Stupid silly sour

 

Limited Distribution Belgian Beer Offers 100 Percent "Mother Beer"

to Create an Exceptional Tart Sour Taste
 

WHAT:   Stupid Silly Sour, one of the most sour beers on the market today, will be available for a limited time during August 2014 in bars in select cities across the country. Sour beer is characterized by an intentionally acidic, tart, sour taste. To create a sour beer, the sour "mother beer" is usually blended with a saison to create a blend with a slightly sour taste. Stupid Silly Sour offers 100 percent sour "mother beer" to push tartness to an extreme. It's a rare opportunity that sour beer aficionados won’t want to miss!  

Sour beers have been a part of life in Belgium for centuries, but they are hotter than ever thanks to their delicious sour/tart flavor. Global Beer Network, the exclusive U.S. importer for ten award-winning breweries, has been leading the sour beer trend with one of the widest selections of sour beers in the U.S.

 

WHO: Global Beer Network is bringing Stupid Silly Sour to select cities during August 2014 WHEN:    for exclusive opportunities for sour beer fans who want to taste one of the most sour beers available today.

Stupid Silly Sour is brewed by Brasserie de Silly. The brewery is located in Silly, a very small farmer's village in Wallonia, a region of southern Belgium known as the birthplace of the saison beer style. The original style of saison (meaning season) is a blend of two or three beers, with one of them being a slightly sour aged beer.
