For nearly three of years now, we have been periodically 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 now ready to rollout the next of our Wild Ale installments...

Monday, May 20th, 2013 brings the sixth 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; the sixth installment is sure impress, as we unleash another collection of living brews on Washington, DC en masse!

Volume 6 in the series brings 20 funky drafts to our taps, including 2 super-rare Lambic blends from Belgian Beer Importer Vanberg & Dewulf: we will be pouring the new vintages of both LambickX Private Label Batch #2 and of LambickX Detroch Blend! Allagash sent down some FV-13 (4 years aged in Foudres), we tapping 3 sours from Freigeist (Abraxxxas, Sauer Porter & Geisterzug Gose), and a couple of Zymatore Barrel-Aged brews from (Jan De Lichte & George Gale Gale Conquest Ale Masterbrew 2000). And so much more…(see below for the full list!).

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.
