Get ready to pucker up like a teenager at a school dance because Oak Barrel is bringing you a virtual sour beer tasting to remember. Safely sip along from the comfort of your indented couch as we take you on a journey of all things sour, from the ye old history, modern trends and how the hell you pronounce Gosé.
What we’ll be trying
Slow Lane Brewing Mango & Passionfruit Berliner Weisse (3.4% abv 375ml, Botany)
Garage Project Electric Dry Hop Acid Test Sour (4.2% abv 330ml, Wellington)
Anderson Valley Briney Melon Gose (4.2% abv 355ml, California)
Little Bang Face Inverter Citrus Sour Ale (5% abv 375ml, Adelaide)
How the tasting will work
Each ticket includes 1 tinnie each of these beers. Tickets will be sold for $38, $34.20 for Oak Barrel members, including delivery to your door.
We’ll be sending out those packs from Monday 21 September, to ensure that we can get them everywhere they need to be.
Then on Wednesday 30 September we’ll go live with Oak Barrel's froth enthusiast and ferment nerd Mads Park-Neilson to discuss these beers and all things sour.
That will be live streamed through Zoom and The Oak Barrel’s Facebook and Youtube page as we field your comments and questions from around Australia.
We recommend between 90-120ml pours for the tasting event, so you’ll have some of beer left over for after the tasting.
The live stream video will be posted after the live event concludes - so you can do the tasting at your leisure. But if you want to follow along live, we recommend ordering by Monday 21 September.
