Sour beers? Made here in SA? Don't mind if I do!

Sour beer is a type of beer that is characterized by its tart, acidic, and sometimes fruity flavor profile. This distinctive taste is achieved by adding specific types of yeast or bacteria during the brewing process, which produce lactic acid and other sour compounds. Some of the most common microorganisms used in sour beer production include Lactobacillus, Brettanomyces, and Pediococcus.

Sour beers can range in intensity from lightly tart to mouth-puckeringly sour, and they can also have other flavors, such as fruit, spices, or herbs. Some of the most popular types of sour beer include Berliner Weisse, Flanders Red Ale, and Lambic.

Sour beers are often appreciated by beer lovers for their unique flavor profile and refreshing quality, especially during the warm summer months. They are also gaining popularity as a type of craft beer, with many breweries experimenting with different ingredients and brewing techniques to create unique and innovative sour beer styles.
