Future Mountain's second iteration of their Anniversary Ale was blended with the help of some loyal locals who had supported their business through thick and thin. Managing to round everyone up in-between lockdowns, this blend of golden sour ales was assembled and laid to rest in oak barrels so that the components could mingle and get to know each other. It's bursting with lemon sherbet freshness, along with ripe nectarine, and a hint of earthy blue cheese funk. Complex, generous, and oh-so-delicious! Happy Anniversary, Future Mountain! (375ml) 5.8% ABV

About Sour Beer

There are many ways you can make sour tasting beers, but there are two main methods you'll see popping up on beer labels today...

  • Kettle Souring: The fastest way to get sour and funky. Kettle souring uses just one strain of bacteria to produce a clean, sour flavour. Lactobacillus is used to sour the wort, which takes just 24-48 hours! Speedy. Yeast is then added and the beer goes through fermentation, just like in any non-sour beer.

  • Mixed Fermentation: Time to get a little more traditional. This method uses a combination of different yeasts and bacteria to ferment and sour the beer. They're usually barrel aged (but not always) and age for months, sometimes years. The resulting beers are complex, with depth and layers—best sipped, not guzzled!

So Which One Should I Drink? If it's 30 degrees and you want something clean and fresh, reach for a kettle soured beer. If your beer nerd mate is coming over to open a few bottles, go for mixed fermentation.

And if you think you don't like sour beer, you probably just haven't found the right one yet.
