What’s the deal with Wild Ales?

Wild ales are fermented with wild (or natural) yeast and bacteria rather than brewer’s yeasts, meaning no hops or cereal adjuncts are used in the process. They’re characterised by their weird and funky flavours: think sour meets earthy. Wild ales go through a secondary fermentation where wild yeast is added to achieve their distinct funkiness which can be quite tart at times depending on how much Lacto (lactic acid) is produced.

Wildflower

Wildflower is a brewery based in New South Wales, fermenting wild ales with wild yeast and bacteria. They’ve got a funky house culture of brewers yeast mixed wild yeast and flavoursome native Australian ingredients to create unique beers that stand out among the crowd.
