Sour beers are not for everybody. In fact, the first time many people try them they don’t even believe they’re beers. But if you’re a sour beer fan, more than likely you’re a raving lunatic looking to try every sour beer that comes your way.
On Sunday, July 20th from 1PM to 5PM, Bigelo’s Bistro in Edwardsville, IL will be throwing the fourth annual Sour Sunday. Mark Pruitt has put together a great list of sour and funky beers on draught for the day including Perennial Regalia, New Belgium La Folie, and Goose Island Lolita. There will also be bottle pours for sale of Boulevard Love Child #4, New Belgium Le Terrior, Goose Island: Halia, Gillian, Juliet, and Madame Rose.
The full kitchen at Bigelo’s won’t be running on Sunday, but Mark will be offering up Carbonnade a la Flamande (a delicious Belgian beef and onion stew), mini pulled pork sliders, and their house made potato chips and sweet potato chips, and Nathan’s Fire Roasted Corn Salad.
And because Mark is a beer geek at heart, he’s encouraging you to bring out those sour beers that you’ve been carefully holding onto in your cellar to share. This may be called Sour Sunday, but it certainly sounds pretty sweet to me.
