Blue Owl Brewery

Posted by

I just wanted to write a quick note about Blue Owl Brewery.  I’ve tried their beers a few times in the past few months, and I’ve been very impressed.  I’m quite jealous of Austin for this one!

The first that I tried was Professor Black, a sour cherry stout.  I think this was the first time that I had ever tried a sour stout, and it was unique.  The flavor was mostly chocolate and very tart cherries. I will definitely drink more of this if I can get my hands on it.

The second was Van Dayum! which is sour red ale.  This one wasn’t as unique but it was just a solid sour.  It had some light fruity flavors to go along with the tartness and was light and easy to drink.

Finally, I tried Wee Beastie yesterday afternoon.  This is their attempt at a sour scotch ale.  I think it is my favorite out of these 3.  The beer is sweet and sour at the same time with a bit of smokiness.

I’m really enjoying what they are doing here with excellent sour versions of all different styles of beer.  Looking at their website, I see that they have a sour IPA as well called Hop Totem which I would love to try.  Next time I get to Austin, this will be a must visit destination for me.
