Curious as to what Real, Wild and Woody has to do with a beer festival? Here’s the scoop:
What is a Real beer?
All natural! Real ale is served right from the cask it’s created in because of a process called secondary fermentation. This is the golden ticket to making real ale, real. The aromas and tastes are some that processed beers can’t replicate.
What’s so Wild about a Wild Brew?
A wild beer can mean a lot of different things, but mainly, a “wild beer” is used to label beer that has Brettanomyces, or Brett, qualities. Brett is a yeast strain that makes a brew taste earthy. Some believe a wild brew has to be impulsively fermented, not created in a lab.
What is Woody beer?
As you might have guessed a woody beer is a wood or barrel aged brew. You’re not going to taste an entire redwood forest in these brews, though. The subtle taste and aromas of the different barrels like tequila or bourbon are just woody enough to get your taste buds tingling.
