Wild Beer Expert Embarks on Educational Acid Trips

Get ready to embark on a mindbending journey into the world of wild beers as Jeffers drops acid…

Acid knowledge, that is.

Indeed, Jeffers Richardson—director of Firestone Walker’s Barrelworks wild beer facility—is taking his trailblazing educational show on the road this fall under the banner of “Jeffers Drops Acid…Knowledge,” inviting you to explore how acidity shapes your sensory perception of wild beers.

“When it comes to wild or sour beers, acidity plays more of a role in the taste experience compared to traditional beers, which are more defined by their hop and malt profiles,” Richardson said. “This seminar is designed to explore the role of acidity, and to reveal not only what you are tasting in the beer, but also why.”

Perception vs. Reality

The seminars delve into the differences between pH and titratable acidity as well as the sensory relationship between smell and taste. Different concentrations of acetic and lactic acids are tasted, enabling you to discover the signature characteristics of each. Along the way, you learn how each of these acids shapes flavor, mouthfeel and overall perception.

The “Jeffers Drops Acid…Knowledge” seminar series originated at the brewery earlier this year and was met with enthusiasm, prompting Richardson to take it on the road.

“The response has been phenomenal,” Richardson said. “Many people are new to wild beers, and this is a really fun way to take a crash course.”

Each seminar then ends on a sour note with a special tasting of limited releases from Barrelworks to test your newfound knowledge and reinforce the lesson.
