Bend Brewing hosts 2nd annual Sour Fest and releases Razztafari Sour Ale in 16oz Cans

Bend Brewing Company will host their 2nd annual Sour Fest on Saturday, May 18th and is also releasing Razztafari Sour Ale in 16oz cans.

More from a press release:

Razztafari begins as a traditional Berliner-weisse that is kettle soured with BBC’s unique house lactobacillus culture. Lemon zest is added in the whirlpool before massive amounts of raspberry puree are added to the fermenter. The resulting beer pours bright red with the aroma of raspberry pie filling and notes of lemon. Sweet, tart and refreshing at the same time, Razztafari is the perfect complement to a lazy summer day. Available now in Oregon through Bigfoot Beverages and Running Man
Distribution and in Colorado from Colorado Craft Distributors.

Bend Brewing Co. will host their 2nd annual Sour Fest on Saturday, May 18th, 2019 from noon to 7pm. Sour Fest tasting packages start at $12 for a souvenir stemmed glass and 2 tokens or $23 for a souvenir stemmed glass and 6 tokens. Tokens are good for a 6oz pour or a full pour for 2 tokens.
