POWELL RIVER, BC – Townsite Brewing has announced the release of the second in its occasional series of barrel fermented wild ales.
Known as Bois Sauvage – French for “Wild Wood” – the series features beers fermented and aged in the Townsite barrel room, which is home to wild yeasts such as Saccharomyces, Lactobacillus, Pediococcus and Brettanomyces.
Following on last December’s Bois Sauvage: Wild Ale #1, the next in the series is Bois Sauvage: Assemblage #1, which is described as follows:
Our team’s barrel aging efforts have turned towards blending. The solera process, as it is known, allows for a mixture of vintages to come together in one beautiful mélange. For this, our first blend, several barrels were chosen for their tartness and fruity qualities and the result is a mineral, dry, effervescent wild ale.
Bois Sauvage: Assemblage #1 is available now at the Townsite retail store, and soon at select private liquor stores in British Columbia.
