The Cellar Circus is an ongoing exploration of the infinite number of permutations possible as a result of purposeful, experimental barrel-fermentation and blending.
We hope you’ll enjoy peaking behind the curtain to learn about the juggling act of brewing with wild yeast and the many permutations of blending as much as our team has.
