Wild Beer and Doctor’s Orders Tap Takeover + Meet the Brewers
Fri 12th May 6-8pm,
Front Bar free entry
By name by nature, Wild Beer Co’s Andrew Cooper cranks out a host of twisted brews from his Somerset based Farmhouse Brewery. Born out of a love of fermentation, barrel-ageing and blending, Wild Beer Co is at the forefront of barrel aged and sour beers in the UK.
“We believe exceptional brewing stems from imagination and passion. The Wild nature of our beer is displayed in the alternative fermentations and unorthodox yeasts we use alongside our barrel-ageing and blending program. We are a truly farmhouse brewery sharing our space with Westcombe Dairy, whose cheese pairs incredibly with our beer... We think of our beers as having unique terroir; our house wild yeast was captured in a neighbouring Cider orchard and we often forage seasonal wild ingredients.”
Doc is the only Brewer to have attended every Good Beer Wheaty and is well versed in weird. He damn near specialises in the art of utilising seemingly outrageous ingredients and/or techniques to produce beers as balanced and moreish as they are intriguing and bent. From squid ink and cinchona bark to rhubarb and probiotics, there’s not much Doc hasn’t done - or won’t do.
We’ll be pouring: Wild Beer Sourdough, Wild Goose Chase, Smoke n Barrels, POGO, Fresh, Evolver IPA, Epic Saison and Bibble and Drs Order Electrolyte (two ways).
Join Andrew and Doc in the Front Bar for a post-brewday Fancy and chat about Barrel Libraries, Foudre Forests, mixed fermentations, wild yeast, squid ink, quinine, cuckoo brewing, destiny and anything else that floats your boat.
