EMBRACE THE FUNK:
Sour and Wild Ales
In the summer of 2012 Yazoo began a series of sour and wild beers with local brewer/writer Brandon Jones called the Embrace The Funk series. Titled with Brandon’s popular sour beer website, this line of Yazoo beers explores the many wonderful beers that can be produced with wild yeasts, souring microbes and different wooden casks.
In December 2012 our Brewmaster Linus and “Wrangler of Funk” Brandon released the first beer in the series named “Wild Child”. Since then the “Embrace The Funk” series has been a staple in the Yazoo Taproom with special rotating offerings. Our ETF beers have been served at SAVOR in New York, “What The Funk” in Denver and on January 26th, 2014 the first bottles of ETF “Deux Rouges” were released (and sold out in 2 hours). Linus and Brandon are constantly creating new beers and different barrel variations for the Embrace The Funk series. The beers are mostly taproom exclusives so your best bet to enjoy their creations is to stop by soon!
Drawing inspiration from the French “Biere de Garde” style, this copper-colored wild ale is brewed with the twist of using new-world Citra & Galaxy hops. Wild Brettanomyces yeast and souring bacteria compliment the juicy hops, creating a tart peach and lemon citrus character.

Barrel-Aged Brett Saison 2014 (12oz)
The extended aging in these heavy toasted barrels added a nice layer of tartness (due to the natural acidity of the wine) along with characters of Pear, Grapeskin, Honeydew Melon and nuances of Granny Smith apples. If you’ve had a nice Sauv Blanc wine, you’ll find these familiar characters.
Expect a prominent oak presence with the heavy toast of the barrels. Even though it is ready to enjoy now, this beer will age and evolve in the bottle.
