Best BN show! - 3 stars

Opening a brewery in a couple months (in Ellijay Ga{shameless plug}) and this show has been such a valuable resource for figuring out how to (hopefully) do right by my favorite beer style. I’m on ep 34, but I also listen to new episodes as they get posted. This show is much better than any other BN show, especially the Session.

3/5 stars!

Just started, way behind, but LOVE IT!!

As my title says, I’ve just started listening to this podcast. I learned of it about 6-months ago but just started listening 2-weeks ago and I’m through Episode 8 (311 Day, BTW, as if I needed anymore reassurance that this podcast is legit...) I love it. I’ve been drinking sour beer since 2010, started with Consecration, and have been hooked since. I’m going to get through all of these episodes and keep listening into the future. Keep it up!

Sweet nectar for the ears!

After years of listening to almost every brewing podcast out there like the Session, which must get their name from being weak and pale, the Sour Hour takes the cake. Not only does Jay provide knowledgeable and thorough experience to help you with your own sour program. Jay, Scottt, and sometimes Beevo always provide a hilarious and funny platform that anybody can enjoy. I will always recommend to any brewer, sour or clean, to listen to the Sour Hour! Keep up the great work guys!

Song recommendation: New Noise by Refused.

Expect some beers soon!
