Since then the bar has been raised, as breweries such as Russian River Brewing Company, Jolly Pumpkin Artisan Ales, and the Lost Abbey, not forgetting New Belgium as well, have released sour beers that strike off in directions all their own: aged in fresh wine and spirit barrels; flavored with dry hops, local fruits, and spices; and brewed with more assertive malt bills. 10 Today it can sometimes appear as though every American craft brewer has released a sour beer, but the required investment in time and space means that few of these brewers devote a large portion of their production to them.

Since then I have continuously experimented, fermenting batches of beer with microbes other than brewer’s yeast and writing about my experiences on my blog, The Mad Fermentationist. Why would I write this book when there are already a number of other great books that delve into sour beers? These include, among others, Sparrow’s Wild Brews, Jean Guinard’s Lambic, Classic Beer Style Series 3 (Brewers Publications, 1998), Randy Mosher’s Radical Brewing (Brewers Publications, 2004), and Stan Hieronymus’ Brew Like a Monk (Brewers Publications, 2005) and Brewing with Wheat (Brewers Publications, 2010).
