ThirstyBear Organic Brewery Releases Barrel-Aged Stave Series No. 16: The Wild American

ThirstyBear Organic Brewery Releases New Barrel Aged Brew: STAVE SERIES NO. 16: THE WILD AMERICAN

San Francisco, CA — ThirstyBear Organic Brewery puts a uniquely American spin on the ancient Belgian brewing practice of wild fermentation with the much-anticipated release of Stave Series No. 16: The Wild American. For its annual limited-edition Stave Series, ThirstyBear barrel aged The Wild American in American oak, inoculated the brew with Brettanomyces and dry-hopped it with the American hop varietal Mosaic. ThirstyBear’s Stave Series releases are a highly coveted annual favorite for Bay Area craft beer fans.

Stave Series No. 16: The Wild American is a golden ale aged for nine months with “bruxellensis trois” for a wild yeast-like fermentation. The result is a smooth ale boasting mouth-puckering tartness with mango and pineapple notes. The aromas are complemented by dry-hopping in the barrels with Mosaic hops.
