The Bruery Cuivre (16.2% ABV) | Beer Geek Nation Craft Beer Reviews

The traditional 7th anniversary gift is copper, so we’ve named our 7th anniversary ale “Cuivre” which is “copper” in French. Cuivre is loosely brewed in the English-style Old Ale tradition using our house Belgian yeast strain and then blended using the solera method. A portion of each of our anniversary ales is saved in our barrels and blended in with the next year’s production, providing more complexity and depth of character that comes with age. Layered with complex flavors of dark fruit,vanilla, oak, and burnt sugar, Cuivre is a robust ale, surely the perfect beer to mark this major milestone.
