Brettanomyces. Bretta-whatta? In some respects, the use of this yeast (known as "Brett" to his friends), is a strange concept, mainly because it's often considered a contaminant for some beers--one that causes off-flavors. In fact, we're hesitant to even mention what those flavors are in the event it would dissuade you from tasting them. That said, let's just say it creates some "funkiness."

However, like most funky things, it's unusual but, when done well, can be downright captivating--which is why these wildly quirky beers have such a cult following. In fact, they have their own movement: The Brett Effect.

So Leanne is pointing the Brett Signal into the sky, calling all Beer Geeks (and anyone interested in an imbibe on the wild side) to come on down on this Thursday, as we taste these funky finds:

Boulevard Saison Brett
Stillwater Table Beer
The Bruery Saison Rue
