From brewer/owner Vasili:

What is a Wunderkammer?

The word roughly translates into ‘curiosity cabinet’ in German, and describes a contained collection of art, artifacts and specimens. It was like a personal museum for fascinating objects from nature, human history or other endeavor. This is where the aesthetic of the natural history museums and art galleries originated.

Why Wunderkammer?

Like it’s namesake, I attempt to bring together a collection of beers that is based on my curiosity and fascination with the world. Like our experience in the world, each beer is a one time only event, produced in small batches.

My goal?

Create great beers that are unique experiences. Collaborate with friends. Go on walks and see stuff. Grow a garden full of things. Have fun and be creative.

Volume two, bufo

The word is from the Latin name for all amphibians in the toad family (Bufonidae) ‘true toads’. I chose this name after the small toads I see hopping around in lawns and forests, blending in with the pinecones and dried leaves until they have to jump out from underfoot!

My goal was to make a beer that tasted like a Fall walk in the woods; chilly but bright, rich and earthy, dry and delicate.

I picked reindeer lichen and turkey tail mushrooms from woods around my house and other well trod paths, and mashed and boiled them with a light smoked amber wheat base. For beer-geek points, I made a base beer loosely based on Gratzer, a defunct Polish smokey, sour style of wheat beer.
