Number 24 in Avery Brewing’s Barrel Aged Series is Spontanea, an American wild ale.
Spontanea is brewed with Cabernet Sauvignon grape must and aged in Cabernet Savignon wine barrels. An interesting fact about Spontanea, is that no extra yeast was added to the beer. The yeast and bacteria naturally occurring on the grape must did all fermentation.
We gave our yeast a vacation, The critters on the skins of the grapes did all the work on this beauty! Completely spontaneous fermentation!
Avery Spontanea was bottled in October in 12oz bottles.
