Wunderkammer Bier is the brainchild of Vasilios Gletsos, (head brewer at the world renown Hill Farmstead Brewery) whose beers are based on the concept of Cabinet of Curiosity: merging “different ideas from anthropology and nature and other forms of art” and using ingredients directly from the woods of northern Vermont.
Each one providing a completely unique story and concept. His hope is that when people drink his beers they will “feel connected to those places and experiences”.
We joined Vasili (hiking miles into the woods) to capture him foraging for mushrooms, goldenrod flower and bramble leaf for a new series of beers called Gathered - a beer which should encapsulate a single time and place. Vasili, being a former art student, also hand prints the artwork for each label. Please enjoy this brewer profile for Wunderkammer!
