Hello, My Name Is Brett

We're looking for Brett, have you seen him? Looks like you have! We found him in one of the most complex and nuanced styles of beer. American Wild Ale and Brett Beer are very popular nowadays, so Brett can't hide any longer!

More than the name of your pet rock, Brett actually stands for Brettanomyces, a type of yeast that can be used to ferment beer. What sets these beers apart is that distinctive Brett strain. Like your crazy aunt, known for being just a little kooky and wild, Brett adds a bit of funk to its beers. Some well-known examples of beers with Brett include Nightmare on Brett from Crooked Stave Artisan Beer Project and Consecration from Russian River Brewing Co. 

In addition to talking about Brett, hosts Harrison Hickok and Jon Dispenza welcome Untappd's Executive VP of Product, Kyle Roderick, to the show.
