Sour beer isn’t for everyone (apologies to the woman in my Farmhouse Beer class who was horrified by a gueuze) but those of us who love them find them to be super refreshing. My old haunt (as both customer & bartender) Spuyten Duyvil is doing their annual sour beer bash tonight in perfect timing for the doldrums of summer. Whether it’s in the Lambic family, a Flemish red or brown ale, or one of the new riffs proliferating in the craft beer world, I’m a sucker for them all when the mercury rises.
