Beervana Podcast, Episode 32: Wild Ales Beyond Lambic
In the latest Beervana podcast, Jeff Alworth and Patrick Emerson follow up their deep dive of lambics to explore the world of wild ales beyond Belgium. They pay special attention to the various ways wild ales are made outside of the constraints of lambic.
The two discuss the difference between bacteria and yeast, aerobic and anaerobic fermentation, and kettle-souring and beers made with wild yeast.
This discussion is supplemented with clips from:
- Jason Kahler of Solera Brewery in Parkdale, Oregon
- Valter Loverier of LoverBeer in Marentino, Italy
- Peter Bouckaert of New Belgium Brewing
- Vasili Gletsos of Hill Farmstead
Alworth and Emerson also taste The Purple from de Garde Brewing and Bière De Mars from Jolly Pumpkin Artisan Ales.
