Pork and beer, is there no better combination? How about sour beer and pork?
This weekend at the Sybarite Pig in western Boca Raton, a festival of sour beers will descend upon the establishment. With the world famous Avery-led Boulder Sourfest in its' 4th year, the proprietors of the Pig decided it was high time to bring some of that wild yeast love down to South Florida.
Starting on Friday, brews with names like Gasthaus-Brauerei Braustelle Freigeist Abraxxxas and Brasserie Trois Dames L'Amoureuse Rouge will be making an appearance at the decadent pork paradise, along with creations from famed Floridian brewer Johnathan Wakefield.
The notorious sour brewer (whose Miami-based brewery is scheduled to open "between late November and early December" of this year, as the Facebook page declares) will be tapping two of his highly acclaimed Berliner beers on Saturday June 8th at 7pm: the J. Wakefield Austin Milbarge Riesling Berliner and a surprise keg of a certainly magical elixir.
New to the sour beer game? Some approachable selections will be on hand for those looking to experiment a bit into the sour scene, with beers like Petrus Aged Pale and Lindeman's Framboise helping to guide palates into the sometimes intense flavors of this beer style. Expect something a little more fruity and tart from your beer.
Yep, it's going to be mouth puckering weekend. Find us there on Saturday.
