Soured: New Life For The World’s Most Ancient Beer Style

Hello Sour Beer Friends, I recently wrote a guest article for the Memphis Craft Beer website.  The article talks about the history of sour beers and how the American craft beer culture has not only embraced the sour and the funky, but has pushed these beers to new levels, creating styles and flavors not found in historic sour beers.  I hope you’ll check it out. Cheers! Matt “Dr. Lambic”...
