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.

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.

Peaches n’ Dream Bottle Release – 12/8/17

Peaches n’ Dream Bottle Release – 12/8/17

We are very excited to announce the release a brand new beer that pulls together Western Pennsylvania’s natural surroundings and local agriculture.

Peaches n’ Dream (4.6%abv) is an indigenous wild ale made with over 1,000lbs of fresh local peaches that we sourced from our friends at Soergel Orchards and Shenot Farm. The grain used, was 100% Pennsylvania grown malt and laboriously floor dried (the old school way) by our good friends at Appalachian Malting. Lastly, as usual, all of the yeast strains are indigenous to Western Pennsylvania.

Peaches n’ Dream is hazy straw in color, with lush aromas of over ripe peach and mild bread, with undertones of cotton candy and white grapes. The initial flavor begins with a creamy peach flesh, followed by tones of earth and very mild warm spice, reminiscent of graham cracker. The finish is dry, peachy and slightly sour.

Peaches n’ Dream is packaged in 750ml bottles and will be available for sale at the taproom in Millvale starting on Friday at 5pm. Bottles are $13.75 each and there is a 6 bottle limit per person per day. We recommend drinking this beer fresh as the peach notes will subside over time. We really hope you enjoy this beer. Cheers!
