Ep. 104 - (512) Brewing Wild Bear Sour Ale

“An intelligent man is sometimes forced to be drunk to spend time with his fools.”

- Ernest Hemingway

We're taking in a classic Texas craft brewer: (512) Brewing out of Austin and their Wild Bear sour ale.

The Beer

WILD BEAR SOUR ALE

Official Description: 

Wild Bear begins as a double brown ale brewed with over 85% organic ingredients and fermented with brewer's yeast in stainless. Next it's transformed through aging in a large oak tank, called a foeder, for 20 months with added Brettanomyces yeast and Pediococcus bacteria. This combination of wild "bugs" and oak aging yields a complex and enticing aroma of classic Brett funkiness, cherries, vanilla, and a crisp, yet malty, tart flavor that will intensify with age, and an effervescent, oaky finish that leaves the palate clean.
