Boulder SourFest tix go on sale tomorrow for the "wildest" beer party of the year
The second annual Boulder SourFest -- with more than eighty different sour ales -- will run from noon to 5 p.m. on June 11 at Avery Brewing Company in Boulder.
Sours are already shaping up to be one of the big beer stories of 2011, as brewers large and small dedicate the resources and expertise necessary to make these unusual, Belgian-style beers. Brewed with "wild yeasts," sour beers take on funky odors and flavors that can be off-putting to the uninitiated -- and addictive to those who have bought in.
Tickets are $45, up from $35 last year; buy them at www.averybrewing.com or www.ticketalternative.com. Proceeds will benefit the Colorado Brewers Guild.
