Wooden Barrels + Living Beer = Wooden Soul
Sour. Funky. Wild. Barrel-aged. Wooden Soul encompasses a stunning array of unique styles of beer, produced by the dynamic relationships between natural microorganisms when left to their own devices.
The beer destined for our barrels usually starts out like any other beer, undergoing primary fermentation, passing through our centrifuge, and into a bright tank. Instead of being cooled and carbonated, the beer for Wooden Soul is racked into barrels, and inoculated with wild yeast and bacteria. These unpredictable microorganisms take a completely ‘clean’ beer, break it down, and build it back up again, creating something entirely new and incredibly complex.
There is a certain degree of wonder and mysticism in our barrel room. The whole world could be explained scientifically, but sometimes it’s more enjoyable just to marvel at the unknown.
The simple truth is, we don’t know exactly how the beers of Wooden Soul will taste, or when they will be ready for consumption; that’s part of the journey.
Wooden Soul beers are developed using various strains of Brettanomyces, bacteria, or both, and almost all of the beers will spend some time aging in wood. There will be a spectrum of flavor and aroma produced from our wild yeast and bacteria. Some may be incredibly sour, while others may be more funky.
When a beer is deemed ready to be released in the Wooden Soul series, we will share the details of that particular style, its history, and its unique tasting notes.

Birds of a feather Flock Together, and now they make beer together, too. Hatched in the spirit of camaraderie that lies at the heart of craft brewing, our collaboration series takes flight. We're teaming up with like-minded folks both near and away to wing it with unique ingredients and uncommon styles. When we Flock Together, good things are always on the horizon.
After AB-Inbev’s acquisition of Northern Brewer in 2016, Indeed made the tough decision to pull its beer kits from the store, and decided to post our recipes for Day Tripper and Midnight Ryder right here on our website. We continue to encourage home brewers to support their local home brewing store in an effort to keep craft brewing honest, accessible and fun. Questions? Feel free to e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org.
