Olcan was fermented in French oak barrels using multiple strains of Brettanomyces yeast. The strains were selected for their ability to produce an array of fruit flavours and assertive funkiness. The beer was then dry-hopped in stainless tanks with American hops to compliment the tropical yeast notes and the gentle spice character from the oak fermentation.

Alcohol by Volume (a measure of booziness created by the yeast)
International Bitterness Unit (the bitterness of a beer from the hops)
Beer styles are the categorisation of beer into easily distinguishable types. When doing this we look at history, colour, carbonation, bitterness, ingredients, mouthfeel… the list goes on
We'd typically use a lightly kilned Base Malt in a beer recipe, then add Speciality malts (sometimes darker, more complex, different flavours) in small quantities to change the overall taste and colour of the beer.
Hops are used in loads of ways, and they can give different characteristics to beer such as Aroma and Bitterness– this is why they rock!
