This time of year is exciting for numerous reasons but none can beat out Russian River Week at TBC. This annual fete is held to honor the release of the coveted Pliny the Younger. This will most likely be happening in the early weeks of February. We will be showering you with all the Russian River we can get our hands on and have hoarded throughout the year.
Another great year of beer at TBC has passed and we are still reaping the rewards of Jerrod's hard work. The More Cowbell! Milk Stout was a delicious success. Enjoy it while it lasts because it's time at TBC is running out but don't worry, I have a strong feeling Jerrod will be revisiting this gem of a recipe.
On the flip side, we will be temporarily out of Blimp Hangar Porter in the very near future. It will be brewed this week or next & we will be ordering the also very tasty Deschutes Black Butte Porter to soften the blow. These things happen and allow us to bring you Jerrod's specialties, like the aforementioned More Cowbell! Milk Stout. And for that, you're welcome. Especially loved the casks and the Kean coffee version. Can't wait for more coffee beers.
You won't have to wait long for more adventures in beer as next week Jerrod will be brewing an IPA with a experimental hop, Azacca. Don't worry, this will not affect our Old Town brewing schedule. I should mention that we have been consistently increasing our production of Old Town, but my goodness people, your thirst for it is apparently insatiable & exponential. And for that we thank you; it's a good problem to have.
Moving on, very soon we will be tapping Firestone Walker Double DBA & when we do, the first 48 people who order it will be getting a recently updated Firestone Walker pint glass to have and to hold til death parts you with it. Or you break it. Expect this little bit of fun and freebies this week.
That's your beer future in a nutshell, or 5 nutshells.

Just (barely) in time for the holidays, we are pleased to announce that TBC will be celebrating the season with twelve days of gifts, giving and deals for our adoring fans; you and yours. Some of these days are exclusive to Mug Club members because, well because they're more special. Kidding. Kind of. Anyway, we understand it's not the traditional 12 Days of Christmas, but hey, it's what we've got. Two of these events deserve specials attention and some explanation:
Debut of the Ballast Point Distillery Cocktail Menu
Ballast Point, as you very well know (or at least should...), is a California Craft Brewery but some of you may not know they also make kick ass spirits. We joined together to create a new TBC drink list. If you have a favorite liquor you should absolutely taste theirs. Support the craft & drink (semi) local spirits, you'll be glad you did. We kick off the 12 days of Christmas with a discount on any of our new signature Ballast Point cocktails. Mug Club members will receive $2 off and $1 off for everyone else (when will you get on board people, may I suggest the 16th...).
TBC's Annual Toy Drive & Customer Appreciation Party 2-5 pm
Saturday 12/21, pre-party at TBC for whatever holiday obligation you have that evening. We will be collecting unwrapped toys (valued at $10 or more) and you will enjoy $2 mugs, $3 pints and special food items at special prices. Come let us enjoy you...

Great things come from hanging out at the bar drinking craft beers. Interests are shared, ideas planted and -- if you're lucky -- every so often something actually comes to fruition.
One such interaction between two Tustin Brewery regulars has lead to a “first ever” for us here at TBC.
It combines what I can only assume are two of your favorite things: fantastic craft beer & great food.
There was talk of doing this particular “first ever” pairing event in conjunction with the anniversary party, but we missed that August date by a few weeks (see you on the 25th to celebrate!). But what are you gonna do?
So, without further ado, may I present you with your next unique culinary experience: the Tustin Brewing Company Beer Dinner...
Join us on our patio for an intimate gathering under the stars . It's a shotgun wedding for Mexican and English cuisine & everyone knows a good wedding has plenty of great beer. So come delight in inspired fare paired with "beer as it should be" in the company of fellow craft beer and food lovers.
Seating is very limited, so be warned procrastinators, you don't want to miss out. This dinner is only $40 for Mug Club Members & $45 for everyone who, for some reason, has not gotten on that boat (what ARE you waiting for?!). Tax & gratuity not included.
