Next meeting is Wednesday March 6, 2018.

We have Mark Heise of Rebellion presenting on sour beers. He was a past ALES exec member and is also a certified beer judge, an integral part of the brewing community, training new judges, giving public speeches, writing extensively and proud to say he’s had a hand helping professional brewers from Halifax to California develop new recipes *1.

You can find more about Mark on Rebellion‘s website, Facebook, or follow him on twitter.

Rebellion took a Bronze medal at the World Beer Cup in 2018 for their Flanders Sour Ale, under the Belgian-Style Flanders Oud Bruin or Oud Red Ale category.

If you have ever tried this beer you can understand why they won a medal, and if you have not you should go to Rebellion taproom or Sobey’s and pick one up. It should not be missed.

Speaking of sours, Rebellion also has their Flanders Sour Red on tap and a Peach Ginger Sour.
