You may not have noticed it, but Rubicon Brewing is quietly raising lots of money for local charities. Their 501c Wednesdays have hosted a variety of organizations who get a cut from the daily till and a chance to promote their organization to the beer loving public.

This Saturday, Rubicon will host the Northern California Brewers Guild and the California Small Brewers Association for a fundraiser for the craft beer industry itself. Both organizations are active in promoting craft beer among consumers, businesses and lawmakers. The highlight of this event, without a doubt, will be the two silent auctions of rare beer. How rare? Some of these beers have never even been for sale to the public.

Autographed Life and Limb
If you are a collector of celebrity memorabilia and autographs, you’ll want to take home one of these bottles of Life and Limb, a collaborative beer between Sierra Nevada and Dogfish Head. Both owners, Ken Grossman and Sam Calagione, have autographed the bottles. As they are both rockstars in the beer world and Ken’s autograph on items is pretty rare, these should fetch a good price.

A trio of Veritas, by Lost Abbey Brewing 

If you, like many others, are going crazy for sour beers, you will want to take home a trio of Veritas from Lost Abbey. All three are barrel-aged, experimental sours that are generally only available for purchase from the brewery itself on a special release day. Get funky!

…And there are many, many more, including verticals of different vintages of cellar selections from Lagunitas, Sierra Nevada, Ballast Point, Mad River, and North Coast, and special selections deep from the cellars of brewers across California. Beers are still trickling in to Rubicon, so there will be a number of surprises being added to the books until Saturday.

If this wasn’t enough, Rubicon will have specials on BBQ and guest beers all day long. Auctions will last from 1-4pm and 5-8pm.

For Immediate Release: August 24, 2011

First annual ‘Rare Beer Auction’ to be held in Sacramento

(Sacramento, CA)  – Brewers from all over California are digging deep into the far crevices of their cellars to bring some of their most extraordinary, rare, and treasured beers to the public for the first annual “California Rare Beer Auction” to be held at the Rubicon Brewing Company in Sacramento on Saturday, September 10th.

These beer offerings are typically only known within a small circle of brewers and beer enthusiasts, and most have never been available to the public before. Proceeds from this silent auction will benefit the California Small Beer Association and the Northern California Brewers Guild - two important organizations that support and protect the California craft beer industry.

Some of the items being auctioned include: vertical flights of aged beers, a cuvee especial Belgian quad aged in a 56 year old brandy barrel, various ‘collaborations’ between multiple brewers, and multiple ‘wood barrel-aged’ beers. Most of the auction items are packaged in large, cork-finished custom bottles.

The bbq will be fired up on the Rubicon patio and, of course, a wide variety of beer will be available on draft. There is no admission fee, so come on down and head home with a beer that no one else will have ever seen before!

The Northern California Brewers Guild’s mission is to promote the common interests of their members and the licensed craft brewing industry in Northern California.

The California Small Brewers Association is the state trade association and acts to protect the political and legal rights of the California craft brewing industry.
