COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This beer is a continuation of our quest to produce distinct beers using local indigenous ingredients. Wild Sierra emulates spring in the Sierra with the snow melting out of the forests and giving way to fruity/spicy aromas of the trees with a touch of earthiness from wet soil. Mountain farmhouse style is very alive with active cultures of wild yeast continuously changing the flavor profile. We use Belgian ale yeast, Saison yeast, and wild yeast harvested off of local Pion Pine needles in the brewing process. Our wild yeast also contains Lactobacillus which lends a refreshing tartness to the beer.
