Wet n' Wyld

Uinta's Wyld Extra Pale Ale has been one of my favorite beers since it came out in June 2007. It was bright, refreshing and full of Simcoe and Amarillo hops. What's not to love?

Two weeks ago the guys at Uinta decided to try something new, take one batch of Wyld Extra Pale and do a special, one of a kind edition.

For this special edition Uinta acquired a shload of fresh Simcoe hops, enough to average 4lbs of  hops per barrel of beer ( 1 beer barrel = 31 gallons).  The result, we hope is one citrusy, resinous and sessionable sombitch!


The "wet" in Wet n' Wyld refers to the state of the hops. Most hops are dried to eliminate weight and spoilage, these are fresh off the vine, wet as nature made them.

Wet n' Wyld is draft only (no bottles) and will be available at the breweries pub and those pubs and bars that tend to give a shit about good local beer.

Wet n' Wyld will be tapped today (Sept, 25). Call before you make the trip.

Cheers!

Cool! I can't wait to try it. Drinking a few Dubhes last night and I was thinking how cool it would be to have a Wood Aged version of it! Please! Cedar, Oak, hell even a Whiskey version would rock.

The Wet hopped Wyld has a very bright Simcoe aroma. Great beer.

Honestly, not much different than the regular.
