Beer notes: New sour from Big Ditch, Wegmans sushi at Resurgence

Big Ditch works with Elmwood Village Farmers Market

Big Ditch Brewing Company (55 E. Huron St.) will release Bidwell Wild on June 23. The beer is a complex sour ale, brewed with unsold fruit, in collaboration with various farmers from the Elmwood Village Farmers Market.

The 5.4 percent ABV (alcohol by volume) wild ale takes advantage of the wild yeast and bacteria cultures present on the skin of the fruit, instead of using traditional brewer’s yeast.

Bidwell Wild was aged for approximately two years in wine barrels from Medina's Leonard Oakes Estate Winery before blending and bottling into 500 milliliters bottles, which were then dipped in wax for sealing.

The bottles will be sold for $15 each, with a limit of one case per person. A portion of sales will be donated back to the Elmwood Village Farmers Market. Call 854-5050.
