BJCP Category 17 (Sour Ale) tonight at Office Hours.

Tonight at Office Hours (in Prost, Pizzeria & Public House), you'll almost certainly sour on the experience, because it's time for a tasting of Category 17's Sour Ales, and a dip into the strange worlds of Acetobacter, Brettanomyce and Lactobacillus delbrueckii.

17A. Berliner Weisse
17B. Flanders Red Ale
17C. Flanders Brown Ale/Oud Bruin
17D. Straight (Unblended) Lambic
17E. Gueuze
17F. Fruit Lambic

As with last week's Belgians, I must again ask for a bit larger tasting fee of $10 a head tonight. The kicker is that a few of these are impossible to find at present, and it might be a while before we get them back owing to wholesale distribution problems.
