Sounds like a denny and drew question. I think it is a good idea.

Are there really more questions here about sour beers than hoppy beers?

A dedicated area might get more participation from Tonsmierre or Yakobson... or both.

I had a great Berliner Weisse last night from my daughter - it was called Athena, a really good beer from Creature Comforts Brewing Company in Athens, Ga.  It inspired the question.

nah, we don't need a whole other section for it. we've got good general sections. talk all you want about sours and those that are interested will find it. and those that think they aren't might find it too instead of just skipping that 'yucky sour' section.

Agreed. I read everything, so to me the whole forum is sours. Or IPAs, or...

Yes I find this subject of some interest. Especially on a sour Braggot. Anyone got any experience with these?
