Does that mean that they weren't technically allowed to sell beer to go in the past or is this a new location?

Hey everyone,

Our anniversary party is tomorrow and sunday! We can't believe it is here so quickly and we have a few things for you to know, so please read below.

First of all, online ticket sales are only available until 3pm today!! So head over to get your tickets immediately if you haven't yet.
http://www.brueryprovisions.com/Anniversary-Celebration_c_179.html

For those who are still on the fence, we will have extra tickets for sale at the door. It will be cash only and will cost a total of $43.50

Now, for those of you who frequent the Tasting Room. As we have noted, we are open tonight, and even have Kogi BBQ coming by, but the Tasting Room is closed for the party on Saturday and Sunday, so if you don't have a ticket to the party, you aren't getting in to drink beer and eat food.

We will not be doing any growler fills at the party, sorry, there will simply be too many poeple to accomodate for that, so please leave your growlers at home.

If you are a Reserve Society member and purchased allocations of Melange #3 or 100% Barrel Aged Coton, they will be available for pickup Saturday & Sunday if you are at the party, and if not, and weekend at the Tasting Room starting next week.

If you are not a Reserve Society member, or are one but just can't get enough beer, the general release of Coton will be available for only $15 during the anniversary party and will jump back up to $20 at the Tasting Room starting next week.

And finally, we are insanely excited to see you all this weekend and have been prepping food and beer all week long, so come hungry and thirsty!!!

Thanks for helping us celebrate this exciting occasion!

Cheers,
The Bruery

Nah, they're opening up a new restaurant/bar. Gotta get a license for every property serving.

Dear Bruery fans,
We tricked you with our April newsletter when we announced the opening of The Bruery Bier Café.  Let’s consider that an April fools joke.  For a variety of reasons, that concept simply didn’t work out for us and we’re sorry to those who were excited for it. 
But, we’ve got something coming (for real this time) that we think is just as awesome, if not even awesome-er.  So without further meandering, we present to you:
The Bruery Provisions
This summer, The Bruery plans on opening The Bruery Provisions, a boutique bottle shop in Old Town Orange that specializes in craft beer as well as artisan wines, cheeses and charcuterie.  The Bruery Provisions hopes to provide the ideal destination for anyone looking to learn about and purchase an assortment of specialty beers from across the United States and beyond.  Not only will patrons be presented with a great selection of beers and cheeses to take home, there will also be a small tasting bar where beer and wine flights will change sporadically from week to week.  Certified Cicerones (read: beer sommeliers) will staff the store and lead customers on detailed samplings, helping them understand what flavors they sense and what beers they might enjoy taking home to share.  As Cicerones, the staff members are experts on pairing beers with food and cheese, so you can be sure to bring the perfect bottle to your dinner party along with a bit of insight.
New Beers

Coton – 2nd Annversary Ale
Released at our anniversary celebration just a couple of weeks ago, Coton  is a tribute to our second year as a brewery.  The same recipe as our first anniversary ale, Coton is an Old Ale that blends barrel aged beer along with a younger beer that was fermented with oak cubes.  It is a rich, complex beer with flavors of burnt sugar, oak and dark fruit along with a subtle warmth from its 14.5% alcohol.  Created using the Solera method, a portion of Papier had been saved in the barrels for the past two years and blended in with Coton to add even more age and complexity.  This method will continue in perpetuity, creating an older average age to the beer as time goes on.
The biggest achievement we’ve made with Coton vs. Papier might actually be that Coton will see a wide release.  As we have grown quite a bit since that first batch of Papier was brewed, we were able to get quite a bit more beer brewed and bottled for this batch and we plan on sending it throughout our distribution network.

Trade Winds Tripel
Our Summer seasonal is back!  Trade Winds is one of our favorite beers here at The Bruery and we’re always excited when it comes back around.  It is a Belgian golden strong that we brew with rice, and Thai basil.  The rice lends a subtle coconut character to the beer while keeping a light body to the 8% abv and the Thai basil adds a perfect balance of Asian flare.  We suggest sharing a bottle with friends while sitting by the pool and planning a trip to the tropical Thai islands.
 
Social Media
We really love having the opportunity to give instant updates and interact with all of you on a daily basis, so, we are doubling up the opportunity for you.
Intended more for our local fans, we now have a Facebook page and a twitter account for The Bruery Provisions.  Click HERE and ‘like’ us on Facebook and follow us on twitter at @brueryprovisie.  We’ll be using these accounts to give you updates on what new beers and other products have arrived at the store, what sort of events we have every week and running contests from time to time.
We also plan on implementing 4square deals at The Bruery Provisions, so make sure to check-in everytime you swing by the shop once it opens.
 
New Employees
We’ve got some new employees and some employees who have changed their positions here since the last update.
Kendra Birdwell
As our new Culinary Manager for The Brurey Provisions, Kendra has quickly won our affection, seeing as we all like food.  Coming to us from Whole Foods where she was the cheese monger, she is helping us put together an incredible selection of cheeses and other artisan foods for the new store.
Jared Dooley
Many of you already know Jared as “that guy with the beard who works at the Tasting Room”, but what you may not know is that he is now the Staff Manager for The Bruery Provisions.  Jared will be helping in all areas of the Provisions operations from beer and wine to ipod playlists, keeping the ambience just right.
Finally, we’d love to thank everybody who came out and helped us celebrate our 2nd anniversary a couple weeks back.  All of us at The Bruery loved having the chance to talk with our old friends and meet some new ones and it seemed to be a smashing success.  Can’t wait for Anniversary party number 3!
Cheers!
The Bruery

Dear Bruery fans,
To commemorate the opening of The Bruery Provisions, we're in need of new, original, beertastic t-shirt designs. Since our fans have such good taste in all things (especially beer), and some of you are talented designers and artists (or at least think you are after a couple of beers), we thought it would be great for you to come up with our next designs!
Head to http://www.thebruery.com/tshirtcontest.html for the full info, rules and terms and conditions or continue reading below.
The Prize:
The artists who design the two winning shirts will get a $50 gift card to the store as well as five (5) of their own t-shirts in whatever sizes they need for themselves and their friends. You can use the gift card for tasting flights, beer to go, cheese, more shirts, or whatever else it is that you want from The Bruery Provisions (though you must be 21 or older for any alcohol purchases).

Details:
-- We've posted our logo below if you'd like to use it for your design (but you don't have to use it). The sky is the limit. Colors, black and white, we don't care. It can just be a cool font for our name or it can be a drawing of a beer knight fighting a dragon. We just want to see the best you've got (that you think people want to wear)!
-- We will be deciding on two different designs to be made into shirts and sold at our new retail outlet, The Bruery Provisions in Old Towne Orange.
-- All designs should be submitted to benjamin@thebruery.com as a jpg. It does not need to be submitted on a tshirt template, but that might help it look good. If you are chosen as the winner, we will contact you for a better quality file (hopeully a psd, ai, eps or likewise so that our printer can scale it properly).
-- The deadline for submissions is Sunday, July 18, 2010 at 11:59 PM, PST.
-- There is no limit as to how many designs you submit, but you can only win for one (1) design.
-- Winners will be announced on or around Friday, July 23, 2010.
-- Questions can be submitted to benjamin@thebruery.com
-- Winners must verify that they agree to the legal conditions posted here.

Have fun! We can't wait to see what you come up with.
 
Cheers!
The Bruery

Hah, not quite. Their new tasting room manager is a guy named Jarod Dooley. Mine is Jared Dudley. Very confusing. He's an awesome guy.... but then again, aren't all Jareds? ;)

To all the loyal fans and retailers of our beer,

As we approach our 3rd anniversary, it's incredible to look back at the journey of these last few years. Our growth has been of a magnitude that we never could have imagined when brewing our first 15-barrel batch. As you might already know, we've been operating at capacity for over the last year and a half; a near doubling of capacity in January of this year has been a mere drop in the bucket. We've reached a fork in the road. One path is to open a much larger brewery that would satisfy demand over the long term, and accumulate millions in debt and bring on outside investors to get to that point. The other path is renewal of our original vision: a small, family-owned business making some of the most interesting, highest-quality specialty beers available in the market in our own unique way. After much debate, research and soul-searching, we've chosen the latter path – but on a grander scale.

We have just leased a temperature controlled warehouse space that we will be filling with thousands of oak barrels, allowing us to create some of our favorite beers such as Oude Tart, Melange #3, and a variety of other delicious and innovative beers. We're extremely excited for this cellar expansion both because it will allow our creativity to shine and because it will help us get our favorite beers into more glasses in more cities. Since day one at The Bruery, we've been making barrel aged ales with an eventual goal to fill shelves with these complex and full-bodied beers. Until now, we have only been able to do this on a limited basis, primarily reaching only those in our Reserve Society. This new investment will allow us to brew more, distribute more and get more specialty beer into the marketplace.

With this change, we have had to make room in our brewing schedule to brew the beers that we'll be barrel aging. Unfortunately, Orchard White is the victim. While we have great love for Orchard White, we feel there are many great witbiers available and believe our limited resources are best spent elsewhere. Further, Rugbrød will now only be available in the fall and winter, with Hottenroth taking it's place in the spring and summer beginning in 2012.

As a company focused on quality over quantity, and founded on the basic fact that making beer is fun, we're excited to continue brewing up our dream. We won't be putting down our mash paddles in place of mechanized processes, we won't be switching our khaki shorts for navy-blue suits and most importantly, we won't be sacrificing our original vision for any reason whatsoever. Simply said, we are growing at our own pace.

Thank you all for the support these past three years. It's your love of style-bending beers that have helped us, and breweries like us, to grow and will keep us growing in the years to come. If you can make it, we'd love to see you at our 3rd Anniversary Beer Festival on May 29th to help us celebrate our future!

Cheers,
Your Friends at The Bruery

Hey there beer lover!

Looking for a bit of input on a beer. I'm thinking of brewing a pilot batch (93 gallons) of a thai iced tea beer-- is this something you'd want to try? It would be quite sweet with a strong tea flavor, served flat with ice and condensed milk. Delicious or disgusting?

The 2014 Reserve Society
New Member Sales begin on October 15th
Friends of The Bruery! 
 
There are still many beers, nights at the Tasting Room and exciting events remaining this year, but it is also time to plan ahead to 2014 and consider joining our Reserve Society! 
 
Some advantages of becoming a Reserve Society member include the opportunity to purchase multiple bottles of some of our rarest beers as well as a 15% discount on all of your beer and Tasting Room purchases.  We will ship beer to our California members or we will hold the beer for you at our Tasting Room so you can come pick it up in person.
 
Membership to our Reserve Society is limited since we can only make a finite amount of beer and we are currently offering preferential renewals to our 2013 Reserve Society members. Our Preservation Society members will then have a private pre-sale. There are still a few days before the end of the quarter if you would like to join the Preservation Society and have a chance for early admittance to the Reserve Society. 
 
On October 15th, any and all remaining spots in the Reserve Society will open up to the public!
 
We'll send you a message to remind you that the sale has begun, but in the meantime, you can look over some of the fantastic beer offerings for 2014 on our website at www.thebruery.com/reservesociety
 
We hope to see you at our Reserve Society initiation celebration in early 2014!
 
Cheers,
The Bruery
