sundayfunkday522A lot of people talk about trends in craft beer. One of those trends are funky and sour beers. But let’s be honest, funky beers aren’t a trend, they’re the original beers.

Before the days of stainless steel and caustic, beers were aged in wood and inoculated in the open air. These beers were funky from the get-go. This isn’t a trend, it’s revisiting how beer used to be made.

To celebrate these funky beers, the International Tap House in Soulard is throwing their monthly Sunday Funkday this Sunday, May 25th beginning at 1PM. Here’s the line-up of beers:

Petrus Aged Pale
Petrus Oud Bruin
Jolly Pumpkin Bam Biere
Jolly Pumpkin Bam Noire
Liefmans Goudenband
St. Louis Gueuze Fond Tradition
Perennial Regalia
Perennial Hopfentea
Perennial Ginger Pear Regalia
Firestone Walker Opal

And for those of you that like funky music along with your funky beers, STL Hops’ own Jim Leabig (MF Grocery) will be spinning records (I am a liar, Jim will not be spinning records, but there will be tunes) from 2PM-4PM. Celebrate the original beers this Sunday at iTAP.
