Council Brewing Company is celebrating our 3rd Anniversary with a huge, outdoor, 50+ beer tap list extravaganza on June 10th, 2017 (VIP Session 11AM – 5PM, General Session 12PM – 5PM).

For this special occasion, we are taking over the adjacent parking lot to extend our party outside and enjoy the beautiful San Diego summer weather. Of the 50+ beers, over 30 are barrel aged, foeder aged, and sour beers! In honor of our Anniversary, we will also be debuting our Biere De Miel Third Anniversary Bottle Release at the party.  This 11.2% ABV farmhouse, highly carbonated, honey beer is inspired by celebratory Champagne style wines. In keeping with this and to bring out all the complex flavors and effervescence of this rare and special beer, we only packaged this beer in corked and caged bottles – there are no kegs of this beer. We hope you will join us for a special toast with this beer at 1:30pm and take home some bottles to share with friends.

Mastiff Sausage Food Truck will be here all day, so come hungry. More details and surprises regarding the celebration to be released over the next few weeks. Cheers to 3 years!
