The Bruery Announces its Next Virtual Happy Hour: All Things Barrel-Aging and Blending

ORANGE COUNTY, CA (April 13, 2021) – The Bruery is excited to announce its next Virtual Happy Hour, focused on all things barrel-aging and blending, and this time they are bringing some friends along!

The Bruery started monthly Virtual Happy Hours last May as a way to bring folks together and enjoy a beer, even when they can’t get together in-person. Topics have ranged from the story behind new/upcoming releases, food and beer pairings with Chef Brooke Williamson, to the science behind spontaneous fermentation, and a Master Cicerone panel. This week’s look at the art behind barrel-aging will be their best yet, and they’ve assembled a group that knows barrels inside and out.

The panel of experts is set to include:

  • Jeremy Grinkey | Director of Production, The Bruery
  • Patrick Rue | Winemaker in Training & Owner, Erosion Wine Co. and Founder, The Bruery
  • Nick Ison | Innovation Brewer, Barrel Lead, Sierra Nevada Brewing Co.
  • Isaac Winter | Blending and Distilling Manager, High West Distillery
  • Sean Sasscer | Brewing Director, Cigar City Brewing
  • Sara Laurienti | Director of Operations, Oskar Blues Brewery
