(512)’s first excursion into the world of so-called wild fermentation, Wild Bear’s origins lie in our Fall seasonal, BRUIN. After primary fermentation, we added Brettanomyces yeast and Pediococcus bacteria cultures, and aged the blend in new oak barrels for over 10 months. This combination of wild “bugs” and barrel aging gives (512) Wild Bear a complex and enticing aroma of tart cherries, oak, and a touch of barnyard “funkiness”, a crisp, tart flavor that will intensify with age, and an effervescent, oaky finish that leaves the palate clean. More recent versions age in Foeders.
About (512) Brewing:
The original practice of consuming fresh draft beer at local bars and restaurants, enjoying the sensation of the glass and the pour, the exchange with the publican and the surrounding atmosphere has been nearly lost. Throw in very fresh beer made in small handcrafted batches from nearby and you have a truly unique experience. (512) beers are built on old world English and Belgian styles, enhanced to celebrate bold domestic ingredients. Made with Austin’s mineral rich water, (512) beers taste like none other.
