Hops are one of four ingredients used to make beer. In your “hoppy” styles, or overly-hopped beers, i.e. pale ales and IPAs, it plays a larger than a quarter role.
Craft beer stores can be overwhelming and intimidating. For most beer buying folks, their comfort zones of IPA or Lagers do just fine for them.

Once a style relegated to the shadows and certain regions in Belgium, sour beer is now in the mainstream. So much so, we have to dedicate several of our taps specifically towards sour beer. We get asked all the time about what makes beer sour, so we thought we’d take a second to give a quick lesson in what makes beer sour and the different methods used to produce it. Please know that this will be a quick, barebones overview.
