Wide Street Brewing Company specialises in mixed fermentation methods and 100% Brettanomyces beers. Our vision is to brew innovative beers with alternative fermentation methods. Our house yeast is a custom blend of Brettanomyces, saccharomyces and lactobacillus strains from Bootleg Biology, a yeast laboratory based in Nashville, USA. This gives our beer a distinctive dry mouthfeel and enhanced fruity flavours. We have released many unique styles of beers since we started in May 2019 such as saisons, grisettes and table beers as well as mixed fermentation aged sour beers. We also love experimenting with new hops and brewing styles and have recently released Farmhouse Pilsner and a Cashmere IPA with no Brettanomyces in them
Our interest in brewing started as home-brewers intrigued by the lesser-explored Brettanomyces yeast and yet to be explored wild yeast.
We use traditional brewing processes with open top-fermenters. Our beers are unfiltered, unpasteurised and can-conditioned which means that beers are refermented in the can with a champagne yeast strain. Most of our beers are very dry and fully fermented with a final gravity below 1.003.
