MEAFORD, ON – Still Fields Brewery has announced the release of a new vintage of a limited edition beer with a simple and descriptive name.
Wild Ale 2022 (5.6% abv):
Wild Ale was brewed utilizing our saison recipe with a blend of barley and flaked wheat and bittered with our cascade hops. Rather than pitching yeast we left the wort outside overnight to naturally cool in a “coolship”. In the process of cooling the wort was exposed to the air where wild yeast and bacteria inoculated it. The following morning the wort was transferred into our Wild Ale barrel to undergo a spontaneous fermentation. After months of aging we blended the Wild Ale with 1/3 fresh, actively fermenting Wild Ale and sent it straight to bottles. The result is a well carbonated beer with notes of lemony tang, brown sugar, white grape, and a touch of funk.
Wild Ale 2022 is available now at the Still Fields retail store and online shop.
