For a couple of years now, we have been stockpiling various funky ales for a series of Sour Sessions, and after 2 consecutive years of hosting the Night of the Living Ales events, as well as a couple of previous Sessions, we are ready to rollout the fifth in our Wild Ale installments...

This coming Monday, February 4th, 2013 brings the fifth edition! Our Beer Director and his staff have more than a penchant for sour ales, and so we consistently stash away some of the coolest, rarest and most exquisite wild beers for these Sour Sessions; this coming Monday is sure impress, as we unleash another collection of living brews on Washington, DC en masse!

Volume 5 in the series brings 20 funky drafts and casks to our taps and engines, with such beauties as Cantillon Rose de Gambrinus on tap, the latest kegging of Abbaye de St. Bon-Chien coupled with the brand new BFM SqRt 225th Anniversary Saison aged in Bon-Chien barrels, Riterguts Gose (DC debut for this rare and elegantly tart brew), Del Borgo Maledetta: Zymatore Barrel-Aged as well as Del Borgo Caos (brewed with Malvasia white wine grapes), the scarcely seen on draft Vapuer Cochonne, and the most recent draft vintage of Tilquin Gueuze, from Belgium's newest Lambic blender!

So...if you love funky craft beer, you should head over for some of this!

There is no admission fee for this event and all Sour Session drafts will be priced individually in 4 oz. tasters and full glass pours.
