The Bruery (Placentia, California) has officially announced that it will begin the Limited Release of Bakery: Boysenberry Pie in late May/early June 2021.
Dropping as the latest release in The Bruery’s Bakery Series of pastry-inspired treats, Bakery: Boysenberry Pie is a “bourbon barrel-aged imperial stout with boysenberries, cinnamon, and vanilla.” An ode to the boysenberry and its “[deep roots] in the Orange County area,” the 10.2% ABV Bakery: Boysenberry Pie is “a slice of Southern California in your glass.”
“Bakery: Boysenberry Pie is our second Bakery release of 2021 and the first time this beer has hit distribution,” says Director of Production, Jeremy Grinkey. “Originally brewed for Knott’s Berry Farm’s Boysenberry Festival, we fell in love with this pie beer and we think it’s a fitting Southern California classic! Boysenberry and cinnamon collide in the bourbon barrel-aged stout that brings all of the pleasant memories of a fresh-baked pie.”
Bakery: Boysenberry Pie is rolling out now and will be available only as long as supplies last. You can expect to find this Limited Release available in 16 oz. cans and on draft at select craft beer-focused establishments located in California and throughout the rest of The Bruery’s 28-state distribution area. Prost!
