Wild African Soul v2: Sorghum Farmhouse Beer


340ml bottle. 6.5% abv and 35 ibus.

Wild African Soul is a collab with Brewsters Craft and the second of our of bottle conditioned, wild fermented beers. Think of this as a modern rendition of traditional sorghum beer, blending European barrel aging techniques with African methods of sour mashing and natural fermentation. It is unlike any beer we’ve ever tasted. Flavors of creamy pear and big jammy fruit, citrus and honey melt into a funky, dry barrel character, balanced by acidity and earthy sorghum grain notes. Limited release and only available in bottle.

This beer is the culmination of multiple, complex brewing processes and blending. We brewed a batch of Umqombothi, conducting a traditional sour mash and open, spontaneous fermentation on the grain. It was then strained and blended into a barrel with a spontaneous, open fermented European farmhouse ale for secondary fermentation. It then underwent a final fermentation with brettanomyces and blended with a three year old, fruity brett beer.
