Recently my husband and I met up with friends at the DuClaw Brewing Co Sour Me Festival. We arrived on event day armed with a list of flavors we were dying to try. As a newly discovered sour beer fan, I was very much looking forward to attending a beer festival where there were actually things I wanted to try! Unfortunately, the event did not go as planned and we weren’t able to try as many as we had hoped. However, we were able to try a handful of the ones were really excited about and I’m happy to report that they were delicious!
These four were my favorites:
Tropical Kool Aid
I was skeptical about this- I haven’t had kool aid since I was in elementary school, but the nostalgia of my childhood won and I gave it a try. DuClaw Brewing Co. pulled through and the Tropical Kool Aid tasted just like alcoholic kool aid- now where can I find the Kool-Aid Man?
Sour Me White Wine Barrel Aged
The Sour Me White Wine Barrel Aged beer is refreshing and light, perfect for a hot summer day. It’s was the right amount of sweet and crisp for a summery beer.
Sour Me: Raspberry
Delicious, not too sweet and tasted like the fruit. You get what you expect with this one!
Sour Me Unicorn Farts
DuClaw’s Unicorn Farts beer tastes like sweetarts and sweettarts happen to be one of my favorite candies. This particular beer has been a hit in Baltimore and beyond and we can’t get enough of it! The glitter swirling around the glass doesn’t hurt either.
Honorable Mentions (ones we weren’t able to try but SCREAM Summer):
Strawberry Letter 23
Sour Me Pina Colada
I promise I drink other beers besides just DuClaw Brewing Co, BUT they are coming out with so many new flavors/fun collaborations and I particularly like sour beer which they do really well. As warmer weather becomes more of the norm I’m looking forward to sitting outside with a cold sour beer in hand!
