    Petrus Aged Pale Ale should be listed as well, not to mention Duchesse de Bourgogne and Vichtenaar.

    Cantillon Gueuze 100% Lambic is my favorite Gueuze. Such a great job of blending of the various lambics. Not saying it has to make 'the list', just one I personally enjoy.

    I'm very happy to see this. I've been wanting to find out try other sour beers. I'm a big fan of Duchess de Bourgogne. Merci.

    Hi all -- thanks for the comments! Cubanazo, I purchased these beers at a Whole Foods in New York City. Unfortunately, I'm not sure where they would be available near you but I certainly encourage you to keep an eye out for them.

    To clarify, the Woods by Cisco is a series. Monomoy Kriek is only one of several beers that are released throughout the year. My personal favorite is Lady of the Woods, which is usually available in late winter.

  • Obviously impossible to cover all the bases in an article like this, but I would like to throw in Cascade Brewing in Portland as one of my favorite sour brewers. They have a wonderful range of barrel-aged beers that when assembled together is beautiful both in range of color and taste.

    Some of these are not for the uninitiated; I remember offering a Duchesse de Bourgogne to an Englishman at dinner and he practically spat it out.

    Some other breweries that make great sours (some have already been noted): Cantillon, Drie Fonteinen, Verhaeghe, Cascade, Russian River, Allagash, Panil, etc.
