Native Fermented Wild Ale Aged in a Foedre For years, we’ve made beer in big shiny things. Then we got these big wooden things called foedres. So we put beer in them. Then we waited. And waited. And then John checked in on them. And then we waited some more. We can now say with full confidence that the wait was worth it. Wildings, the first beer from the Mousetrap foedre program releases on Saturday, July 21st. Wildings features native yeasts harvested from blueberry skins which yield an aromatic cloudburst of summer blueberries, concord grapes and strawberry blossoms interlaced with supple oak and a delicate note of violets from the long rest in handmade foedres we pulled out of a winery in the northern Italy region of Piedmont where they held Barolo for 15 years.
