WILD CARD BREWERY
IPA (5.2% ABV)
About the beer
Wild Card have brewed a lovely IPA to honour the winter solstice. With a pale, oat & wheat base, it's been hopped with US Warrior on the hot-side & fermented with the crisp US05 yeast. Dry hopped with tropical-fruit-forward Cryo-Mosaic & paired with the pillowy Cryo-Cascade.
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.
