Top beers in the worldwide press

16th April, 2014 by Lauren Eads

Sour In The Rye, The Bruery, Placentia, California, US

The Bruery Sour In The RyeTracy Hurst, guest writer for Chicagoist.com, recommended this sour rye ale from California which she said was both “delicate and complex”.

She said: “Sour in the Rye is brewed with “around 40%” rye malt, and aged in oak barrels. The beer pours an opaque, dark amber jewel-tone with a soft, pale tan foam. The aroma is fruity-tart with a tiny hint of oak. Rye spice and sour flavors join forces to bathe the top of your palate and then slowly fade into a clean, malty sweetness that lingers for just a minute. This beer is both delicate and complex; bombastic and understated. I’m so glad more people are working with rye in craft brewing. The earthy spice of rye malt shines brightly in this brew. Anytime a beer celebrates the beauty of a particular malt, I just, well… I get misty.”

Sour rye ale, 7.8%

    Is it that likely that the world media are only talking about north American beers? Shame that. I’ve spent a lot of time in the USA sampling the amazing range of craft beers available there after the explosion of the scene 19 years ago. That said, there are (many!) other countries doing amazing things with beer. If half of the beers presented here as favourites of the ‘worldwide’press’were North American it would be considered heavily biased. With all of them coming for North America it’s just plain farcical. Other countries are making great beer, and the journalists worldwide are talking about it. Just not any journalists you know, apparently.
