On this week’s episode of Beards, Booze, and Bacon: The Manual Podcast, the round-table — managing editor Nicole Raney, food and drink editor Sam Slaughter, and the inimitable host, Greg Nibler — is joined by the director of brewery operations for Portland’s Cascade Brewing, Kevin Martin.
To understand how to enjoy a sour beer, we first had to figure out what exactly a sour beer is. As it turns out, there’s more to it than just a sour taste in the mouth. Martin brews up a mash tun full of knowledge on what makes a sour beer a sour beer (and how to identify a bad sour beer) before digging into why Cascade has become recognized the world over for its sour beer program.
