-Swimming is the 7th beer in our "12 Days of Christmas" series. For this verse of the story, we chose the path we don’t often take – we brewed to style. No bells, no whistles, just our best take on the Belgian Quadrupel style. Brewed with nothing but water, malt, yeast, hops and a bit of Belgian dark candi sugar, this beer may not be as out-of-the-box as some of our past winter brews, but it’s just as tasty. Rich and complex, this robust dark ale juggles notes of raisin bread, dried apricots, burnt caramel and roasted pecans. The sweet flavors provide a full body and the bright yeast wafts the sweet holiday notes out of the glass, into your life. 7 Swans-A-Swimming is a perfect holiday sipper. Delicious right now, but suitable for aging up to 5 years, upon the release of 12 Drummers Drumming.
8 Maids-A-MilkingThe Bruery
Placentia, CA
Imperial Stout
11.3% ABV
8 Maids-a-Milking is the 8th beer in our “12 Days of Christmas” series, and we’d be udderly crazy to release anything but a milk stout. So we made an imperial milk stout to stand up to whatever Old Man Winter throws our way from now through 2019 with the final release of our series. 8 Maids-a-Milking is brewed with lactose, which is commonly referred to as milk sugar. It’s the only type of sugar that is unfermentable by yeast, which adds more perceptible creaminess and sweetness to the finished beer. This mouthfeel and sweetness is complemented by robust layers of milk chocolate, subtle spice accents from our house Belgian yeast and roasty, cafe elements indicative of our take on the style. Celebrate the seasons with the best of both worlds: enjoy some now, and lay a few down for up to 4 years to be enjoyed upon the release of 12 Drummers Drumming.

Atomic KangarueThe Bruery
Placentia, CA
Wild
9.5% ABV
We’ve been friends with the folks at Smog City for many years and getting to brew a beer with them was a dream come true. Truly, only in the world of dreams could this remarkable beer have been manifested. A Belgian-style golden ale, brewed with Semillon and Viognier grapes plus three types of hops, fermented with Brettanomyces Trois as well as our house yeast strain, then blended with a sour blonde ale and finally dry-hopped with Amarillo hops. This beer couldn’t be more complex and we couldn’t be more proud of it.
Autumn MapleThe Bruery
Placentia, CA
Spiced
10% ABV25 IBU
Brewed with 17 lbs. of yams per barrel (in other words, a lot of yams!) this autumn seasonal is a different take on the "pumpkin" beer style. Brewed with cinnamon, nutmeg, allspice, vanilla, molasses, and maple syrup, and fermented with our traditional Belgian yeast strain, this bold and spicy beer is perfect on a cold autumn evening.

Black TuesdayThe Bruery

Imperial Stout
19% ABV
Aged in bourbon barrels for over a year, this extremely rich stout has picked up flavors of vanilla, burnt caramel, toasted oak, prunes, and sherry-like oxidation.
BoisThe Bruery
Placentia, CA
Old Ale
15.5% ABV
May is our anniversary month and we are excited to release Bois, our fifth anniversary ale this week! This beer is brewed in the English-style Old Ale tradition using our house Belgian yeast strain and then blended using the solera method, where 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.
CacaonutThe Bruery
Placentia, CA
Strong Ale
15.6% ABV
Cacaonut is a special treat. A rare and secret blend of several different barrel aged beers that we’ve pulled from our cellar along with toasted coconut and cacao nibs from San Francisco’s TCHO. The inspiration for this beer were the unique flavors of a chocolate dipped coconut macaroon. After polishing off a few of those dense, sweet and delicious, coconut treats, Patrick started thinking through the flavor profiles of some of our favorite barrel aged beers, deciphering a way to replicate the luscious qualities of that favorite treat. Spice, rich toffee, cocoa and tropical notes blend deliciously and delicately in this newest barrel aged addition to our collection.
CuivreThe Bruery
Placentia, CA
Old Ale
16.2% ABV
The traditional seventh anniversary gift is copper, so we’ve named our 7th anniversary ale “”Cuivre”” which is “copper”” in French. Cuivre is our seventh anniversary ale, 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.
EtainThe Bruery

FilmishmishThe Bruery
Placentia, CA
Sour Ale
5.8% ABV
Filmishmish, an Arabic term for “when the apricots bloom”, is a barrel aged sour blonde ale to which apricots have been added. The beer's already fruity esters are enhanced by the hint of fresh apricot jam and wood shavings. Filmishmish is a well balanced beer, keeping the apricot and oak character present, but putting the flavor of the well formed sour ale at the forefront.
Fourthmeal (Maine Beer Co. Collab)The Bruery
Placentia, CA
Belgian
6.9% ABV
The Bruery and Maine Beer Company got together and cooked up something special for you: fourthmeal. It isn’t brunch; it isn’t "linner." It’s a hoppy Belgian-style ale that brings aspects of both breweries to the table: fruity, Belgian yeast esters, a crisp, bready backbone, citrus and piney hop characteristics, and a dry, hop-forward finish. There’s no one shouting "come n’ git it" when it’s time to dine - just mouth-watering, dry-hopped aromatics, signaling that it’s time for fourthmeal.

Berliner Weisse
Frucht: Lemon & CherryThe Bruery
Placentia, CA
Berliner Weisse
5% ABV
Welcome to Frucht, our land of fruited Berliner Weisse-style beers. Known for a tart flavor profile and traditionally low ABV, our German-style wheat beer gains even more funky notes and natural earthy-woodiness from fermentation in one of our twin oak foeder vessels - the largest known to be fabricated in this country. This installment in our Frucht series is the first to feature two fruits (früchte?), with the refreshing combination of lemon zest and tart cherries.
Girl Grey AleThe Bruery

Belgian Pale
8.5% ABV
Brewed w/ lactose, almond & Earl Grey tea. A collaboration beer brewed w/ Top Chef Brooke Williamson.
Goses are RedThe Bruery
Placentia, CA
Gose
5.3% ABV
This is a rosé - and a gose - by any other name. Goses are Red is a stylish match of a funky, crisp and tart gose with the soft sweetness of a rosé wine. The refreshing wheat-based beer begins with some of the qualities you’d expect from a gose, including coriander spicing and a light saltiness to complement the tartness imparted by our house cultures. But the story doesn’t end there - it builds in complexity, thanks to time spent in an oak foeder and the addition of grapes, which impart a refreshing rosé character and color. It’s a charming interpretation that says all the right things, but it’s not as sweet as you.

Guava LibreThe Bruery
Placentia, CA
Cream Ale
7.5% ABV
This sensory getaway transports you to a corner bodega with our friends at Funky Buddha in South Florida to recreate the flavors you’d find in a Cuban guava pastry. Championing the big, bold flavors that both of our breweries are known for, we brewed an imperial cream ale, adding lactose and vanilla to impart sweet, custard-like ribbons, and guava for filling its conceptual authenticity. It’s a collaboration that’s equal parts inspiration and admiration.
Hoppy ObligationsThe Bruery
Placentia, CA
Pilsner
5.3% ABV
This hoppy pilsner is classically crafted with a requisite west coast flare from dry-hopping with Saphir, Spalt Select and Saaz hops. Is a 5.3% ABV dry-hopped pils perfectly suited for warmer weather? We definitely think so!
HottenrothThe Bruery
Placentia, CA
Wheat Ale
3.1% ABV2 IBU
Hottenroth Berliner Weisse is brewed in memory of Fred and Sarah Hottenroth, Patrick's grandparents. This tart German-style Berliner Weisse is as authentic as it gets. We used lactobacillus and a hint of brettanomyces to sour this very unusual, low gravity wheat beer. To cut the tartness for those with sweeter tastes, raspberry or woodruff syrup is a traditional way to sweeten the beer. Almost an extinct style, we hope to help revive the Berliner Weisse in memory of two great people.
Humulus LagerThe Bruery
Placentia, CA
Lager
7.4% ABV70 IBU
We promised we wouldn't brew an IPA, and this is the closest we've come to breaking that promise. Humulus Lager is an extremely aromatic hoppy beer, with citrus, pine, and intense herbal characteristics. We brew this beer with more than 3 lbs. of hops per BBL, and it shows. We also use rice, a typically despised ingredient in beer, to lighten the body to make it more true to the American lager style.
Humulus TerreuxThe Bruery
Placentia, CA
JardinierThe Bruery
Placentia, CA
Belgian Pale
4.9% ABV
Jardiner, which is French for "gardner", was inspired by the fresh, thirst quenching beers on the Belgian dinner table. A perfect beer for any occasion, casual or ornate. A bright and flavorful table beer with an assertive hop character.
Loakal RedThe Bruery
Placentia, CA
Red Ale
6.9% ABV35 IBU
Loakal Red is an oak-aged American Red Ale. Our tribute to the growing Orange County beer scene. A hoppy red ale at heart, we, like many other SoCal brewers, chose the citrus & floral notes of the Centennial hop to balance the light caramel sweetness of the malt. But, of course, we couldn't leave well enough alone. So a portion of an older batch, left to mature in new American oak barrels, is blended with the fresh dry-hopped batch. The resulting blend has notes of toffee, orange peel, crushed herbs, vanilla & freshly sawn oak, for a beer that is intricate yet unassuming.
MASHThe Bruery
Placentia, CA
Barleywine
11.3% ABV
An English Barleywine aged in Bourbon barrels, Mash is an intense yet balanced beer with notes of burnt caramel, toasted bread, ripe pear, dried figs, vanilla, toasted coconut and finishes with oak tannin. This has become an instant favorite around the brewery due to its balance, subtle complexities and overwhelming deliciousness.

Old Ale
8.5% ABV15 IBU
Marrón Acidifié: Imperial Oud Bruin. For our first collaboration beer we are lucky to partner with Cigar City Brewing out of Tampa, Florida. Geographically a country apart but following similar paths, we felt an immediate connection with Joey, Wayne and the crew. We're both young breweries, founded and staffed by homebrewers, who use interesting ingredients and techniques to make unique, full-flavored beers. A recipe was created over pints at Falling Rock Tap House during GABF 2009 and Wayne came out to help brew it shortly after. Over a year in barrels has left this dark sour layered with notes of cranberries, tropical fruits, leather and aged balsamic vinegar, balanced by wood tannins and roasted malt. Raise a glass and toast to the success of fledging breweries across this great nation!
Melange #14The Bruery
Placentia, CA
Barrel Aged
13.4% ABV25 IBU
Our Mélange series is a chance to roll out the barrels, roll up our sleeves and explore flavors that cannot be achieved outside of the art of the blend or by any one beer. French for "blend", this mélange fuses the mature character of some of our most vintage barrels of barleywine and old ale with the dark depth of our imperial stouts, including both Tuesday-themed releases and Share This. This mélange is one for all, with rich, complex notes and the signature kiss of oak.
Melange No.1The Bruery
Placentia, CA
Sour Ale
9.5% ABV25 IBU
A delicate blend of our award winning Oude Tart and our infamous Black Tuesday, this is one of the most intriguing beers we've created to date. The tangy dark fruit flavors twist themselves with the chocolaty sweetness in a way that fools the palate into thinking you are truly drinking two great, yet widely different beers at the same time.
Melange No.3The Bruery
Placentia, CA
Barrel Aged
15.5% ABV
Melange #3 is a blend of three bourbon barrel aged strong ales. White Oak Sap, a wheat wine, our Anniversary Series old ale and our imperial stout, Black Tuesday, join forces in this luxurious strong ale that links some of the best characteristics of each of the contributing beers. Chocolate, dark fruits, oaky vanilla and rich toffee-like character reach through the bourbon veneer for an intensely satisfying quaff.
MischiefThe Bruery
Placentia, CA
Belgian Strong
8.5% ABV35 IBU
Mischief is a Hoppy Belgian-Style Golden Strong Ale. This wickedly good golden ale is fiendishly dry-hopped with American hops to add a layer of complexity and mystery to its fruity, dry Belgian-style character. Citrus and resin diabolically combine with ripe melon, pear and slight peppery spice in a precariously effervescent mixture. Enjoy it, but you'll want to keep an eye out.
Or XataThe Bruery
Placentia, CA
Spiced
7.2% ABV11 IBU
An homage to the Mexican beverage popular in Southern California, this blonde ale is brewed with rice, cinnamon, and fresh vanilla beans along with lactose for a litle extra creamy character.

OtioseThe Bruery
Placentia, CA
Sour Ale
8.2% ABV
Otiose is an English word (pronounced ‘oh-shus’) which means “without practical purpose.” It was a beer developed by our brewers during a rare space in the brewing schedule simply to satisfy their own cravings for a sour brown ale fermented with guava. Rich with tropical notes and balanced by a mellow roast, this beer brings your mind directly to a decadent Hawaiian luau, complete with the roasted pig.
Oude TartThe Bruery
Placentia, CA
Sour Ale
7.5% ABV15 IBU
Oude Tart is a Flemish-Style Red Ale aged in red wine barrels for 18 months. Pleasantly sour with hints of leather, dark fruit and toasty oak.
Oui OuiThe Bruery
Placentia, CA
Fruit
8.4% ABV
The second beer in our Vitis Series line of beer that have been fermented with grapes. For Oui Oui we used a first running press of Chardonnay grapes from the central coast and added them to our sour blonde ale. The beer was then aged in oak barrels that had originally been used to store wine, imparting even more of that chardonnay-like quality. The final beer has a pleasant funk which compliments the stone fruit and white wine-like character.
PinotlambicusThe Bruery
Placentia, CA
Fruit
8.4% ABV12 IBU
A dry and vinous beer with hints of smokiness and a touch of oak. First running press of Pinot Noir grapes from Santa Barbara County were added to a year old blonde sour ale (called by many names around here, one you may be familiar with is Cuvee Jeune) and fermented together in stainless. The grape beer was then transferred to wine barrels and aged for 10 months. The beer is pleasantly tart, complex and refreshing; it can easily substitute a sparkling wine for any celebration.
PoterieThe Bruery
Placentia, CA
Old Ale
14.8% ABV
Poterie is French for “pottery”, the traditional eight-year anniversary gift. Our eighth anniversary ale, Poterie, follows in the footsteps of our anniversary releases before it, which are loosely based on an English-style old ale and fermented with our house yeast strain. This edition was 100% aged in oak barrels that previously held Scotch, imparting a subtle smoky complexity to complement the robust flavors of toffee, caramel, dark fruit, vanilla and oak.

RueuzeThe Bruery

Lambic
5.9% ABV
Rueuze is our take on the traditional Belgian-style blend of lambics of different ages. We carefully select a number of oak barrels from our warehouse that have been aging our sour blonde ale for various lengths of time and blend them to what we think is the ideal flavor. this is one complex beer. Notes of hay, barnyard funk, apricots, and even olives play wonderfully with the balanced acidity.
RugbrodThe Bruery
Placentia, CA
Rye
8% ABV30 IBU
Meaning "rye bread" in Danish, we took our inspiration for this beer from the Danes' staple dark, whole-grain rye bread. Brewed with three types of rye malt, this robust brown ale showcases the earthy, spicy character of the grain, complemented by bready, nutty barley malts and a hint of roast. Loosely based on the Scandinavian Christmas beer or "Julebryg" tradition, this beer is perfect for the colder weather of winter, although it will be available year-round (because who doesn't love a dark beer now and again, regardless of weather?).
Saison De LenteThe Bruery
Placentia, CA
Saison
6.5% ABV35 IBU
Our Spring Saison is light blonde in color with a fresh hoppiness and a wild and rustic Brettanomyces character. Lighter in color and alcohol than our Saison Rue, yet equally complex in its own way. Perfect for warmer weather and Spring celebrations.
Saison RueThe Bruery
Placentia, CA
Saison
8.5% ABV30 IBU
Saison Rue is an unfiltered, bottle conditioned, Belgian/French-style farmhouse ale. This is a beer of subtlety and complexity, with malted rye, spicy, fruity yeast notes, biscuit-like malt backbone, and a slight citrus hop character. With age, this beer will dry out and will become complex with rustic notes of leather and earth from the contribution of a wild yeast strain. Being a Saison, Saison Rue is ambiguous unto itself as it is a different beer when fresh and when aged. We hope you enjoy it in all of its incarnations.
Sans PagaieThe Bruery
Placentia, CA
Sour Ale
5.8% ABV
Sans Pagaie translates to “without a paddle” and is our take on the Belgian-style kriek, a sour blonde ale aged in barrels with cherries. The base beer has a subtle funk that melds gently with the fruit giving this beer flavors reminiscent of coconut, vanilla yogurt and of course, fresh cherries. A complex beer, perfect for a warm California day in the park with a slice of home made chocolate cake.

Smoked
10% ABV
Brewed with beachwood and cherrywood smoked malt, and aged in rye whiskey barrels, Smoking Wood is a delicious demonstration of what wood has to offer when it comes to beer. This imperial smoked porter is brewed with a hefty amount of rye malt, contributing to a full body and light spiciness. Toasty oak, caramel and vanilla flavors balance the smokiness, contributing to an intense yet refined flavor profile.
So Happens It's TuesdayThe Bruery
Placentia, CA
Imperial Stout
14% ABV
Our infamous Black Tuesday® stout is named in honor of the great stock market crash of 1929. So Happens It’s Tuesday is similarly dark and delicious, but in a more affable format, reminding us that there is always a bit of good to be found within the bad. Things happen, life goes on. This beer can be enjoyed in all of those moments and seasons.
Sour in the RyeThe Bruery
Placentia, CA
Rye
8.7% ABV
We brewed this ale with around 40% rye as a base malt and let our sour yeast and bacteria eat away at it in oak barrels for over a year creating a sour ale with a complex character of rye spice, oak and a subtle funk.
Sucre (6th Anniversary Ale)The Bruery

The Bruery Sucre Old Ale, This beer marks the 6th Anniversary of The Bruery and it will be aged in Bourbon barrels. Look for Sucre to be packaged in 750ml bottles and come in at 16.9% ABV.
Tart of DarknessThe Bruery
Placentia, CA
Stout
8% ABV
We brewed a stout - no, not Black Tuesday, this one is only 5.6% abv if you can believe it! But we then decided to put it into the barrels that previously housed Black Tuesday and added our special blend of souring bacterias and wild yeasts. The result is a perfectly tart yet awesomely dark and roasty sour stout. Not a style you will see very often, and in our opinion, not a style seen often enough.

We’re totally Frucht around here. In fact, we may just be filled to the brim, with excitement, that is. Our threshold is 250 BBLs, to be more precise. That’s the total capacity of each oak foeder at Bruery Terreux. One is dedicated exclusively to Frucht, our series of fruited Berliner Weisse-style beers. Known for a tart flavor profile and traditionally low ABV, our German-style wheat beer gains even more funky notes and natural earthy-woodiness from its fermentation in the large oak foeder vessel. Each installment in the series features a new fruit, or Frucht, if we’re Sprechen sie Deutsch. This installment has boysenberries added. Prost!
Terreux - Sour in the RyeThe Bruery
Placentia, CA
Sour Ale
7.8% ABV
This American Wild Rye Ale was brewed with a substantial portion of rye malt, and the spicy character of the grain asserts itself with clove and pepper in the aroma and flavor. Add in sour cherry notes from our special blend of micro-organisms and vanilla from the red wine barrels and you’ve got a mouthful!
Terreux BeretThe Bruery
Placentia, CA
Sour Ale
9% ABV
Beret is as artistic as those who wear its namesake cap. Our brewers developed a silky, full-bodied wheat ale which we began fermenting with our house yeast strain. To finish the fermentation, we added our collection of barnyard bacteria, intended to slowly sour the ale, bringing out a slight funk and refreshing piquancy. Finally, a small dose of pureed raspberries were added for just a hint of fruity tannins, putting the berry in Beret.
Terruex - Gypsy TartThe Bruery
Placentia, CA
Red Ale
8.4% ABV
Gypsy Tart is a Flanders-style brown ale with a California touch. A beer that can trace it’s origins to Great Britain, but more famously perfected in western Belgium, has been updated through our own modern techniques, delivering the sweet body and mildly tart finish that has won over numerous generations of beer drinkers in Europe. Our rendition of this wonderful beer style is perfect for both sour beer amateurs and advocates alike.

Saison
8.5% ABV
Our tonnellerie series is the perfect showcase of what we mean when we say that we make "wildly traditional bière". Here we have taken our classic Saison Rue recipe, rich with rye malt, and allowed it to ferment spontaneously within extra large oak barrels that previously contained similarly wild beers. After enough time and plenty of wishful thinking, this brand new, earthy, complex, farmhouse ale developed into what was bottled up to enjoy. We find the rustic charm of fermenting a beer in this traditional method is mimicked in the flavor.
Trade WindsThe Bruery
Placentia, CA
Belgian Tripel
8% ABV25 IBU
Our Summer seasonal, Trade Winds Tripel is a Belgian-style Golden Ale with a Southeast Asian twist. Instead of using candi sugar (typical for such a beer), we use rice in the mash to lighten the body and increase the gravity, and spice with Thai Basil. The result is an aromatic, digestible and complex beer made for a lazy summer evening.
Trois Poules FrancaisThe Bruery
Placentia, CA
Fruit
10% ABV
For our third beer in the ‘12 Days of Christmas’ series we decided to take a little creative liberty when approaching the barrel aged version. We were able to acquire an abundance of syrah grapes from the Santa Ynez Valley, which are full of rich, dark berry flavors and a wisp of black pepper which seemed almost too perfect for Three French Hens. The grapes were pressed and the juice was added to the beer which was then aged in wine barrels for one year. The result is a satisfyingly tart, dark ale with hints of oak and dried fruit that finishes with a clean, vinous character typical of a deep red wine.
White ChocolateThe Bruery
Placentia, CA
Barleywine
14% ABV
The primary component of our “White Oak” ale is a 100% barrel aged wheat wine that we affectionately refer to as “White Oak Sap.” Essentially a “summer” barley-wine style ale, but made with a wheat heavy grain base, White Oak Sap is aged in used bourbon barrels for nearly a year and comes out rich in flavors of coconut, honey, caramel and vanilla. To compliment the already rich flavors of the beer, we’ve added cacao nibs and vanilla beans to give this beer the delicate flavor of white chocolate…hence the name.
