Intermodal is our 100% spontaneously inoculated wild beer, created in a style inspired by traditional lambic producers. During a window of specific overnight temps in the fall each year, we take traditional turbid wort, let it slumber overnight in the open-air coolship, and allow the finest wild yeast and microorganisms to join in.

The 2023 batch was divided into two — a classic version and a cherrified version. Both are light, tart, funky, extra bubbly, and excellent evidence that good things come to those who wait (3 years).
