The Bruery drops a new lager nationally – Ruekeller Helles

The Bruery Ruekeller Helles

The Bruery, nestled in Orange County, California, is known for a pretty wide range of styles from massive imperial and pastry stouts to saisons and wild ales. Even though the brewery said they were never going to stray into the American IPA world, they created their own opportunity to get hoppy and hazy (with a technical loophole) with the formulation of Offshoot Beer Co. Even with this proven versatility, The Bruery is releasing something a little more… refined this month – Ruekeller Helles Lager.

A “world-class” lager was the goal when the brew team set to work on Ruekeller’s creation nearly a year ago. Lagers are some of the most complicated beers to brew, and The Bruery took no shortcuts in this already highly touted release. The Helles is an all-German malt and hops recipe in keeping with style tradition. The final test batches released the taproom have received high marks on the beer rating app Untappd.

Much like The Bruery’s own name, “Ruekeller” is a play on brewery founder Patrick Rue’s name and Ruhkeller or “rest cellar,” where German lager beers are krausened.

The Bruery Ruekeller Helles will be available in full distribution in 16-ounce cans start in late January.

Style: Helles Lager
Hops: Magnum, Saaz
Malts: Pilsner

Availability: 16oz Cans, Draft.
Debut: Late January 2019

5.2% ABV

Brewing Up Savings for Your Business (Promoted)

Aprio Brewery Tax Incentives

There are two things in life nobody should ever say no to – free beer and free money. While Aprio doesn’t brew beer, we can brew up some serious savings for your business. 

Research & Development (R&D) tax credits are a quick way to put money back in your pocket, but most brewers have no idea that their businesses can claim them—that’s money left on the table that’s rightfully yours. The crazy thing is: brewers perform activities every day that qualify for an R&D credit—nothing you do needs to change. 

Every time you experiment with a new formula, play around with eclectic ingredients, or experiment with different strains of yeast or types of hops, you’re doing R&D. Every time you adjust your production or canning process to make it cheaper, faster or better, you’re doing R&D, and the costs of this labor, ingredients and other supplies can all be taken into consideration for the credit.

We have extensive and expert experience in this industry and have helped several breweries recapture their hard-earned dollars. We can do the same for you, with minimal cost and minimal disruption to your routine. Why pay that money to the IRS when you can use it to reinvest in your company? Even if you aren’t paying taxes just yet, you could still get some cash back to do with what you please.

It’s a pretty simple question – do you want some free money? Let us buy you a beer and see how we can help you.
