WILD CARD X LAZY OAF
PALE ALE (4.2% ABV)
About the beer
Wild Card Brewery are excited to have partnered with the eye-rolling, creative-led lifestyle and apparel brand, Lazy Oaf. The Snifter Pale Ale is a hazy, juicy pale ale, crammed with four different hops for maximum shades of flavour. Mashed in hot with oats - Cryo-Citra is added in the whirlpool at the end of boil, then fermented with a specially selected yeast for a high gravity, sweet finish. Dry hopped with Cashmere, Mosaic, Cryo-Loral & Cryo-Cascade hops.
About the Brewery
Wild Card Brewery was founded in 2012 at the Ravenswood Industrial Estate Walthamstow. They brewed Mon-Fri and come the weekend, they would open the brewery doors and serve up their delicious beers. With support from the local community their shed became one of Walthamstow's best loved bars, hosting beer festivals, tap takeovers and live music.
Meanwhile, in the brewery, Head Brewer Jaega was working away, tweaking old recipes and coming up with new ones. By 2017 she had 2 award winning beers under her belt and was struggling to make enough beer to keep up with demand - they were going to need a bigger brewery. So, in 2017, they started a crowdfunding campaign to help move the brewery to a bigger site. In 2018 the brewery moved over to Lockwood Way, where they have doubled capacity - which means lots of Wild Card beer for us all.
