Sour Solstice Celebrates Berliner Weisse & Gose

The delightfully tart and refreshing Berliner Weisse and Gose styles were all but dead in the United States just a decade ago. They've staged a remarkable comeback in recent years, and that's a good thing. This weekend, Imperial Bottleshop is hosting Sour Solstice, a festival dedicated to these styles. Whether you're a newbie or a die hard fan, this is an event you should consider.
