NEW STUFF - Wild Beer from the UK

25/01/2017

GDay, 
Finally got Ian out the door to go hang with Gorillas. In his absense we have some new release beers from Wild Beer. 

The Somerset brewery is highly regarded in its home country for the production of all manner of ales (plus the odd smoked lager), particularly – as the name suggests – focusing on those with some degree of wild fermentation.  

Wild Beer / Burning Sky / Good George Shnoodlepip Sour Ale 6.5% 750ml

The next beer to appear this summer will be one of the most exciting we are yet to be involved with…
A collaboration of 3 brewers, 3 nationalities and 6 ideas.
Somerset Sharpham Park Spelt has been used for a full body. Pink peppercorns give a gentle sweet spiciness. Saison and Brettanom
yces yeast strains lead to a dry spicy character that will continue to evolve. Wood-ageing in French red wine barrels for 4 months adds depth and oak. Passion-fruit brings a tart tropical fruit character. The 4 month ageing process has been finished off with amazingly tangy Hibiscus flowers. That is one shnoodlepippin beer!

Wild Beer Evolver IPA 5.8% 330ml


The exploration of yeast strains and the different results we can achieve are beautifully exemplified in Evolver, a pale ale with a difference. 100% fermented with Brettanomyces. For the first 3 months the beer tastes the same as a fresh pale ale, then the differing flavour compounds start to shine through and after 6 months the Brett really takes hold. This is a beer that can be drunk fresh, as a normal pale ale or left to evolve and mature into a unique and unusual beer.

Wild Beer Modus Operandi Sour Red / Brown Ale 7% 330ml

Barrel ageing, blending and using different yeasts, this embraces our love of the unpredictability of wild yeast with the subtlety
 and complexity of maturation in oak barrels. A study in patience, it takes at least 90 days for the wild yeast to work its magic. A transformation of an old English ale into a beer that is Wildly different. A unique, dark, flavourful beer with a smooth, rich, full body and complex fruit flavours of berries, sweet cherries and tannins.

Wild Beer Sleeping Lemons Gose 6% 750ml


We have been preserving lemons in salt and lemon juice throughout the winter, ready to brew this refreshing, zesty summer special. Gose, is a traditional German-style sour wheat beer, usually brewed with coriander and salt. Once nearly extinct, this very refreshing style is making a comeback and we thought it would provide the perfect backbone to this wonderfully complex summer beer.
