Aged In Barrels
Barrel-ageing and blending beer is at the heart of what we do at Wild Beer. Barrel ageing beer means we wait patiently for the beers in our library of over 600 barrels to take on the nuances of the previous inhabitants of the wood, where time can reveal complex layers and flavours that deserve to be savoured with friends or food - preferably both!
We see wood and barrel-ageing as the medium that turns an ordinary beer into an outstanding taste-experience.'
We use a plethora of old barrels including wine, whisky, sherry, rum, port, tequila and brandy
Driven By Authenticity
Authenticity is key for us. We pride ourselves on producing beer in the UK using time-honoured traditions, hence our focus on using wooden barrels and foudres. It is also about using local produce, foraged ingredients and harnessing Mother Nature to inoculate our beer in our unique, Somerset terroir.
These techniques allow for genuine, rather than forced, flavour. We are transparent in our methods and our research and in detailing our successes and failures. These values are true to our hearts and hopefully, resonate with people who are on a similar mission of taste discovery.
We aim to inspire and excite our audience, often approaching brewing in a 'slow' way.
Inspired By Ingredients
The wild nature of our beers is seen in the use of alternative fermentations, unorthodox yeasts, seasonally-foraged ingredients and the use of esoteric and exotic produce from far and wide.
Set against the backdrop of the Somerset countryside, we are a true farmhouse brewery sharing our space with Westcombe Dairy, whose cheeses pair naturally well with our beers...
"We believe exceptional brewing stems from imagination, passion, time and teamwork"
In Pursuit Of Flavour
Unconstrained by stylistic guidelines and led by flavour, we celebrate traditional techniques whilst embracing a sense of modernity in our brewing. We want to give you a truly memorable drinking experience, altering your perceptions of beer and thrilling your taste buds.
Whether it's hoppy freshness, stout sweetness or sour and refined barrel-aged flavours that you're after, rest assured you'll find them here.
Our passion for flavour sees us seeking out the perfect balance between taste and aroma, which is why our beers naturally pair so well with food
