Lambic’s lil’ bro.
Meerts is a nearly forgotten style of lambic, traditionally produced from the late runnings of lambic mash. A lower alcohol, refreshing, table beer that is a staple at Wisconsin-based brewery, Funk Factory Geuzeria. Consider it a lighter, lowkey version of this quintessential brewing style.
- Funk Factory Geuzeria is one of the leading American Lambic producing breweries.
- It was started by Levi Funk, who fell in love with lambics and started making them in his basement.
- The process at Funk Factory involves using a turbid mash, similar to the process Belgium-based Gueuzerie, Cantilon, has implemented since the 1900s.
