In 2013, The Bruery released OR XATA to its Preservation Society, a paid club whose members receive exclusive beers that are not available to the general public; now, the beer will become a seasonal release.
The 7.2 percent ABV blond ale is brewed with rice, cinnamon and vanilla beans, and the idea and ingredients used in the beer are meant to simulate horchata, a drink that has become popular in Southern California.
“Horchata is one of our favorite drinks, refreshing alongside a spicy dish or just for sipping on a lazy afternoon,” reads the beer label. “Our take on the traditional agua fresco incorporates rice and lactose along with spices for that sweet, creamy character that we’ve come to love.”
According to filings with the Alcohol and Tobacco Tax and Trade Bureau (TTB) and the Placentia, Calif.-based brewery’s website, the new limited release will be packaged in 750ml bottles. An email sent to the brewery for additional details was was immediately returned.
