An ale as complex and mystifying as a lovecraftian tale. A broth of barley and wheat is brewed, inoculated, and incubated over many day. The resulting miasmic concoction is fermented with Brettanomyces, creating a wonderfully tart beer which is unsettlingly delicious. Allowing this beverage to continue its slumber within this glass tomb will allow for mystical forces to further infuse this beer with otherworldly flavors and complexity.
Sour ale is a broad spectrum of wild ales, from the fruity and acetic Flanders Red Ales and Oud Bruins, to the experimental ales gaining popularity in the United States which use lactobacillus, brettanomyces and pediococcus in new and wild ways.
