The Bruery OR XATA, a Horchata Inspired Seasonal

The Bruery OR XATA

The Bruery (Placentia, CA) is just launched a new nationally distributed, seasonal release, OR XATA. The new offering is based on horchata, a Spanish/Latin American milky drink, made from crushed almonds or rice.

The Bruery OR XATA is a base blonde ale, brewed with rice, cinnamon, vanilla beans and lactose, to give the beer a creamy mouthfeel.

Horchata is a traditional, sweet, milky drink originating in Spain and Latin America that has become quite popular in Southern California, particularly with Mexican cuisine. Our take on the traditionally non-alcoholic drink is a blonde ale brewed with a heavy dosing of rice, cinnamon and fresh vanilla beans along with lactose for a litle extra creamy character. If you didn’t know better, you’d think it was carbonated horchata. The flavor is hard to describe, but for those who know it, you know you love it.

The Bruery OR XATA is available in 750ml bottles.
