Engine House No. 9 presents Sour Fest this Saturday in Tacoma


Engine House No. 9 hosts its annual Sour Fest this Saturday, October 12th at the firehouse, the original E9 location on Pine Street, just off 6th Avenue in Tacoma. Engine House No. 9 is partnering with over a dozen breweries to offer up 20 sour ales, from fruited lambics to barrel-aged goses. Available for this one day only.

“What’s so special about sour ales, you ask? The term “sour” doesn’t necessarily refer to the flavor of the beer; rather, it reflects the brewing process Like sourdough bread or kombucha, sour ales are brewed with wild bacteria and yeast, which leads to an array of flavors and aromas not found in traditional ales or lagers.”

“Our Sour Fest guest breweries are truly exceptional at what they do. This year’s selection of sour beers are all one-of-a-kind, with complex flavor profiles that you’ll love.”
