Reformation Brewery Revives Wilder Tart Fruited Ale

Wilder_TapMockReformation Brewery (Atlanta, Georgia) has officially announced that the Limited Release of Wilder, a “sweet, purple and tart” Fruited Ale, will begin on March 29.

Crafted to embody the “sweet beast in every beer lover”, Wilder (7% ABV) is a “heavily fruited ale . . . dripping with wild amounts of cranberry, blackberry, blackcurrant and ginger.”  Thanks to “ongoing research and development” at Reformation’s recently-opened Woodstock location, Tyler Bohn, a cellarman at the brewery, is “credited with bringing [Wilder’s] recipe back from the archives.”

“Wilder was a happy accident when we made it years ago, and remained one of our customer’s most requested products,” said CEO and co-founder, Spencer Nix. “This beer is one of those legends around the brewhouse, and we now have the tools and talent to live up to it. Tyler was able to dial this one in with a few small test batches. We’re proud to have such a dedicated, passionate team of brewers behind the beer we bring to our community.”

Wilder is set to debut in Reformation’s Woodstock taproom on March 29 and distribution is scheduled to follow shortly after the on-site release.  You can expect to find this Limited Release available in 4-packs of 16 oz. cans and on draft at select craft beer establishments located within Reformation’s distribution footprint in Georgia and Tennessee.  Prost!
