Over nine months after it was brewed and put into barrels, the collaboration between The Bruery and Prairie Artisan Ales is almost ready.
The new release is being released under The Bruery’s Terreux brand and is named Prairie Rue, a 6.9 percent ABV farmhouse ale fermented in oak barrels. The beer was originally brewed at Placentia, Calif.-based The Bruery in November 2014, during a week that also included brewing a separate collaboration with Jester King Brewery.
According to Benjamin Weiss, The Bruery manager of sales and marketing, Prairie Rue will be released exclusively to members of the brewery’s Horders and Reserve Societies will be packaged in 750ml bottles. It will not be available in Prairie’s home state of Oklahoma since The Bruery does not distribute in that state.
Although production numbers were not known, the new bottle-conditioned beer is scheduled to be released “next month.”
