Karl Strauss will celebrate 24 years of brewing with their version of a Flanders-Style Ale. Aptly named 24th Anniversary Flanders-Style Ale, this has been aging in oak barrels since last year’s anniversary party and is part of Karl Strauss’s ever-expanding barrel program. If you get the chance to try this beer, Karl Strauss invites you to tweet them your sour face @Karl_Struass with the hashtag #sourface.
“We’ve been experimenting with sour beers for a while and we thought it would be fun to barrel age a bigger version of our Flan-diddly-anders. The Flanders style is tart enough to make sour fans happy but still accessible enough for people who might not have tried a sour beer before. It was a fun beer to make.”
The 24th Anniversary will be available at their brewery for their 24th Anniversary Changing of the Barrels Party on February 2nd to the 100 few with tickets. During this intimate event, guests will also be able to taste a sample of next year’s doppelbock before it hibernates in barrels until next year.
