MASH YOUR OWN MARCH: STARTING A HOME BREW

So you fancy yourself a craft beer connoisseur. You’ve sampled a wide range of beers from Edmonton’s local breweries, and around the world.

THE SCOOP ON SOURS!
If you’ve been paying attention to the Alberta beer scene lately, you might have noticed a “new” style of beer creeping its way into popularity—Sour Beers. In Calgary, Dandy Brewinghas a sour for every season and Wild Rose Brewery has the Cowbell Kettle Sour. In Edmonton, Situation Brewing has the WTF Blood Orange. And in Lacombe, Blindman Brewing has a range of kettle sours as well as barrel-aged sours. They’re distinct, fruity beers with a unique tartness—but what exactly goes into making a sour beer?
