Episode 227 – Chicago Sour IPAs

chicago sour ipas

As an amalgamation of two styles seen as so disparate in their processes, it’s easy to call Sour IPAs a gimmick – a style that cannot nor should not exist – or simply, liquid clickbait. We put our own skepticism to the test with five of our favorite local breweries and their spin on the tart, juicy, and (supposedly) hoppy trend. We learn about the different methods brewers use to create these mashups, all while we’re desperately seeking the IPAness. Hear our Saisonathon night experiences, a fear of disembodied mouths, a call for Gravy IPAs, a plug for Ryan’s old websites, and the reason why we oh so desperately could use some more mugwumps right now. #liqbait
