Our Story Our Beer Taproom Contact

Our beers combine elements of Belgian and French brewing tradition with local micro flora to create unique, complex beers that can only be described one way, wild by design.

Inspiration

We strive to create unique, complex beers by infusing traditional brewing elements with our own artistic vision. Old world styles are reimagined with new techniques and unexpected ingredients to craft style-blending beers that are all their own.

Fermentation

In the tradition of Belgian and French brewers, we utilize spontaneous fermentation whenever possible and integrate local micro flora into our brews. The constantly evolving environment ensures unique results that you won't find anywhere else.

Maturation

We encourage our micro flora to interact and age to perfection through extended cask or bottle maturation periods. This allows each beer to develop in richness and complexity, while giving us an opportunity to create beers that are both wild and fully integrated.

Bottle Release: Black Briar + Pommegranade

Bottle Release: Black Briar + Pommegranade

Double header bottle release coming on 11/2/17 at our taproom in Millvale.

Black Briar (8.0%abv) – American Wild Ale Fermented With Blackberry Juice

This American wild ale integrates undertones of notable Old World ales with the essence of a mature cask aged ale. Traditionally wild flavors (think earthy, funky, musty) are combined with a natural tartness and refreshing fruit flavor from the blackberry juice during the French Oak cask aging.

Pommegranade  (9.4%abv) РAmerican Wild Ale Fermented With Pomegranate Juice.

The bitter sweet taste of pomegranate juice blends perfectly with this American wild ale and the complex notes developed in the extended cask maturation over 18 months.

Both of these bottles will be release at 5pm on Thursday (11/2/17) at our taproom in Millvale. Bottles will be priced at $9 each and there is a 6 bottle limit of each per person per day. We will also be offering a 50/50 mixed case (6 bottles of each) for $99.
