When Big Al Brewing opened back in 2008, owner Alejandro Brown and his team decided to devote an entire tank to sour fermentations. It is not a high-volume part of their business, but Al has a love for sour beers and wanted to be able to experiment with them. Over the years, they’ve pulled beer from the tank for various releases, and then the tank is topped off with fresh wort from a new batch of beer. The result is a tank of base sour beer that has its origins at the start of the brewery, but it is also evolving and changing each year as new wort is mixed in.
With the brewery’s 8th anniversary coming up next month, Alejandro has decided that it is time to release bottles of this 8-year-old brown sour ale. Bottles will be available on Saturday, July 23, at 1pm. The 375ml bottles will be $12/each with a limit of 4 per person. If you arrive early, please line up at the gate.
