Four Sour Beers To Try This Fall

Four Sour Beers to try this fall

Before my first sip of a sour beer, I usually ordered wine or a cocktail. I considered myself one of those people who just didn’t like beer. The taste of hops was adverse to my palette, but it’s often found in a lot of beers as a stabilizing agent and it lends a potent flavor. It wasn’t until I tried sour beers that I started to really enjoy drinking beer. Crisp Autumn days are perfect for a tart sour, so if you’re interested in try this style of beer, here are four to get your started.

Best Sour Beers

Rodenbach Grand Cru

The Rodenbach Brewery was founded in 1821 in Belgium and is most noted for their sour ales in the flemish red style. The Grand Cru is the smoothest of the beers on this list and is a favorite I return to again and again. It’s a blend of 1/3  young beer and 2/3 beer aged in large oak vats for 2 years. A sweet smokiness with notes of cherry, nutmeg, dates, cloves and molasses.

Petrus Aged Pale Ale

This beer was actually the very first sour beer I ever had. It was my gateway drug that sparked my obsession, and endless thirst, for sour beers. Also brewed in Belgium, this crisp sour ale is made by the De Brabandere Brewery. A pale shade of gold, it blends the tartness of grapes, apples, and pear with zesty orange and a malty finish.

Monk's Cafe Flemish Sour Beer

Monk Cafe’s Flemish Sour Ale

One thing I love about this beer, besides the taste, is that it is made by Monk’s Cafe right here in Philly. There are so many great breweries in the Philadelphia area and this is just one example. Named as one of the top 100 beer bars, Monk’s is an iconic Belgian beer emporium. This tart sour ale is a deep red in color, with sour notes upfront and a creamy malty finish.

Funky Pumpkin Spiced Sour Beer

Funky Pumpkin by Boulevard Brewing Co

Pumpkin beer is a seasonal favorite, but it wasn’t until I tried this pumpkin sour by Boulevard that I got on the pumpkin bandwagon. Boulevard did a great job with balancing all the flavors – not too much pumpkin, with just the right amount of spice (cinnamon, allspice, nutmeg, and ginger). Several of my friends who also aren’t fans of typical pumpkin beer also enjoy this one.

  • Met with the @nederlandctcc this morning at one of my favorite local coffee spots @saltocoffee to chat about doing some volunteer work with them for their marketing and website design. They do a lot of great work with the local youth in the area and I’m excited to bring my skills to the table and help them get the word out! Stay tuned - we have some neat ideas up our sleeve.

  • I’ve been going back and forth about what I want to post here on this account. It started as a personal account to share photos of life in Philly (now the mountains), books I’m reading, and of course cute dog photos.

But lately I’ve been sharing a bit more about what I do as a web designer and developer. It’s hands down the best job I’ve had so far. I love being able to blend tech and creativity every day. I also get to work with other people who are super passionate about what they do and get to be a small part of their journey. It’s pretty awesome.

I hope you don’t mind, and might even enjoy, when I share what I’m working on. One reason I like sharing this is to show that you don’t have to be a typical computer science nerd to be a developer. You can be a person like me … who lives in a log cabin, with satellite internet, eat tacos on the regular, and happens to get excited about creating with code. 💻👩🏼‍💻

  • Should you buy a pre-made theme or go with a custom web design?

In my latest blog post I explore when it makes sense to buy a pre-made WordPress theme and when it’s beneficial to work with a website designer to create a custom theme for your business (link in bio). #westcodigital #webdesign #webdesigner  #webdeveloper #webdevelopment #wordpress #wordpressdesigner #womenintech #learntocode #girlswhocode #remotework #workfromhome #denverco #boulderco #godlenco #coloradodesigner #coloradowebdesign #workfromwherever #womenwhohustle  #womenowned #smallbizsquad #femalefounder
