Located in in Placentia, CA, The Bruery is one of my favorite breweries. I love the beer, I love the Twelve Days of Christmas themed beers (along with every beer I’ve tasted from there) and I love how the owner, Patrick Rue, took his last name and turned it into a great name for a brewery.
In reference to an earlier post, the Twelve Days of Christmas series is part of a “vertical” series of beers that’s released each year around the holidays. Now in its fourth year, 4 Calling Birds was the most recent release. Some people get a bottle or two each year when they release the next one in the line and some people get at least two bottles so they can drink one now and save one for that magical day when they have all twelve from the series in their collection.
I know 2019 sounds like a LONG time to wait to drink a beer, but believe it or not, there are many beer lovers who are doing just that. I’ve been lucky enough to have 3 French Hens and now 4 Calling Birds, and someday, I hope to acquire the first two and start a collection of the “Twelve Days of Christmas” myself.
