Harry's Wine & Spirits is teaming up with B. United & Wild Beer Co for a very unique beer class and tasting on Thursday, February 19th 7-9pm. The Wild Beer Co was set up in September 2012 by Andrew Cooper and Brett Ellis to brew beers with a bit of a difference. Their goal is to focus on different ingredients, different yeasts and different barrel aging techniques. Which will be discussed throughout the tasting class.
Their Evolver IPA that was featured in Draft Magazine as a one of the TOP 25 beers of2014.
Wild Beer Co's beer is not brewed to style but are inspired by ingredients, occasions or experiences. Wild Beer's backgrounds are around food and flavor, and inspiration is often taken from something we eat or drink or from our surroundings in the beautiful Somerset countryside.
Brett has worked with food and drink all of his working life, mostly as a chef, before he served his brewing apprenticeship at a local brewery. He has a love of sour beers, big flavors and the subtleties and complexities of barrel-aged beer that led to the idea of the Wild Beer Co.
With their desire in mind to make beer that forces you to think differently this tasting class we'll explore the different ingredients, yeasts and barrel aging techniques that a at times crazy risks in this industry.
There will be light snacks offered to help keep your palette fresh. We do however recommend eating a meal before class.
