5.8% Bling IPA fermented with wild wine yeast sourced from Sorrenberg and aged 12 months in barrels containing Brettanomyces. Bridge Road Brewers enjoys a great relationship with many groups in the Beechworth community, and the local vignerons are one of our favourites. The three Bling de Wilde beers have been fermented using wild/spontaneous yeast cultures from local Chardonnay producers, A.Rodda, Giaconda and Sorrenberg.
These yeasts were harvested from each winery during the 2017 vintage and pitched into oak barrels with un-fermented wort from our Bling IPA. Each beer was then fermented and aged for a year on yeast lees before being transferred to tank and dry hopped using the Bling IPA dry hop regime.
Please enjoy these side by side to find the differences that each yeast combination and barrel brings.
