Natalie Cilruzo of Russian River post a few notes today on the impending release of Sierra Nevada/Russian River Brux collaboration arriving in July.
I’m sure many of you have heard about our collaboration with Sierra Nevada Brewing Company! This 2 year, 2 brewery, 2 family project is about to hit the streets and hopefully make it to a bottle shop near you! Set for National Release in July (I bet you thought you would never hear me say something like that!), BRUX was brewed in Chico (at Sierra Nevada) and will go through their distribution channels, which will, of course, greatly increase your chances of getting a couple of bottles. BRUX is a “domesticated wild ale”, or an ale fermented with Belgian yeast, finished by a secondary bottle fermentation with Brettanomyces bruxellensis. It’s a little more than 8% alcohol, very dry, earthy, spicy, and tasty.
Through distribution, you’ll see 750 ml bottles. The very little draft available will tap at Sierra Nevada & Russian River’s tap rooms during the month. July 5th Brux taps at Russian River. On July 9th the beer will tap at Sierra Nevada.
