Budding cells is a new offshoot label by bentspoke brewing company dedicated to barrel-ageing and mixed-culture fermentation. The name comes from the unique processes at play when we lay beers down to rest in barrels at our mitchell brewery, leaving the wild yeast and bacteria to work their magic. This ancient brewing technique relies on wild yeast cells budding and multiplying and consuming the oxygen, which in turn encourages the bacteria to sour and flavour the beer.
