(512) Brewing Company: Funky Kingston
Funky Kingston began as a Copper Ale made from Organic 2-Row, Pilsner and CaraMunich malted barley and Organic wheat. Its primary fermentation began in late 2012 in stainless with a mixed yeast culture of two strains of Saccharomyces cerevisiaes (brewer’s ale yeast). Soon after, it was racked to 17 American Oak Cabernet Barrels where Brettanomyces bruxellensis yeast and Pediococcus bacteria were added. The Brett slowly created a funky and earthy flavor and aroma and more recently, lactic acid from the bacteria showed up, adding smooth background sour notes. Funky Kingston is indeed a special blend of malt, funk, sour and oak. We hope you enjoy it.
