Sour Beer Day Can be Experienced with New Craft Beers at Pizza Italia
Experience new craft beers on Sour Beer Day! Pizza Italia, located at 3023 Thousand Oaks Dr. Ste. 101, San Antonio, TX 78247, invites lovers of craft beer and locals to explore the trending world of sour beers, with a $9.99 craft beer flight special for Sour Beer Day on Saturday, September 9th from 11am-12am.
Known as an acquired taste, sour beer, can be described as having an intricate flavor. Sour beer is often described as tart, acidic, and almost bitter, but at the same time fruity. How is this possible? Sour beers are intentionally made with wild bacteria and yeasts; these wild organisms are what make the beer so enticing. Bacteria gives the beer its taste, while yeast adds the quality.
Sour beers are rising in popularity within the craft beer market. They are made using natural fruits that are typically sourced locally. These local producers provide some of the best quality ingredients for making beer. Many sour beers on the market come from smaller breweries, making them even more unique.
In honor of Sour Beer Day, Pizza Italia will offer a $9.99 sour craft beer flight to include the following four 4oz beer samples. Each brew has been chosen to give the guest an overall experience of the sour beer varieties on the market. Pizza Italia recommends beginning with a starter sour, such as the Sea Quench Ale from Dogfish Head Brewery, and then ending with a more full flavored sour, such as the Saison de Pasteque by New Braunfels Brewing Company.
- Sea Quench Ale from Dogfish Head Brewery. This 4.9 ABV session sour quencher is brewed with lime peel, black times & sea salt. This is a great starter for sour beers, which is why Pizza Italia recommends starting with this brew first.
- Sour Monkey by Victory Brewing Company. This sour brett tripel has a sharp citrus-laden tang that is tastefully tart. The ABV on this beer is 9.5%.
- Aunt Sally from Lagunitas Brewing Company. A unique dry-hopped sweet tar sour mash ale with a 5.7% ABV.
- Saison de Pasteque by New Braunfels Brewing Company. This is a Texas watermelon sour saison with a 6% ABV. This is a very special brew that was recently released on August 21st, as party of the brewery’s fruited sour saison series.
