A Guide to Sour Beer for Wine Lovers

For those of you who haven’t really ventured into the world of delicious beer, I’d like to introduce you to what I call “gateway” beer: sours.
Sours are commonly made with wild yeasts and are often products of spontaneous fermentation. Styles that fall into this pretty broad category include lambic, gueuze and Flanders red ales – mostly Belgian styles. The brewing process is tricky but when done right it can result in an ale as complex as many wines. Keep in mind, the name rings true; sours are tart but they’re also really good.
