Elsewhere Brewing brewmaster Josh Watterson has been making some serious wild ales at Printer’s Ale Manufacturing Co. in Carrollton. On Nov. 30th he’ll be debuting a bunch of them at Brick Store Pub in Decatur. And with that happy occasion in mind, Woodcut Wild Ales Kriek is this week’s beer pick.
Printer’s Ale Manufacturing Co., Carrollton, Georgia
Available at the brewery and in limited distribution soon
Spontaneously fermented in a coolship, Wild Ales Kriek is exposed to Carrollton’s terroir before being transferred into wine barrels and aged on cherries for more than a year. The result is a fizzy, bright red beer with a foamy pink head. The cherry aroma gives way to a balanced sweet-tart flavor into the finish.
For dinner, serve it with duck or pork. For dessert, pair it with dark chocolate.
