Eight years ago Belmont Station took a chance and hosted and event that showcased beers that were a bit more sour than most. Since this time sour ales have gained in popularity, especially in the beer-centric crowd. The week long Puckerfest 8 is a celebration of sour, wild and funky beers and kicks off this Friday, July 11th and runs for one week.
Belmont Station’s 8th annual celebration of sour beers will keep all of your mouths puckering. Every night of the week will feature a different brewery or two or three that will offer up their rarest sour beers to the Station. And for you non-sour beer fans, they’ll keep some more “normal” beers on tap. We all need a palate cleanser!
Throughout the week look for special tappings, beers blended just for this event and “Meet the Brewers” events. The week long festival will feature the following breweries each day:
