Firestone Walker Bretta Weisse Release Party July 12

Firestone-Walker-Bretta-WeisseBarrelworks party! Firestone Walker’s latest barrel-aged creation is ready to see the light of day, with Bretta Weisse slated to be unveiled at their Barrelworks facility on Saturday, July 12. The release party will be a strictly ticketed event (Barrelworks will not be open to the public that day) due to the beer’s exceedingly limited availability (by FW’s standards anyways).

Tickets include:

  • (4) 375mL bottles of Bretta Weisse (retail price of $10.99 + tax & CRV)
  • Souvenir tasting snifter
  • Tastings of rare/one-off Barrelworks beers
  • 10% discount on food purchase at the Buellton Taproom Restaurant

Commercial description:

Imagine yourself in Berlin’s Tiergarten enjoying this refreshing Berliner Weisse inspired beer on a warm summer’s day. Bretta Weisse honors the traditional beverage of the great Prussian capital, Berlin. Fredrick-the-Great was trained to brew it, and Napoleon’s troops called it “The champagne of the North”. Firm estery notes of stone and tropical fruit lead to Funky, yeasty, citrus aromas. Soft cereal and Oak flavors are enveloped by a firm acidity and tartness. The finish is dry and crisp; a thoroughly enjoyable beverage. At 4.9% ABV, one could imagine enjoying several Bretta Weisse’s in the Tiergarten, or anywhere else. This Berliner Weisse inspired Wheat beer was aged in 1700 gal French Oak horizontal foeders for 8 months.

Firestone Walker Barrelworks is located at 620 McMurray Rd in Buellton, CA.
