Wild Feijoa 2014

Later this month, in conjunction with the Brewers Guild Awards, we will release one of my favourite yearly seasonals, Wild Feijoa. This is the 2014 vintage, which actually means that the beer was brewed and put in barrels in 2013, while the feijoas were added in 2014. As such, the vintage indicates the harvest of the fruit, rather than the brewing of the beer. 

 

What's happening in the barrels....

Our sour beer programme continues to develop well. After 4 years of brewing sour beers and 2 years of stock piling hundreds of barrels of these, many, if not most of the barrels are getting close to maturation and it is simply a matter for Jason and I to taste our way through the repertoire and decide what to blend and bottle. Last years vintage of Wild Feijoa has been bottled and is merely awaiting labels (and enough bottle conditioning) to be released. After that we plan to do a bottle run of Sour side of the Moon, a beer that can best be described as a Flanders Black Ale.
