Bruery Terreux – The New O.C. Destination

Bruery Terreux: Frucht

When life gives you lemons, make lemonade – or – when mixed-culture fermentation contaminates your clean beer, build a beautiful new tasting room. Walking around the brand new Bruery Terreux tasting room – which opens today – its strikes me that this beautiful space, accented with herringbone wood and barrels stacked to the rafters, only exists because of a serious crisis moment for The Bruery.

So its a good thing



A Weekend Trip To The South Bay Breweries

“Are there any South Bay beer things you want to do on saturday” asked my girlfriend via a Skype IM on friday afternoon. “There’s always beer things I want to do…” was my natural response. She, of course, wanted to take advantage of the beautiful weather and visit the beach, where I could drop her off and hit up a few of the local breweries and taprooms on my own. Win-win situation, of course. After
