It is well known that I am a huge fan of the Bruery and hoard a lot of their beers.  Through several trades over the past couple of months, I was able to acquire both of the beers that the Bruery has produced in their Vitis series.  The Vitis series is a small series of beers that they are producing a beer with grapes and aging in wine barrels.  To date they have only produced two beers in this series but both selections have been very tasty.

Both of these beers were great on their own but I preferred the Chardonnay version better as I thought it pulled more of the dryness of the wine from the barrel.
