Chronos

Lagered in Foudre + Brettanomyces

Fitting for it’s namesake, this beer was lagered over a month in foudre producing a clean, delicate and rounded lager. As complex as it is refined - the embodiment of how time and gentle ageing can benefit flavour.

Unique Aspect

At Wild Beer we frequently harness the delicious powers of brettanomyces and Chronos is no exception. Taking a more traditional approach to lagering we decided to embrace the elements and allow the frigid temperatures of the Somerset winter to keep the beer cool. We pitched brettanomyes in foudre; large wooden vessels which allow the brettanomyces to blossom and adds some tannic quality to the beer while leaving it exposed to ambient temperatures. Allowing the forces of nature and power of time to transform this beer into something beautiful. 

 

Food Pairings

The tannic finish and herbal flavour pair perfectly with chicken and mushroom especially in a tart or flan. The sweet malt adds boldness to the flavour whilst the crisp nature of the lager leaves a refreshing after taste. This in turn would also pair beautifully with seared or barbecued chicken.
