SaveOnBrew's Top 5 American Sour Beers

09.21.2012 18:59 PM (comments: 0)

Are you sick to death of hops? If so, then sour beers are the furthest thing from it. Don’t let the idea of a “sour” beer churn your guts. The Wall Street Journal describes sour beers as “an acquired taste for most, but a life’s pursuit for a devoted few.” 

Basically, what gives a sour beer its unique flavor is the yeast. Most beers are fermented with yeasts selected by brewers for their predictable (and desirable) characteristics. On the other hand, sour beer makers are part cowboy, part mad scientist. They select brettanomyces yeast that is wild, untamed, funky, sweaty and even sometimes unwanted.

Green Bottle Beer Drops In Price!

09.09.2012 09:31 AM (comments: 0)

There are beer snobs who say anything that comes in a green bottle tastes “skunky.” And, to a certain degree, they’re right. That skunk flavor affixed to certain beers occurs when too much light gets into a bottle, so it makes sense.

However, that would make cans the superior vessel – and most beer snobs then complain the taste is too “tinny.” You just can't win, right?
