Sour Power Six Pack Sampler

From the Brewer – “Now available, the Sour Power Six Pack Sampler features three of Global Beer’s finest sour ale offerings. Included in the pack are two each of Monk’s Cafe Flemish Sour Ales, Petrus Oud Bruin Ales, and Petrus Aged Pale Ales.”

Petrus Oud Bruin Ale: Red & Brown Ale
“Dark ruby red – red as wine. The style is also called the Burgundy of Flanders, and is a very typical and common beer in West Flanders

Created by a secret blend of the aged and sour ‘mother beer’ with fresh brewed sweeter beer, this beer produces a sour-sweet balance, set off by the underlying bitterness of the hops. A discovery! The best in its style! Light in alcohol, exciting complex flavors and tastes come to the forefront.

Although serving cold is recommended, taking time to drink it will release more aromas towards the end of your glass.”

It is an excellent beer to marinate fish or meat in it. Richer meat dishes, or heavy pasta dishes where the light sourness of the beer is looked for to offset the sweetness of the sauce.

Alcohol by volume: 5.5%

Monks Cafe Flemish Sour Ale: Red & Brown Ale
“As Belgian beer lovers, you certainly know about the famous restaurant-bar in Philadelphia with the name Monk’s Café. This restaurant is known all over the USA as one of the best places to find an extensive selection of Belgian beers, and also great food cooked in Belgian beer. The owner Tom Peters is one of the many people who fell in love years ago with Belgian beer, and one of the few who had the passion and tenacity to learn all about it.

In 2002 he finally had the opportunity, and the courage to convince the Van Steenberge brewery to bottle its famous ‘BIOS – Vlaamse Bourgogne’ under private label for him. The Flemish Burgundy of the Van Steenberge brewery is an old brown in style, aged in oak, and is one of the oldest brews made by the brewery, at least brewed for over 300 years. Tom Peters knew the beer long since, but always had trouble finding some bottles, even in Belgium. Indeed, the beer is only brewed once a year. A final tasting of a whole line of Belgian Old Browns in the Brugs Beertje bar (Brugge) tilted the decision: this is the best old brown ale in the world! And Tom went to the brewery to see Mr. Paul Van Steenberge and Mr. Jef Versele, the owners of the brewery.

Well the rest is history, as they say, but we at the Global Beer Network are very honored to be able to import this fabulous, exceptional Belgian beer in the USA.”

Great with Asian, spicy Mexican and even salads!

Alcohol by volume: 5.5%

Petrus Aged Pale Ale: Red & Brown Ale
Aged? Many beers have a long maturation, but this one has only 24-30 months in oak barrels.
Pale? This beer has an old gold to bronze color, rather than the burgundy more common in the breweries of West Flanders. This is the ‘mother beer,’ used in various quantities to blend with the other Petrus beers, and to give them their unique and very distinctive taste. This mother beer is rather sour with a bite like the best Brut Champagnes. A connoisseur’s delight! The only one of its kind on the U.S. market.”

Smoked, pickled or marinated fish (trout, herrings, sardines). Shellfish. Squid.

Alcohol by volume: 7.3%

Format: 6 Pack – 2 of each type
Seasonality: Year Round
