It's been nearly a year since Orange County has had the pleasure of welcoming Bottle Logic Brewing to its beerscape, and now its time to celebrate said year with some drinking of epic proportions. The Bottle Logic birthday party will consist of an entire week of specialty beer releases that they're coining as the Week of Logic. This seven-day event is open to the public and will showcase a different barrel-aged beer each day from March 22 to 28.
Beers like an original barrel of their Buffalo Trace bourbon barrel-aged Darkstar November imperial stout, Sour Prince aged in oak barrels, and Dr. Strangematter aged in chardonnay barrels will hit the taproom stage, surely dazzling your barrel-loving tastebuds. But don't think this will be a week of best hits. Naturally, the Bottle Logic team has plenty of new beers to release, such as their Sangria Tripel aged in red and white wine barrels and their Cobalitc Porter aged in Nicaraguan rum barrels.
Bottle Logic founder Steve Napolitano says the week will be, "an experiment–a fun exploration, kind of like our beers."
While each day that week will offer something new and tasty to try, the mother of all releases is scheduled for the last day of the festivities. Bottle Logic will introduce their anniversary beer: Ideation, a wheat wine aged for 10 months in Heaven Hill bourbon barrels. This brew couldn't be a better salute to the time, dedication and quirk incorporated in the lovable brewery.
An uncommon style of beer, this hyper hopped and slightly sweet barrel aged wheat wine fits with the aesthetic, style, and originality that is Bottle Logic Brewing.
Another feature of Bottle Logic's Week of Logic is their custom designed passports intended for those über passionate BL fans who plan to drink their way through the week. These passports will allow avid attendees to jot down notes on these special beers and collect stamps for each beer they drink. Bottle Logic will reward these tenacious passport holders with prizes corresponding to varied levels of stamp collection.
Congrats on your first year of production, Bottle Logic. We look forward to more.
