    Simply put: What's your favorite Sour Beer?

    One of my favorites has to be Cerise Cassée from Cambridge Brewing Company, which I'm stoked to be able to try again at FUNK Boston: A Wild & Sour Beer Fest.

    How about you? And make sure to link to the beer listing on BA!

    Cheers!

    For sure Bug Zapper from Avery in Boulder, CO. Had it when visiting their spot last week and went home to buy it immediately. Seasonally available but a great great summertime beer. If you don't like ginger, you won't like it.

    Sour Monkey by Victory is by far one of my favorites.

    Untitled Art Citrus Berliner is also a great choice

    My favorite is more of a journey. Go to Crooked Stave Tap Room in Denver and have them take you on a journey from least to most sour. I can't remember each name anymore, but I'll never forget the experience.

    Almost anything Paradox Brewing puts out I will drink.. I consider them the best around when it comes to sours. That being said, I have had quite a few by Local Relic, and Black Spontaneous that I have loved as well.

    Anything from the Smuttynose Sours series, especially Blueberry.

    Seaquench by Dogfish Head Craft Brewery in scenic Delaware is a gateway to Sours

    I would have to say the Imperial Cabinet by The Bruery and Jester King, I’ve been trying to try as many sours as I can from amazing names such as Cellador, Cantillon, ToøL, and Allagash, but the Imperial Cabinet definitely took the cake.

    Beatnik Sour by Exile Brewing in Des Moines, Iowa. Haven't been able to find anything close to matching what made me love this style.

    The beer that first introduced me to sours 20 odd years ago is still readily available, Monk's Cafe Flemish Sour Ale (brewed by Brouwerij Van Steenberge). I find it to be the perfect balance and measure all other sours based on my love of this.

    Not super well versed in the sour game, but I recently had the Bellwoods Raspberry&Blackberry Jelly King and damn that was awesome.

    I would say any of the Flora variations from Hill Farmstead.

    Some of the wild ales from Side Project and Jester King come close.

    A recent excellent sour I have enjoyed is Composition 2 from HOMES care of @FlintB

    My fave sour is Wicked Weed Cerise Morte. So delicious. Wish it was available closer to St. Louis!
