    I cant wait to try New Belgium's Le Terroir. I got their Eric's Ale the other day and havent opened that yet either.

    New (to me) sours Ive been digging lately are Three Floyd's Skull Ole, Suburban Beverage by Perrennial, Iduna Wild Cru from the Wild Beer Company, Luciernaga Firefly by Jolly Pumpkin, and Pina Agria from Odell. And most of the Almanac sours I tried at their Chicago launch tap takeover at Bangers and Lace the other day were amazing.

    Although more in the "funk" category, Ive also got a few bottles of Crooked Stave Surette and Vielle that Im working on as well.

    I second the praise for those Destihl sours, love them!

    I found the Three Floyd's Skull Ole almost undrinkable, over the top sour & so far out of balance I could not finish the 10 oz pour ($10 to boot!) I've had better sours from TF's in the past.

    Just moved to Denver area and have had most of the Crooked Stave beers both on tap at their tap room and in bottles. I find them to be very good and will keep them in the rotation for sure!

    In other 3F sour news, cracked a bomber of Pear Bear for Da Bears. It's stupid expensive and on the sweet side (which i know is an instant non-starter for some) but i think this is their best sour offering so far with an incredible pear/apple nose.

    not a sour (i know, thread) but Prairie Artisan Ales Brett C is definitely worth seeking out if you're into hops & brett funk

    DeStihl Brewing - Here Gose Nothin.

    Intensely sour. Just an amazing beer that is readily available and not terribly expensive.

    Lol - long time, huh?
    Just a note. I'm usually late to the party about anything and everything.

    Example:

    Two weeks ago, I had my first Lolita draught.
    It was NOTHING like the bottle I bought a few years ago. Yes, I know that they SHOULD be different, but hot damn...That was the best beer I've had to date. I'm guessing they are pretty pricey when available, but if I ever see it on tap again, it's a definite.
    We cannot be friends if you do not know the difference between Mayo and Miracle Whip.

    Does Goose Island still have a tap room? If so, I'm guessing that the Lolita is (almost) always served there. At least, it used to be back in the day, though A LOT has changed in the past few years.

    Two, actually. There's the rebranded and redecorated (and now 100% AB-InBev owned) brewpub, Clybourn Brewhouse. They reopened somewhat recently and are not yet producing a lot of beer in-house. Lolita is showing as being on tap at the moment (click 'what's on tap' via the links below).

    There's also the tap room at their production facility at Fulton and Wood. No Lolita but they do have last year's Halia.

    Also related, they added a private event space to their barrel-aging warehouse (just to round out the Chicago-based Goose facilities).

    Goose released a lot of their 'Sour Sisters' in 12oz. 4-packs for $35-40 since last year or so. I didn't see them in the usual places so I don't know if retailers balked at carrying them in the first place or they remain in such limited supply that not much is packaged.
