Beer is typically fermented in a very calculated, controlled manner with pure strains of brewers’ yeast. Our Kriek beer is instead fermented by exposing it to the untamed yeasts and bacteria that are native to our Brewery. We affectionately call this unrestrained, wild amalgamation our House Funk. This blend is unique to Rivertown and this unusual, spontaneous process, involving over a year of fermentation in oak wine barrels and addition of tart cherries, is what gives this beer its’ distinctive flavor; sweet, acidic, funky and vinous with a tangy, lingering aftertaste.
