Sour Beer Day: September 8th

7 Sep

Saturday September 8th has been designated Sour Beer Day. In days of old, beers that had soured would be frowned upon by most beer drinkers. These days, sour beers are revered by many. But what is a sour beer? Well, it is a beer that has an intentionally tart or sour taste to it by allowing wild yeast strains or bacteria to be added to the brew. Common styles are Belgian lambics, gueuzes and Flanders red ales.

So, what are you celebrating Sour Beer Day with tomorrow?

Me, I’ve got this little baby in the cellar at the perfect drinking temperature of 52 degrees.
