While IPAs continue to grow, and the beer category gets increasingly diverse, 2018 has been the year of the sour beer.

Though the style holds just 0.1% of the all beer sales in the US, consumers just couldn’t seem to get enough of them this year. Sales rose by a staggering 42.7% in the US, with beer fans buying $14.8 million worth of sour ales between July 2017 and this summer.
