    California Wild Ales is making solid sour beers. Mostly seasonal fruited Wild ales. But they always have 10 varieties of sours on tap. Love what they have been making lately.

    Ok, good list overall but saying that American brewers have surpassed Belgian lambic producers is nonesence, no offence to our brewers who are indeed getting a lot better. Still a long ways to go to Cantillon and Drie Fonteinen. I will say that we have more diversity in the sour beer space, since we aren’t bound to traditions.

    Good Beer in Santa Ana has been very consistent in their production of sours. Recently the brewed a pastry sour that’s out of sight good. They also kill it on their IPA’s and NEIPA’s.

    Thanks for this list. Looks like I will be embarking on a quest to quench my thirst for sour beer! From my Yelp review –Additionally, one of my favorite sour microbreweries is in Rancho Cucamonga. Excellent selection, price, and service. If you like sours — or are curious — this is the place to wet your whistle. I had heard about this place from my brother, who lives in the area, and decided to give it a try. And boy, am I glad I did!

    Chinthya and Bryan Doty have crafted a modern tasting experience that combines a dozen different sours (with medieval names) with the décor of a Roaring 20’s speakeasy.

    I’d add Mraz Brewing in El Dorado Hills. Won Bronze in the Belgian-Lambic category in 2017 at GABF

    You’ve got to try BrewLab in Carpinteria! Some of the best small batch sour beers. They are too often under appreciated by the small community

    One of these breweries needs to make a marijuana beer. I will be trying a recipe in a few weeks but I’m not sure when to add it in. At the beginning I the boil, it would extract more THC, but you’d get a skunky flavor. Share your thoughts on when you would add it to the boil

    Also, I’m glad you get can Rare Barrel beers now without throwing elbows. Life is too short to stand in line for beers. Especially, when there are so many good ones readily available fuss-free! 🙂

    I’ve heard fantastic things about Horus Aged Ales, but it sounds like there’s 2 chances to get a taste – slim and none
