Dog Patch Sour Ale
Almanac Beer Company
A Note on This Beer
In every area, there are the beers and breweries that locals never stop raving about.
The folks at Almanac Brewing recently created a delicious barrel-aged wild ale named after their San Francisco neighborhood, Dogpatch. It’s the pride of their neighborhood, but it is a favorite all over the area.
In Dogpatch Sour, Belgium meets San Fran: the beer is modeled after the Flanders Red ale and features signature Northern California ingredients, including California Rainier Cherries and San Francisco sourdough yeast. It’s also oak-aged in Sonoma wine barrels.
With deliciously sour aromas of sour cherries, oak, funk and wine, Dogpatch Sour really does smell like wine country. The cherries play the lead in the taste, providing a moderate tartness that fades into sweeter, dark fruit and vanilla oak notes. As with most beers that use wild yeast, Dogpatch has unexpected funky-tart finish, but in the case of this beer it is tempered by the woody, savory flavors of oak barrel aging.
Impressively well-rated (“outstanding” on BA) and brewed just one time, the Dogpatch Sour is a unique opportunity to try another top rated local favorite.
