2nd anniversary & sours at Kane

Kane Sours 1

Kane Brewing salutes its second anniversary as a brewery on Saturday, Sept. 21, with a dozen and half beers on the tasting room tap lineup, welcoming the next business year with brews hoppy and bold.

Besides marking a milestone, the event also offers a snapshot of the Monmouth County brewery's exploration of sour beers. The day's tap list includes three sours, Apiary Brett, Sour Blonde and Sea Change, reflecting the folks at Kane's tastes for not only well-hopped American IPAs, rich dark ales, but some of the more intriguing Belgian styles as well.

When your love affair with beer sours

MagritteCraft beer tends to pivot off what the next big thing is – bright shiny objects, if you will. Double IPA, black IPA, Belgian IPA, ryePA, imperial this or that … They've all been on the hit parade as styles evolve, if not outright collide sometimes to form hybrids to grab craft fans' attention.

It's an ongoing thing, which is why you may have heard some people in your beer circles declare they're over the hop bombs, over IPAs. "I'm into sours," they say.

Sours may be the next stampede, never mind that they've been part of the beer mosaic on the store shelves for a long time (how could they not be with Belgian brews being so popular?). If they are indeed next in the spotlight, then it's a logical choice. They run the gamut of pleasantly tart to oh-my-god funky. And for acceptance, they demand a little effort on your part.

To run through the list of Garden State craft brewers who have made sours is to name-check probably half the breweries in the state.
