GABF Route Preview | Sours Route

GABF Route Preview | Sours Route

From the moment New Belgium’s La Folie touched my lips back in 2010 I was hooked. It may have tasted like liquified Shock tarts that first time, but ever since I’ve been hooked on sour beers. As we’ve said in our beginner’s guide to GABF earlier today it’s better to follow a game plan and for this year I’ll be aiming for the cream of the sour crop of beers. If you’re like me, be sure to track down these pucker inducing pours, a mix of proven sours and ones we’re excited to try.
