First opening their doors in 1997, Propeller Brewing Company has gone from a small brewery on Gottingen St. brewing a Pale Ale and an Extra Special Bitter to become one of the largest brewery’s in Nova Scotia and a driving force in this industry. Owner John Allen has allowed the business to grow and branch into multiple locations and a comprehensive product line that includes beer, ready to drink cocktails, and craft sodas. They have won awards both locally and nationally for a wide array of products and continue to experiment with new styles and old favourites.

Tasting Notes

Hazy and juicy in appearance and jam packed with layers of unique funkiness from one of the more unique barrels to come out of Propeller’s Barrel House, the Wilder IPA is loaded with unique hops and finishes with a complex, funky twist. The final part of the Wilder IPA process was being can conditioned for over 3 months, this gives the beer a bright, zippy carbonation. 

 

Method

To create the Wilder IPA, a very specific barrel was chosen from Propeller’s Barrel House. The brewers wanted big bold fruit and funky flavours to create the next level to their Wild IPA releases. The Brett Wild Ale selected was aged in a white wine barrel for over 2.5 years with Escarpment’s Mothership Brett Blend (a blend of up to 10 Brettanomyces strains) producing complex layers of orchard fruit, oak and white wine, combined with rich, earthy, leather, funky goodness. Then, it was blended with a freshly brewed Nelson Sauvin and Citra IPA, that’s been generously dry hopped with Vic Secret and Galaxy.
