New Belgium Lips of Faith series has a couple of great sours, although you may have missed the window for them this year. La Terroir and La Folie are both fantastic.

Goose Island has some really good ones as well, but they are pricey. Lolita and Juliet.

Jolly Pumpkin and Jester King which were both recently picked up for distribution in Missouri are also breweries with a few sours in their regular rotation. But you may only find them at a few locations though.

The tricky thing to finding a good sour beer is that they are not all labeled the same. Some are list as American wild ales, some are lambics, some are saison/farmhouse ales. And not all beers labeled with those styles may even have that pronounced sour flavor to them.

Most things labeled Belgian style ale aged in oak are pretty swell sours.

And I have over a case of various new Belgium sours sitting in the dark....

Ya. Not a connoisseur by any means, but mostly tastes like tequila. Didn't drink a ton, but it went down fairly well when mixed. I think they're going to give me a deal on the next one (I'll probably grab a few) because of the shipping issue.

The Schlafly pumpkin ale has a higher alcohol content, so it should be good for like a year.

A local wine store has some of the new belgium lips of faith stuff on the shelf, guess I had better grab a bottle or two.

There are a few Missouri locations where you can find some Hanessens Artisanal sours around. Check out their Oude Kriek.

And just be forewarned sours are pretty expensive

What're some other sour beers that are fairly easy to find?


Also grabbed some more schlafly pumkin ale since the hyvee I was in still had some. Dated 10/17- hope it's still as good as it was in october!
If you can find it, try this sampler Gomers Midtown on Broadway carries it, but not sure where you are..

The Pumkin Ale is still good as ever, but you've got to spin the bottle a bit, as a lot has settled to the bottom.

I like Lolita a lot. Bubbles in Gladstone has a whole shelf full of the 750. I think retail is 18.99

Here are our January Chalkboard Series selections-




If nobody monds me posting this every month in here I will keep doing so. If you haven't tried one of them come on out and say hi!


We swap out five new ones each month, and next month is our annual beer review so we are also dropping the bottom 20 beers on our profile and bringing in 20 new ones.
