    Was very interesting to hear about the process of making sour beers and the differences in all the barrels and microbes, etc. Equally as wonderful to taste from the barrel as well as a full flights. Love that they have such a variety of sours, something I don't feel I see very often.

    Great class. Derrick was very knowledgable not just about Sour Beers, but many others as well. All the students were really engaged and asked a lot of questions, which was helpful for everyone involved.

    Sour Beers 101 with Derrick was a joy and I would recommend the class to anyone with even a passing interest in sour beers. Derrick provided a brief and general overview of the brewing process, followed by elaborating on details about the souring process and the variations in souring yeasts and bacteria. Derrick also reviewed the different barrel types used in barrel aging. The class ended with a tasting that was delicious and covered by the class cost. The tequila gose was my personal favorite.
