Move over, boring brews – sour beers are the hip new thing! They’re so unique, you won’t even recognize them as beer. But don’t worry, they’re still alcoholic, so you can get your buzz on while flaunting your sophisticated taste. If you’re ready to expand your palate, here’s what you need to know about sour beers.

Wild Yeast And Bacteria Give It Taste

Sour beers are not your typical brew. They get their puckeringly tart taste from some wild yeast or bacteria hanging out during the brewing process. This gives them a sourness level that can range from subtle to strong, and some even have a funky aroma that might remind you of a barnyard (in the best way possible). Get ready for a flavor experience like no other!

There Are Several Styles Of Sour Beer

Sour beer is like a box of chocolates: you never know what you’re gonna get. Lambic is like the wild child of the sour beer family. It’s from Belgium and is made with yeast and bacteria that are so untamed, you’ll feel like you’re sipping on a jungle adventure. Flanders red ale is tart and juicy, like biting into a ripe cherry. This red hot sour will leave your taste buds begging for more.


They Take Time Getting Used To

Now, I know what you’re thinking – “sour beer? that doesn’t sound too tasty!” But trust me, they’re worth a shot. Sure, the sourness might catch you off guard at first, but give it some time and you might just grow to love it. And here’s the best part – you don’t have to worry about getting too drunk. That’s right, sour beers generally have a lower alcohol content than other beers. So go ahead, have a couple without any regrets!

Many Breweries Specialize In Sour Beer

If you’re interested in trying sour beers, there are plenty of options available at your local craft beer store or brewery. Popular American breweries that specialize in sour beers include The Rare Barrel, Jester King, and Cascade Brewing. Give a few different brands a try to see which ones you enjoy the most.

In Conclusion

In case you’re wondering why your face is contorting in ways you didn’t know were possible after taking a sip of a sour beer, don’t worry – that’s just the complex flavor profile at work. Not everyone may be down for this one-of-a-kind drinking adventure, but hey, you only live once, right?

So saddle up and join the sour beer cult – who knows, you may just discover your new favorite beverage. The only thing we can guarantee is that your taste buds will never be bored again. Cheers to a sourtastic experience!
