The power of the sour
These warm months of Fall, what beer should I choose?
A Lager, a sour, I’ve got nothing to lose.
Sours are specific to your palate and taste,
Tart, fruity, or salty no flavor is a waste.
Sours go back to the ancient brewing style,
Where wild yeast and bacteria were added with a smile.
Today brewers use ingredients from old times,
Fermentation is crucial, as the intense of the flavor climbs.
Fruit is a factor in some sour beers,
But the unpredictability is how these brewers make careers.
Varieties in styles depend on what’s used,
Check the bacteria if you feel so amused.
Berliner Weisse and Gose, just to name a few,
The varying ingredients, and brewer secrets constantly creating something new.

Put your palate to the test, you never know what style you may land.
So stop into Tapped there are sours to sip,
Step out of your comfort zone, let new flavors hit that top lip.

Then your love for craft beer will continue to grow.
