New York Brewery Tour # 2 – Wild East Brewing

Our second NY stop is pretty wild. Wild East Brewing are producing Belgians, IPA’s as well as going more complex with some barrels and aging and using local ingredients and Brooklyn microbes too. The brewery was founded by Brett Taylor, Tyler March and Lindsay Steen.

Here are the initial beers that I would add to my tasting tray…

Wild East IPA – “Our signature IPA, fermented with a farmhouse blend of yeasts and loaded with Mosaic, Amarillo & Citra hops. Luscious tropical fruit and citrus flavors with a slight hint of tartness. Subtly earthy, lightly funky, wildly juicy and complex from start to finish.”

Urban Farmhouse Pale – “A balanced, sessionable and clean American pale ale. Heavy doses of oats and wheat for a smooth, creamy mouthfeel. Heavy doses of American and NY state hops for a unique medley of bright, floral and citrusy flavors.”

Debaser – “Our award-winning hazy, unfiltered double IPA. Dank pine, tangy citrus with notes of stone fruits and melon. High on juicy hop flavor with soft bitterness and plenty of IBUs to temporarily degrade your tastebuds.”

Boring Planet – “Our unfiltered take on a traditional European pilsner, brewed to almost-classic style. Super clean fermentation, grainy-sweet malt backbone and assertive notes of spicy, herbal hops. Crisp, balanced and unrelentingly crushable.”

Shadyside – “A sessionable farmhouse black ale made with locally-sourced New York state malt and hops. Crisp, light-bodied and decidingly dry. Mellow roasty notes of coffee and chocolate set the stage fir bold citrusy hops and the unique yeast character steals the show.”

Brooklambic – “A truly locally-inspired sour ale, brewed with pilsner malt, aged hops and spontaneously fermented with native Brooklyn microbes and aged in wine barrels for 12-18 months.”
