Breakfast Of Champignons
We love all things wild and foraged at the Wild Beer Co and we are surrounded by a smorgasbord of various mushrooms in the Somerset countryside.Fungi are at the heart of our brewery. Yeasts are micro fungi that do the hard work in making beer, we just feed them and put a roof over their microscopic heads. But it’s the amazing flavours and untameable nature of wild yeast strains that really excites us and when it came to pairing macro (mushrooms) with micro (yeasts) in a beer, it had to be The Penny Bun (aka, Porcini, or Ceps). Not just for the amazing nutty, earthy flavour, but because they are also untameable (mankind has so far been unable to cultivate them).

Beer and Bread have been showing off the magic of yeast for thousands of years, we decided to combine the two. The old and the new, contemporary ideas and historical techniques and ingredients, a very special beer that combines all these things and more.

We have been preserving lemons in salt and lemon juice throughout the winter, ready to brew this refreshing, zesty summer special. Gose, is a traditional German-style sour wheat beer, usually brewed with coriander and salt. Once nearly extinct, this very refreshing style is making a comeback and we thought it would provide the perfect backbone to this wonderfully complex summer beer.
