Indeed, Jeffers Richardsondirector of Firestone Walkers Barrelworks wild beer facilityis taking his trailblazing educational show on the road this fall under the banner of Jeffers Drops AcidKnowledge, inviting you to explore how acidity shapes your sensory perception of wild beers.
When it comes to wild or sour beers, acidity plays more of a role in the taste experience compared to traditional beers, which are more defined by their hop and malt profiles, Richardson said. This seminar is designed to explore the role of acidity, and to reveal not only what you are tasting in the beer, but also why.
Perception vs. Reality
The seminar delves into the differences between pH and titratable acidity as well as the sensory relationship between smell and taste. Different concentrations of acetic and lactic acids are tasted, enabling you to discover the signature characteristics of each. Along the way, you learn how each of these acids shapes flavor, mouthfeel and overall perception.
And the whole things then ends on a sour note with a special tasting of limited releases from Barrelworks to test your newfound knowledge and reinforce the lesson.
The Jeffers Drops AcidKnowledge seminar series originated at the brewery earlier this year and was met with enthusiasm, prompting Richardson to take it on the road.
The response has been phenomenal, Richardson said. Many people are new to wild beers, and this is a really fun way to take a crash course.
And more Firestone Walker beers will be available by the glass at the front bar... Firestone Porabola, PGH Weizenbock, Stikee Monkey, Helldrado, SLOambic (subject to change. seriously, it might change!).
