The Bruery Announces Next Virtual Happy Hour: All Things Barrel-Aging and Blending

ORANGE COUNTY, CA – The Bruery is excited to announce its next Virtual Happy Hour, focused on all things barrel-aging and blending, and this time they are bringing some friends along! Join them live on Friday, April 16th at 6:00 p.m. PDT (9:00 p.m. EDT) with experts from the beer, wine and spirits industries. Don’t forget to set a reminder and watch on Youtube or join on Facebook Live!

The Bruery started monthly Virtual Happy Hours last May as a way to bring folks together and enjoy a beer, even when they can’t get together in-person. Topics have ranged from the story behind new/upcoming releases, food and beer pairings with Chef Brooke Williamson, to the  science behind spontaneous fermentation, and a Master Cicerone panel. This week’s look at the art behind barrel-aging will be their best yet, and they’ve assembled a group that knows barrels inside and out.

The panel of experts is set to include:

Jeremy Grinkey | Director of Production, The Bruery

Patrick Rue | Winemaker in Training & Owner, Erosion Wine Co. and Founder, The Bruery

Nick Ison | Innovation Brewer, Barrel Lead, Sierra Nevada Brewing Co.

Isaac Winter | Blending and Distilling Manager, High West Distillery

Sean Sasscer | Brewing Director, Cigar City Brewing

Sara Laurienti | Director of Operations, Oskar Blues Brewery

The Bruery and Friends will walk everyone through various woods and spirits, how and why they choose certain barrels, the process behind blending, and finish off with questions from the audience (submit yours online now!) For all details, including how to order your pack to drink along with them, and to submit your own burning questions about barrel-aging and blending
