In this beer blog, we are going to get into another beer from Uinta Brewery. The beer is their Birthday Beer, which is their 20th and it is called Birthday Suit Sour Brown Ale from their Crooked Line. If you read my earlier beer blog on their beers, you know the history of this brewery. If you have not, please, read the first part of those beer blogs. Let us get into the beer.
It has a clear brown color without a head on the beer. The smell is like sour air. The taste has a heavy sour with a sour aftertaste. It is a nice sipping beer to have anytime of the season.
Here is a description from the beer bottle:
Brewed in celebration of Uinta’s 20th Birthday, this American Sour Brown Ale flaunts significant acidity balanced by flavorful Abbey and Chocolate malts and a modest amount of hops. A distinct tartness on the palate combines with notes of toffee and earthiness.

In closing, I enjoyed drinking this beer and I am in love with sour ales. This beer was right up my alley but the average beer drinker will not like sour ales. This beer is for the experience craft beer drinker. I am not saying that the beginner will not like this beer. It is possible. It has a heavy sour taste and smell. It is pretty drinkable beer for any season of the year. I highly recommend this beer. It is a limited release so if you do not get it this season. You will have to wait for next year and that is not a bad thing. I also want to thank for the Brewery for letting me try this beer and showing me around the brewery. Thanks Steve and Uinta Brewing! Go get some! Drink it! Enjoy it! Metal it! \m/
