Wild Ride – Pilsner evolved

Wild Ride is an evolution of our pilsner, Riverton Flyer.  Starting in 2017, we filled a stainless tank with this delightful lager and added some carefully selected strains of Brettanomyces. Sitting back, and letting the slow secondary aging process take shape, the beer fermented even more, going in at 5.5% ABV, and reaching 6.7%. A true ongoing evolution, we decide to employ a modified solera-approach to make this beer, pulling a few barrels off the tank from time to time, only to refill it with fresh beer, continuing the process. Each beer produced by this process is a blend of all these additions aged together, creating a final product with both the rich notes of lemon, hay, and pear from long standing brett fermentation melded with the slightly spice and grassy notes of younger beer.
