As many of you may know, the Beechworth wine region is home to some of the most revered examples of Chardonnay in our great brown land.
Each year we make an ultra limited set of ‘De Wilde’ beers, which are barrel fermented on wild yeast from 3 iconic local wine producers – Giaconda, Sorrenberg and A.Rodda – This year’s incarnation, ‘Beechy de Wilde’ is a dazzler!
The yeast from each winemaker is sourced from an active chardonnay ferment and inoculated into 3 separate barrels of our beer. this year’s version, Beechy De Wilde, was aged in barrels for 12 months, and has resulted three beers of fantastic texture and complexity.
Available as a 4 pack, with our Beech de Wilde – Designed to be enjoyed as set, these 3 beers are to be shared and compared, so as to see the effect of each of the yeasts on the base beer, our Beechy XPA nee Summer Ale.
