Made by Four Friends (Burning Sky, The Kernel, Mills & Olivers Cider) with a united love for wild and mixed fermentation beer and cider in April 2018. One brew of beer into the Burning Sky coolship for wild inoculation with each brewery and cider maker having 3 barrels each to express their own mixed fermentation culture. Five different beers were created. One barrel of each of the four producers iteration was bottled for a mono release to express the different yeast cultures, the rest was bottled for a blend unique to this project.
