Hand-Stretched Pizza

We make our famous ‘beer dough’ fresh every morning using the finest authentic Italian ingredients, and a good glut of beer straight from the tap.

The Dough Process

Mixing: We mix 00 Caputo Flour, Salt, Water & Beer before adding primed fresh yeast. The beer gives the pizza an extra crispy base and distinct leopard spots.

Proving: Our dough is proved once at room temperature for an hour, before being portioned up, balled and cold proved once more for 24hrs. This makes the crust extra fluffy.

Stretching: The dough is hand-stretched to order, topped with the freshest ingredients from Grainger Market, and stone baked in our pizza oven at around 360 degrees celsius.

The Wild Beer Co
Wild Mushrooms + Wild Yeasts + Well Seasoned We love all things wild and foraged at the Wild Beer Co and we are surrounded by a smorgasbord of various mushrooms in the Somerset countryside. Fungi are at the heart of our brewery. Yeasts are micro fungi that do the hard work in making beer, we just feed them and put a roof over their microscopic heads. But it’s the amazing flavours and untameable nature of wild yeast strains that really excites us and when it came to pairing macro (mushrooms) with micro (yeasts) in a beer, it had to be the Chanterelle. Further layers are added with a hint of spice derived from fragrant white peppercorns balanced with a freshness from flat leaf parsley. This is the ultimate parinig to your mushrooms on toast!

Epic Saison 5.0%
Farmhouse Ale - Saison
The Wild Beer Co
NOTE: This beer is known as 'Somerset Saison' for export markets. Crisp + Zesty + Spicy Epic by name, epic by nature, this Farmhouse Ale is a transcontinental fusion of Belgium’s eclectic beer culture and the feisty hops of North America brought to life with the aid of West Country artisanal brewing wizardry and judicious use of the US-grown Sorachi Ace hop. On the nose, the hops deliver a big splash of tropical fruit, followed by ripples of well-seasoned spiciness spreading outwards. In the mouth a tangy, bittersweet fruitiness holds sway, while tangerine oranges tap dance their way across the tongue in the finish.

Evolver 5.0%
IPA - Brett
The Wild Beer Co
Hops + Brettanomyces + Hops The exploration of yeast strains and the different results we can achieve are beautifully exemplified in Evolver, a pale ale with a difference. 100% fermented with Brettanomyces. For the first 3 months the beer tastes the same as a fresh pale ale, then the differing flavour compounds start to shine through and after 6 months the Brett really takes hold. The brettanomyces yeast is particularly good at keeping hop flavours fresh for far longer than traditional brewing yeasts. The Evolver takes on a more complex character over time as the yeast and the hops combine to produce a new and exciting beer that will continue to evolve as the yeast slowly matures the beer. This is a beer that can be drunk fresh, as a normal pale ale or left to evolve and mature into a unique and unusual beer.

Sourdough 3.6%
Wild Ale - Other
The Wild Beer Co
Sourdough Culture + Oak Barrel Fermentation Our beautifully barrel aged sour beer has just been bottled and this batch is tasting incredible. its been blended from a mixture of 24 aged wine barrels and two bourbon to give it that kick of flavour. Read the story on sourdoughs creation bellow. Beer and Bread have been showing off the magic of yeast for thousands of years, we decided to combine the two. The old and the new, contemporary ideas and historical techniques and ingredients, a very special beer that combines all these things and more. 6 months before we even had a brewery we started talking to Tom Herbert about the Hobbs House Bakery's 58 year old Sourdough yeast, and whether we could use it to ferment a beer. Tom was excited, we were excited! After a year of trials (each trial took a really long time to develop) we decided to loosely base the beer on a Berliner Weisse style - a historical Sour beer style from Northern Germany, but with a Wild Beer slant to it. We have used the 58 year old sourdough culture and a little brettanomyces and put the beer straight into oak barrels for its primary fermentation.

There’s nothing quite as satisfying as a sweet, sticky doughnut. There’s also nothing quite as satisfying as a cold, refreshing pale ale. They’re satisfying in their own little ways. So what if they were combined? After a failed experiment with a pale ale doughnut - the beer just soaked into the dough and made it mushy - we decided to switch it up completely. The old switcharoo. Put the doughnut into the beer! Pump up the Jam combines the sweet jam flavours with a sweet bready malt base. It’s a jam doughnut in a pint glass. No word of a lie.

Trappistes Rochefort 10 11.3%
Belgian Quadrupel
Abbaye Notre-Dame de Saint-Rémy
Dominant impressions of latte coffee with powerful chocolate aromas in the nose. The alcohol esters are enveloped with hints of autumn wood, citrus zest (orange, lemon) and freshly baked biscuits. The initial taste is sweetly sinful. Beer and chocolate trapped into one single glass, a liquid milky draught with a backbone of bitter malt. The alcohol warms the throat and, in the finish, you will pick up traces of cloves, citrus, orange and mocha. The heaviest of the Rochefort beers, the 10 is a quadrupel style beer and can be recognized by its blue label.

Trappistes Rochefort 6 7.5%
Belgian Dubbel
Abbaye Notre-Dame de Saint-Rémy

This beer begins with a density of 16.5º Plato is 7.5% ABV. “Rochefort 6” is the oldest Rochefort Trappist beer, and was brewed empirically until the end of the Second World War. Until 1958, this was the only Rochefort beer that was bottled in both 33 cc bottles and 75 cc bottles. It has a strong malt taste and is slightly bitter.

Trappistes Rochefort 8 9.2%
Belgian Strong Dark Ale
Abbaye Notre-Dame de Saint-Rémy
Originally called "Spécial," Rochefort 8 dates to the mid-1950s. The name comes from the original gravity in "Belgian degrees."

Chimay Grande Réserve (Blue) 9.0%
Belgian Strong Dark Ale
Bières de Chimay
The Chimay Blue Cap, baptized "Grande Reserve" in 750 ml bottles is a dark Trappist beer with a powerful aroma, the complex flavor of which improves across the years. It was first brewed as a Christmas beer by the monks of Scourmont Abbey in 1956. This authentic Belgian beer, whose tinge of fresh yeast is associated with a light rosy flowery touch, is particularly pleasant. Its aroma, perceived as one enjoys it, only accents the delightful sensations revealed by the odor, all revealing a light but agreeable caramelized note. It is ideally served at cellar temperature (10 to 12°C).

Chimay Cinq Cents (White) 8.0%
Belgian Tripel
Bières de Chimay
Named Cinq Cents in 75 cl (25.4 fl.oz.) bottles, this beer, with its typical golden color, slightly hazy appearance and fine head, is especially characterized by its aroma which results from an agreeable combination of fresh hops and yeast. It was first brewed by the monks of Chimay at Scourmont Abbey in 1966. Above all it is the fruity notes of muscat and raisins that give this beer a particularly attractive aroma.

La Chouffe Blond 8.0%
Belgian Strong Golden Ale
Brasserie d'Achouffe
The gnomes of Fairyland are particularly fond of this golden beer. LA CHOUFFE, with its slight hoppy taste, combining notes of fresh coriander and fruity tones, is the drink which gives them their zest for life. At least, that's what these imps say when they are thirsty. Their secret used to be jealously guarded from one generation to the next until the day they shared the recipe with humans to seal their friendship. Of all the legends from the wonderful region of the Belgian Ardennes, the tale of LA CHOUFFE is the one which most merits re-telling.

Orval 6.2%
Pale Ale - Belgian
Brasserie d'Orval
NOTE: The ABV-value of this beer varies, in the United States 6.9% is used. The Orval’s brewery produces only one beer to sell, a beer with a high fermentation that continues in the bottle. It is 6.2% ABV. This beer is brewed exclusively from spring water, barley malt, hop cones, candy sugar, and yeast. The aroma and the fine taste are due more to the hop cones and the yeast than to the malt that is used. What’s special about Orval’s beer is that hops are added at two different stages of the production process. First, in the brewing room, a large quantity of very fine hops are added – this produces the famous bitter taste and is the reason why the beer keeps for a longer period of time. Later, in the storage cellars, hops are once again added. This is the so-called British “dry hopping,” which produces the delightful aroma that completely enraptures even the most carefully forewarned taster. In the tasting room, Orval’s beer and cheese make a really good pair: the unique shape of the bottle and the glass, the design of the label, the coasters and other publicity materials – it’s all a legacy from the early 1930’s.

Timmermans Kriek Lambicus 4.0%
Lambic - Kriek
Brewery John Martin & Brewery Timmermans
From the cherry tree’s transient flowers, its fruits ripen – round, red and packed with sunshine. Timmermans Kriek blends its famed lambic with this sweetness for a beer that can quench any thirst. Its natural freshness will make you blush for joy. Its flavour is all cherry, as is already apparent from its very powerful nose. Its acidity is neutralised by its agreeably sweet and fruity bouquet. Its taste pervades the mouth and lingers gently, elegantly tinted with summer cherries.

Timmermans Oude Gueuze 5.5%
Lambic - Gueuze
Brewery John Martin & Brewery Timmermans
Oude Gueuze is an appellation controlee : its label is protected. It is also known as the champagne of beers, especially as it is only available as a limited edition. Timmermans Oude Gueuze’s special flavour derives from its time-honoured method of preparation. It is a blend of old lambic, which has been aged for three years in wooden barrels, and young lambic which ensures spontaneous fermentation in the bottle. The different lambics are carefully selected by the brewer to obtain a perfect flavour. After it has been produced, Timmermans Oude Gueuze, which is refermented for four months in the bottle, continues to improve for 20 years. Discovering the world of the Brettanomyces, the name given to the spontaneously fermenting wild yeast at the heart of the legendary lambics of the Senne Valley, is a fascinating experience. This little marvel of bitter flavour will win you over by its subtlety of taste in which lambic never means sourness. A wild and fresh aroma is combined with a completely emancipated taste from the very first sip, leaving a flavour of authenticity on the palate while maintaining all the mystery of the Brussels gueuzes.

Tripel Karmeliet 8.4%
Belgian Tripel
Brouwerij Bosteels
Tripel Karmeliet is still brewed to an authentic beer recipe from 1679 originating in the former Carmelite monastery in Dendermonde. Written over 300 years ago, this recipe describes the use of three kinds of grain: wheat, oats and barley. The name Tripel karmeliet thus refers both to its origin and its in-bottle refermentation. From many trial brews of multigrain tripels carried out at our brewery in the 90s, it appears that the particular historic combination of the 3 kinds of grain still remains the ideal blend.

Tripel 8.0%
Belgian Tripel
Brouwerij St.Bernardus
St.Bernardus Tripel is a traditional abbey ale brewed in the classic "Triple" style of Belgium's best Abbey Ales.

Westmalle Trappist Tripel 9.5%
Belgian Tripel
Brouwerij der Trappisten van Westmalle
Was first brewed in 1934 and the recipe has not changed since 1956. It is made with pale candy sugar and has a very pale color produced from a mash of light pilsener malts. Styrian Goldings hops are used along with some German varieties and the classic Saaz pilsener hop. After a long secondary fermentation, the Tripel Westmalle is bottled with a dose of sugar and yeast. This beer holds up well in the bottle over time and seems to soften with age.

Delirium Tremens 8.5%
Belgian Strong Golden Ale
Huyghe Brewery
NB: Depending on the location and batch, this beer can be either 8.5% or 8.7%. Please do not post an edit request asking to change it from one to the other. The allusion to pink elephants and the choice of names is not due to chance. With a particular character, the unique taste of results from the use of three different kinds of yeast. The result is a finish of peppery bitterness without aggression. The gray bottle hides a mystery awaiting discovery by the none faint of heart.

Kasteel Rouge 8.0%
Fruit Beer
Kasteel Brouwerij Vanhonsebrouck
Kasteel Rouge is a unique blend of Kasteel Donker and macerated cherries. The ruby red colour, the rich foamy head and the sweet attack result in a specialty beer with a balanced taste and subtle hints of cherries.
