Beer Tasting: Off the Lambic Path
August 22, 2018 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm
We love traditional lambic and gueuze beers here at Brasserie V; it’s one of the styles that built our restaurant’s beverage program, and we’re still one of the only bars in the state to carry them consistently. These are artful, carefully considered beers that take months of logistical planning, years of waiting, and more than a little luck. But we’re not doing those…
Instead, we’re focusing on the wilder (heh heh) world of sour beers, celebrating breweries that take the model and concept of sour beer beyond boundaries, beyond the confines of BJCP guidelines or preconceived notions. These beers are weird.
