Fans of sour and bitter beer — which sound pretty unappealing on paper but are actually quite delicious IRL — will be interested in this event happening at Oakland's The Trappist
on Saturday. Eight breweries (Sante Adairius Rustic Ales, The Rare Barrel, Craftsman, Tahoe Mountain, Almanac, Woodfour, Drakes, and Mraz Brewing) will each be pouring a sour and bitter beer from their collection.
These unusual brews will be paired with a sour and bitter bite from six restaurants (Homestead, Perdition Smokehouse, Ramen Shop, Tamarindo, Miss Ollie's, and Abura-Ya), making 12 bites total, which should ensure that you can drink plenty of delicious beer without going to the dark side.
Sour/Bitter Fest 2014
The Trappist parking lot, just behind the patio. 460 Eighth St., Oakland.
Saturday, Sept. 6, 2-5 p.m.
