This sour beer festival brings together 11 breweries championing tangy froths
Bodriggy Brewing Co is hosting its first ever festival celebrating sour brews. Electric Kool-Aid is a three-day festival celebrating sour beers, with 11 top breweries (including Bodriggy) coming to the party with their own takes on beers that make you screw up your face (in delight, we hope).
Among the beers that are piquing our interest are Sailors Grave Brewing’s Peach Melba Pavlova Cream Sour and 3 Ravens Brewery’s Wolf and Swill, a Sour Belgo containing lemon and fennel pollen. Sydney’s Batch Brewing Company (who have built a reputation for churning out sour brews with delectable flavours and punny names – such as “Cherry J Blige” and “Beasty Boysenberry”) is bringing its Big Punnet and Chapeau brews to the table. Other master brewers joining the fray are Site Fermentation, Garage Project, KAIJU Beer, Dollar Bill Brewing, Beerfarm, Two Metre Tall and (of course) Bodriggy Brewing Co.
All up there’ll be 64 taps pouring craft beer, wine and cocktails plus Latin American food served up by Bodriggy Brewing’s chef John Dominguez. A packed line-up of live entertainers and DJs will keep the party alive over the three-day festival, kicking off Friday January 17 until Sunday 19. Festivalgoers can also cast their vote for their favourite brew in the People’s Choice Award, with the winning brewery to receive a trophy on the Sunday.
