Anyone got any recommendations?

8 wired do a few. Try their Feijoa sour if you get a chance. Hippy Berliner is basically a Berlinner Weisse - and they do a cucumber version as well.

I really like the Gose style - it was traditionally made in a region where the water was quite salty - and is a slightly salty sour beer. The perfect post ride electrolyte replacement drink? There are a few of these around at the moment. Kereru do a Gose with seaweed in it...

Good George bring out some good seasonal sours and more and more of the other breweries are doing sours. At the Annual session beer challenge this year there were about 20 sours out of a total of 24 beers entered!

You know there are 2 quite different types of sour? The quick and easy sours (usually kettle sours) which only take a day or two longer than a normal brew (basically they let lactobacillis loose in the beer before they ferment it with yeast) and then there are the barrel sours. The kettle sours are usually quite a clean sour note (mostly lactic acid). The barrel sours have all sorts of complex flavours from a wide array of bugs chewing on the beer after it has been fermented.

Go see the man at the Beer Library on Colombo st outside the Sydnhm mall thing. He has an awesome selection and should be able to provide you with some...

The Wild Beer Co Gose was good, so was the Sierra Nevada one. Wild Beer Co was better though.



Parrotdog did a fresh hop sour for Hopstock, was awesome and more grapefruity than other sours I've had, not sure there will be any left though, presumably was keg only.

Some of the Wild Beer Co stuff is great!

I had a Behemoth Backyard Bliss this arvo. A gose with guavas (from the brewers backyard) in it. Was tasty.

No one ever had a sip of Lion Red and thought these are the guys we should sell to unless a metric fuckton of money was involved.

Hats off to Panhead dudes, they got to live the dream and make something of it.

It's shitty though cause I really lik Supercharger, but hey, they might be right, it might not change.

The girl gave me some excellent advice. Sampled the Freigeist Bierkultur range and came home with their Rhubarb Gose. YUM! Also bought home a Duchesse De Bourgogne (Flanders Red Ale - holy moly! Almost balsamic taste. Have to be careful what you consume it with though) and a British sour that I can't remember the name of just right now.

You talking about the Rarebird Moa? If so, a friend and I shared a bottle at the Dux on Wednesday. Only 4 bottles left! [edit] The Beer Library have some still too

On similar note - had a Tiamana Orange Wheat beer a few weeks ago which was exceptional.

The sour offerings from Moa are rubbish.

Got me the 8 Wired Feijoa Sour to try :cool:

Another one.

http://www.tuatarabrewing.co.nz/blog/ChampionbreweryTuataracraftsdealwithDB/

A bit closer to home, direct from the brewery is among the closest places for me to buy any beer.

But congratulations for the Vastas for being able to build something from the ground up and then get out while they're on top and still young and kicking. I bet a rest looks great after so much growth and work!

Fucking big business scum taking it all over just cos they can.

this is almost like history repeating itself. eventually we're gonna have 2/3 big breweries (owned by overseas corps) owning all the small guys just like they did in the 50s/60s/70s/80s///

another one to stop drinking because I dont want my money to go to the fatcat bastard corporate hollow suits and overseas megacorps... even tho i love Tuatara's APA,
loved the Supercharger, and quite enjoyed many of Emerson's brews, and now I just cant bring myself to give my beer monies to them


Thank fuck there's so many others on the market that are still independent. Garage Project are still the best by far. But Behemoth, McLeods, Liberty, etc all good drinking
