Has anyone tried beer from "The Bruery" in caifornia.
The beer is very well made. If anyone has tried there beer.
My question is "do you think the yeast in the bottle is the same as the brew yeast?"
I was thinking I might want to plate the yeast and give it go. I thought rugbrod and ther wit was quit good.

Luckywin,
I'm "lucky" to live a few miles from the Bruery. I haven't tried to culture the yeast but I wouldn't be surprised if it is the fermentation strain. The brewer doesn't need to protect a proprietary yeast strain the way a Trappist brewer might since the beers are based on unusual styles and strange ingredients (and are priced fairly high). My 0.02. Report back if you have success harvesting the yeast.

We get a few of them here and they're always good. Differring takes on Belgian brews. I'd guess any yeast if it is the fermentation strain is pretty worn out from the high gravity fermentations. The wit one might be in good shape.

The wit is very good. I have a bottle Rugbrod with me now. I would stir up the lees in this bottle only the hurricane is 12 hours away so, cheers. I will have to do it after the storm.

My coworker and I tried to go to a sheet bar down the street. They had a private party there. We went to the sheet bar across the street. Punk band playing, $5 cover. So, off to the Bruery, who's tasting room is only open Fri and Sat nights. I had the Autumn Maple. Yummy.

A buddy got me their saison for my birthday last year and it was fantastic, however we can only get them at one store here and at quite a premium. I'd be very happy to see them expand their distribution round these parts.
