A Patersbier with brett, aged in red burgundy barrels. Patersbier is also known as an ‘enkel,’ meaning ‘single’ in Dutch. The style likely came about when monks did an additional sparge of mash to extract leftover sugars. Once collected, it is brewed into a super sessionable beer. “Who is Brett?” you may wonder. It’s actually short for brettanomyces, a wild yeast strain that adds bubble and fizz with amazing tropical fruit flavours to IPAs.
