Sour Beer Symposium: Asheville

We had a packed house Thursday, May 2, at the --as yet to be opened--Top of the Monk with about 60 attendees and some of our North Carolina team, as well as Sensory Specialist, Lauren Salazar from Fort Collins.  Here's a fun interview with Lauren, that will give you a taste of the Sour Beer Symposium: Asheville...well, without the beer and experimenting to make your own sour beer! Hope to see you next time!  Special thanks to The Thirsty Monk and their great team!

Lauren Salazar, Sensory Specialist + Trey Wheeler, Asheville Beer Ranger

Lauren Salazar talks about sour beer as if they are her own children, giving them names and discussing each barrel's personality.  Trey Wheeler, event organizer and New Belgium Beer Ranger, is often seen about Asheville and lives in here with his family.
