We soured the wort on the Hot Side with Lactobacillus for a few days and then brewed up this smooth and hoppy sour. It tastes like a big bowl of fruity candy or some chewable flavored vitamins, but what’s the difference? It’s sweet, tart, and sassy, just like the tasty cherry pie that your favorite aunt makes. For all the Aunt Sally’s out there, You know who you are...

Belgian-Style Sour Ale4.2% ABV

FunkwerksFort Collins, CO

This delicious creation was truly a product of creativity, ingenuity, and luck. Last summer we took a test batch of our Berliner Weisse style summer ale, Provincial, that didn’t quite hit gravity, and decided to have some fun with it! We added a heavy dose of raspberries to this sessionable, refreshingly tart beer. The end result was so delicious, we decided to recreate it! This delightfully tart fruit beer is stimulating and refreshing, with a citrusy raspberry aroma which transitions to a subtlety sweet and tart finish.

TRVE BrewingDenver, CO

Our first experiment in fermentation with our new house culture — a blend of saccharomyces, brettanomyces, lactobacillus, and wild yeasts. This provides a great balanced acidity and a medium level of funk while still being what we consider to be a fairly clean sour. We then dry hopped this beer judiciously to complement and not overpower the character provided by this house culture.

Brewed in tribute to the painkiller cocktail with the fine folks at The Jungle Bird Sacramento.

we used real prickly pear fruit (no extracts) and achieved a delicious, bright pink colored beer (just in time for Valentine's Day). This beer is sour with huge cactus fruit characteristics with some background notes of pear and lemon. When you tastes this beer, you'll also get some watermelon jolly rancher flavor, which is surprising because we didn't use any artificial flavorings.
