In 2019, The Wild Beer Co, and Firestone Walker Barrelworks once again pull two continents together or the uniquely imaginative Violet Underground Cross-Atlantic Wild Ale. To create this cuvee, we tapped into native Somerset Wild, a proprietary wild yeast used solely by Wild Beer Co. at their facility in England. Sunrise Raspberries and a youthful batch of Bretta Weisse were aged in French Oak Foeders. This aromatic concoction was then blended with a mystical fermentation of French candied violet petals and Somerset Wild Saison. The resulting potion is bursting with aromas of ripe fresh fruit and hints of botanical spice. All anchored together with an expressive native wild yeast. A quenching acidity and lively carbonation round out the collaboration. Sante!
