Somewhat quietly, Jerry Nelson from Une Année has been making some of the best sour beers in Chicago – or anywhere, frankly. On this show, we review the first five beers from the Le Seul series of wild ales and fall in love with the solera method. We also talk about Une Année’s recent news, share some info on the souring process from Jerry, and discuss the challenges of a sour beer membership program. Also, Craig’s voice is eating itself, Ryan gives Chris from Transient Artisan Ales tips on naming beers, and we play another (a)rousing round of Beers Against Humanity. The phrase “canonical dingleberry” has never been so appropriate.
Le Seul I (Reddish brown sour with tart cherries and cranberries)
Le Seul II (Hoppy golden sour with raspberries)
Le Seul III (Wild ale with blackberries)
Le Seul IV (Blended golden sour with peaches)
Le Seul V (Blended golden sour with kiwifruit)
