Wide Street Brewing Spéciale

  • ABV: 4.7%
  • Style: Belgian Pale Ale
  • Brewery: Wide Street Brewing
  • Origin: Ballymahon, Longford

Wide Street Brewing Company specializes in mixed fermentation methods and 100% Brettanomyces beers. Their vision is to brew innovative beers with alternative fermentation methods. Their house yeast is a custom blend of Brettanomyces, saccharomyces, and lactobacillus strains from Bootleg Biology, a yeast laboratory based in Nashville, USA. This gives their beer a distinctive dry mouthfeel and enhanced fruity flavours. They 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. They also love experimenting with new hops and brewing styles and have recently released Farmhouse Pilsner and a Cashmere IPA with no Brettanomyces in them!

I would say that Wide Street Brewing is one of those breweries that may not be as well known (yet), but they are a true beer lover’s type of brewery! SO ensure that you pick more up!
