When Vince Desrosiers, the head brewer of Philadelphia-based Dock Street, decided to age a batch of his golden saison beer, he opted for a unique method…man.
Philadelphia magazine reports that Desrosiers will expose the beer to a steady stream of Wu-Tang Clan’s jams via Spotify for a period of six months. The brew, which features elements of pineapple and orange, will officially be titled “Ain’t nuthin to funk with.” But will this aging process create a unique beer?
Desrosiers acknowledges the gimmicky nature of the project, but he’s optimistic nonetheless. He noted that the whole thing started as a gag, but “…then we wondered if the bass would cause enough vibration to move the yeast around and create some different flavors during fermentation”.
Well, even if it doesn’t work, I’m pretty sure Wu-Tang would be proud.
Check out the Twitter video after the break…
So, it's official. We are aging a beer with Wu Tang. @zoowithroy @meechone @cranekicker spotify playing 24/7 pic.twitter.com/4Crj0K1QV4
