When I was talking about "fruited sours", I was referring specifically to a beer like this one:

https://untappd.com/b/cushwa-brewing-company-western-maryland-vacation-packages/4504229

A mango coconut bread pudding sour

...which, by the way, is an awesome beer.

ah, gotcha.  yeah, those "milkshake sours"/"smoothie sours" have a bad rep. 

i haven't come across many of them that are particularly good.

rant: the pandemic has resulted in a lot of changes at my local grocery store.  on the beer front, they've actually improved the freshness of regional brands (Fremont, Georgetown, Reuben's, etc.) but they've cut back to core brands - fewer seasonals, one-offs, etc.  while that's a mild annoyance for me most of the year, it's a big issue right now: it's fresh-hop/wet-hop beer season and not one damn fresh-hop beer was on offer.  i was shopping this morning and there were two distributors stocking the beer aisle so i ask them if any was coming in, and they confirmed that my store is stocking fewer SKUs so no fresh-hopped beer was scheduled to be delivered.  luckily the beer buyer came along just as i was chatting with them, and put in a small order on my behalf.  97.3% that other local beer nerds are going to snatch it up before i make it back there.

(background: my local grocery store stocks an excellent assortment of beer, to the point that it generally isn't worth my time to drive 25-30 minutes to the closest bottle shop... at least, that was the case pre-panda).

who the hell pregames before a beer fest??

solid list, and i didn't even make it to the end.  both Alesong offerings are recommended by yours truly, and i'd love to try a wild ale by Arizona Wilderness.  never heard of Uberon, but good name :)

I'll give it well above solid, but we'll see. Isn't Uberon the bourbon barrel aged wheat ale from Bells? Hard pass on that one, or anything from Bells.

Fidens, Floodland, Saint Adairus, Fox Farm, Homes, and Widowaker top the list of breweries I haven't had but am most looking forward to trying. There's probably aboout 25 others that are on my list as well though no doubt we won't try them all in just four hours (with VIP ticketholders having a two hour head start on the field.)

Try some Mortalis beers. They'll change your mind.

first off, thank you for spelling "aboout" in Canadian.

second, if anyone needs help prioritizing what to taste:

Looks like Dominion got a drop yesterday that included Alesong (first time in VA) and Mortalis (second time in VA). I'll be shopping for the next few minutes. Not sure what's left.
