This one is for those who are fascinated by science, love the magic of time in barrel, or want to learn more about the art of wild ales. It’s a longer episode, but I think you will like it!
For this episode, I invited Troy Casey from Casey Brewing and Blending in Glenwood Springs Colorado to tell us about the art of brewing and blending Wild Ales. Troy and his wife, Emma, established Casey in 2013 with a desire to brew beers with amazing local ingredients, fermented in oak barrels.
Troy has a great story to share about beer nerds in sleeping bags waiting for his release at the tap room, the great advice Charlie Bamforth gave him, and how the Cantillon rep back in the day had to plead with him to buy a bottle!
For those interested in brewing Wild Ales, I borrowed upon the expertise of Will Tatchell to help me with asking some more technical questions that will hopefully quench your thirst for wild ale knowledge.
But, he’s not the only one imparting knowledge in this episode though, I repay the favour by teaching him about “taking the piss”!
One of my most favourite episodes, Troy is a great guy who is only too happy to share his insights.
