Brooklyn Brewery Bel Air Sour is Here to Stay

Initially a limited release in The Brooklyn Brewery’s Brewmaster Reserve Series, Bel Air Sour won the hearts of many. The short production run of Bel Air Sour had consumers demanding for more. Well, The Brooklyn Brewery has delivered. Brooklyn Bel Air Sour has returned and is here to stay as a year-round offering in The Brooklyn Brewery’s award winning portfolio.


Brooklyn Bel Air Sour is full of surprises. Lead by The Brooklyn Brewery’s James Beard Award-winning Brewmaster, Garrett Oliver, their brewers put their collective minds together to conjure up one tasty magic trick—a thrilling jolt of tartness up front opens onto a riot of tropical fruit, courtesy of lacto, ale yeast, and a generous helping of Amarillo dry-hopping. Soft barley and wheat malts keep things dry and refreshing, and the whole thing comes together to close with a fine dry finish. Brooklyn Bel Air Sour is racy and maybe even a little bit dangerous, but also effortlessly cool, breezy, and undeniably compelling. Party tartly.
