Style: Rye Beer
Brewery: The Bruery website
Region: Placentia, California
How served: 750ml capped bottle poured into a Delirium Tremens glass.
My Overall Opinion: Very Good.
I paired this beer with: a good Stilton cheese.
Tasted on: Wednesday January 27, 2010.
Note: This is a beer worth trying, but don’t be upset if you can’t find it. It was very drinkable and I gave it a high rating, as it is very good for its style, but it is not an Oh My G-d beer. This is a beer to be enjoyed & will not overwhelm or underwhelm you.
On the Label: Unfiltered Bottle-Conditioned. Julebryg-Style Dark Rye Ale. A deep autumn colored robust Danish-style ale with spicy rye, and caramelly, bready malts. Rugbrød Rye ale is suitable for aging up to two years when cellared properly, around 55° f (13° c) in a dark place. Best served at 50° f (10° c). Pour carefully, leaving the yeast sediment behind in the bottle. Best served in a tulip or wine glass. For proper pronunciation, chef recommended food pairing and recipes, please visit our website.
From their website: 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?) And don’t worry about the name, we can’t pronounce it either! But we do have a video of us and a lot of others trying our best at http://www.vimeo.com/7504797.
