I was lucky enough to have had the privilege of attending the 2011 Black Tuesday release party last night at The Bruery in Orange County, California. Patrick Rue and his team were all there at the 1930’s gangster/Great Depression themed event, dressed in their pinstripe suits and two toned shoes. This years Black Tuesday weighs in at 18.3 % ABV. Slightly lower than in past years, but everyone agrees that it improves each year as the brewers gain more and more experience brewing extremely high gravity beers. One of this years variations was S’more Tuesday, brewed with crushed graham crackers, marshmallows, and cocoa nibs. It definitely sounds unusual, but all the flavors come through and created one exciting beer. Unusual is what everyone has come to expect from The Bruery anyway. Looking forward to popping one of these bottles over the holidays and busting out the rest over the next few years. Cheers!
