About This Beer
With El Cuatro Wild Ale, the brewers at The Ale Apothecary transport us to the Pacific Northwest with a true taste of the local terroir.
In this tart creation, the brewers use locally-collected cultures to release complex layers of wild Cascadian funk. Conditioning in fresh Oregon Pinot Noir Wine Barrels creates rivers of tannic cherry skin and vinous, jammy notes. Then they age this 11.44% ABV brew in brandy barrels for an additional 18 months to achieve deeper nuances of date, fig, and plum.
Every sip of El Cuatro encompases the terroir of the Oregon Cascades. Wild, funky notes from native yeast cultures add complexity and a tart, tangy body, while barrel aging creates nuances of cherry, plum, and date. Vinous, jammy notes linger on the finish, recalling a glass of Pinot Noir.
