In this swashbuckling adventure, Tim Reilly drops down from ‘up the Cape’ to share his coffer of craft brews. He takes us through the history of starting the Devil’s Purse Brewing Company in South Dennis, MA and brings out their signature Kölsch and several bottle-fermented old ales for us to sample. Tim explains the intentional use of brettanomyces to extract the full flavors of base grains with a super approachable floral bouquet.
We dive into the many effects that Saccharomycetaceae has on beer, then descend into other places it can grow (like wine or cheese) before landing on the couch in full recovery gear. This episode is sorry to any Soprano’s fan as well as Jim from Pennsylvania.
