TORONTO, ON – Bellwoods Brewery has announced the release of a special fruited edition of Intermodal, a “100% spontaneously inoculated wild beer, created in a style inspired by traditional lambic producers.”
Intermodal Peach (6.6% abv):
In the same year that we turned ten, our wild beer program is turning five! Which means that this year, for the first time, we have enough spontaneous beer on hand to pursue new endeavours — namely putting three barrels of 2-year-old spon on an equal amount of fresh Ontario-grown freestone peaches.
Unsurprisingly, the resulting beer harnesses the power of all those perfectly ripe peaches, with fuzzy peach skin aroma and fresh peach flesh flavour. Balanced medium acidity and some subtle brett esters are complimented by aged hop characteristics. In short, long-term labour-intensive projects (and peaches) rule.

Intermodal Peach is available now at the Bellwoods retail stores and online shop.
The release is also being celebrated at the Bellwoods Brewpub on Ossington until November 13th, where it is joined on tap by spontaneously fermented beers from Brasserie Cantillon, de Garde Brewing, and Gueuzerie Tilquin.
