Petrus Aged Red

Hello Sour Beer Friends! Have you ever been unsure of whether or not you liked a beer  until you learned some key fact about it?  Well this was exactly what happened to both myself and my two friends who took part in my spring equinox sour beer tasting night last Friday (03/21/2014).  The beer in question was the slightly sour Belgian specialty beer Petrus Aged Red.

Birra del Borgo Duchessic

  Hello Sour Beer Friends! Up next on the roster from my spring equinox sour beer night is Duchessic by Birra del Borgo.  In the past decade, craft brewing has seen significant growth in Italy.  Similar to the craft brewing movement in America of the 1980’s, many Italian craft breweries are still trying to find their niche and hone their brewing skills.  However, one brewery I have found that is a clear notch above the competition is Birra del Borgo.  This brewery produces a variety of excellent beers including several nice sours and the beer well known in the...

Cantillon Rosé de Gambrinus

Hello Sour Beer Friends! Today is the second to last day of my vacation and I’m hanging out at home, alone, and without much to do…  So I thought what better than crack a few sour beers while relaxing!  First up on my list is Cantillon’s Rosé de Gambrinus. I will start this review by saying that this beer is very high on the list of my favorite beers in the world, and certainly is always stocked in my cellar.  Jean van Roy, the 4th generation owner, brewer, and blender at the iconic Cantillon brewery in Brussels, Belgium, is...
