If this is your first time listening to the show, this is a mini-episode, where we drink one beer and talk about a single subject. The previous episode and the next episode are full episodes, where we also talk about homebrewing and running in addition to reviewing a regular release and an amazing, usually rare beer.

Episode Focus: American Wild Ale

Today's beer is Allagash Avance: A strawberry American Wild Ale aged in bourbon barrels. Thanks, Josiah and Hop City!

American Wild Ale is a catch-all category for American beers that use some amount of wild yeast strain. "Wild" does not necessarily mean that the beers are spontaneously fermented; but they are influenced by microbes outside of just brewer's yeast.

Other American Wild Ales that have been reviewed on Brew / Drink / Run include:

Boulevard Love Child No. 4 Southbound Roxanne Wicked Weed Permeo Westbrook Leopold Avery Raspberry Sour
