Before the advent of Stainless Steel, beer was typically fermented in wood tanks. Unlike the barrel-aged beers of today, where wood is usually prominent, most of these beers had minimal oak character.
Kicking & Screaming is fermented clean in a large oak tank (called a foudre), and, like the beers of old, has minimal characteristic oak flavor. While it is clearly a Pilsner, foudre-fermentation lends an understated roundness and a mild tannic focal point.
