Beer # 68 Bruery Rugbrød

 
 

The Bruery's Rugbrød

Name: Rugbrød

Style:  Rye Beer

Brewery: The Bruery website

Country: USA

Region:  Placentia, California

ABV: 8.0%

How served: 750ml capped bottle poured into a Delirium Tremens glass.     

My Overall Opinion: Very Good.

I paired this beer with: a good Stilton cheese.

Tasted on:  Wednesday January 27, 2010.

Note:  This is a beer worth trying, but don’t be upset if you can’t find it.  It was very drinkable and I gave it a high rating, as it is very good for its style, but it is not an Oh My G-d beer.  This is a beer to be enjoyed & will not overwhelm or underwhelm you.

On the Label: Unfiltered Bottle-Conditioned. Julebryg-Style Dark Rye Ale.  A deep autumn colored robust Danish-style ale with spicy rye, and caramelly, bready malts. Rugbrød Rye ale is suitable for aging up to two years when cellared properly, around 55° f (13° c) in a dark place. Best served at 50° f (10° c).  Pour carefully, leaving the yeast sediment behind in the bottle.  Best served in a tulip or wine glass.  For proper pronunciation, chef recommended food pairing and recipes, please visit our website. 

From their website:  Meaning “rye bread” in Danish, we took our inspiration for this beer from the Danes’ staple dark, whole-grain rye bread. Brewed with three types of rye malt, this robust brown ale showcases the earthy, spicy character of the grain, complemented by bready, nutty barley malts and a hint of roast. Loosely based on the Scandinavian Christmas beer or “Julebryg” tradition, this beer is perfect for the colder weather of winter, although it will be available year-round (because who doesn’t love a dark beer now and again, regardless of weather?) And don’t worry about the name, we can’t pronounce it either! But we do have a video of us and a lot of others trying our best at http://www.vimeo.com/7504797.

ABV: 8%, IBU: 30, SRM: 18, Release: Limited Year Round

  1. This is suppose to be one of the ones we get down here when the Bruery hits shelves this weeks so I am looking forward to trying it.

  2. Thanks for the heads up on that. I just came back from T.W. and was happy to see they have 5 Bruery brews.

    Again awesome news for S. Florida, the beer scene is really improving here on a monthly basis now.

    If I were you , I’ll buy a few 2 turtle doves. 1 to drink now the others to save and drink over time. They were
    made to age and drink in 2019 as part of the 12 days of Christmas.
