Warmer and its fresh spruce tips from the San Bernardino mountains kept us toasty through the cold months of December and January, but it’s about time for it to pass the Local Fields torch to our next release in the series. On January 18th we’ll be debuting this year’s batch of Vinaceous. Brewed in the style of an Old English Ale, we load Vinaceous with freshly crushed Mourvedre grapes from our friends at Wilson Creek Winery in Temecula. The resulting beer is a unique fusion of the deep, malty flavors of a traditional English ale accentuated by the dark fruit flavor of wine grapes and a touch of oak character.

We’ll be opening our doors at 11am on January 18th, and you'll be able to purchase Vinaceous in pints, growlers and 22oz bombers. As an additional celebration we’ll also be pouring 3oz tasters and half-pints of a limited amount of Vinaceous that’s been resting in Brandy Barrels.

It’s not a celebration without good music so we’ve got The Higgs lined up to take the stage from 3-6pm to start the night off, followed by GrooveSession from 7-10pm.

The Big Easy Sandwich will have the food side of things covered, serving their take on traditional New Orleans fare from 2-8pm. You’ll be able to try their take on Cajun fish and chips or grab a wedge off a traditional Muffuletta sandwich.

As with all our releases, we’ll be opening Vinaceous up a few days early for our frequent flyers. Here’s when each level will be able to come on by for pints or a growler fill in the week leading up to the official release:

Platinum: Monday 1/13 Release
Gold: Tuesday 1/14 Release
Silver: Wednesday 1/15 Release
Bronze: Friday 1/17 Release

We can’t wait for you to try this year’s batch of Vinaceous, it’s just the first in a long line of exciting releases we’ve got lined up in the first half of the new year. Whether you stay for the music and food or grab a few bottles to go (Vinaceous is a great choice to lay down in your cellar), we look forward to seeing you on January 18th!
