Some of the Jester King stuff is good, most of it is too sour for me. The wild yeast bit is nice every now and then in small doses.

IAmRight: Why would that matter whatsoever?


Yah, I don't understand either. Does fermenting in a cave do something to the flavour profile? It (should) be a sealed vessel with an airlock when fermenting, so nothing bad gets in....are they adhering to the principles of brewing or not?

This sounds like a way to drum up sales. Ad!

I guess it's a tradition thing, more than a way to do with anything with fermenting beer (in the modern age):

We even have some in my area, which were sealed by the Iowa DOT recently, I guess:

They are partnering with Jester King. The brewers at JK just open the wort up to the air in the field behind the brewhouse and let whatever yeast is there take hold. Stuff is almost always sour and sometimes they have really bad batches that they can't sell. This partnership is doing something similar with taking yeast from the cave system. Visiting JK is pretty cool even if it boggles the mind how they don't follow the modern protocols.
