Pucker up for MobCraft Beer’s 6th Annual Sour Fest on March 30th

MobCraft Beer Sour FEst

MobCraft Beer is hosting their sixth annual Sour Fest on Saturday, March 30, 2023 from 12pm-7pm in the taproom and brewery located at 505 5th Street in Milwaukee. Sour Fest is a hybrid combination of a taproom party, traditional beer fest and pop up bottle shop with the focus on all of the great Sour Beers Wisconsin has to offer. The taproom will be free and open to the public from 11:00am-11:00pm with Wild & Sour beer taking over the majority of MobCraft Beer draft lines.

  • Admission to the taproom is free and open to the public with over 20 Wild & Sour beers on draft. 
  • Sour Fest features the Wisconsin Wild and Sour Sampling Sessions that will highlight some of the best Wild & Sour beer our state has to offer from 12 Wisconsin craft breweries. Each sampling session includes unlimited samples and a commemorative tasting glass. Sessions include:
    • The VIP session, which allows early access to the tastings, runs from 12:00pm-3:00pm. Tickets are $65 each. VIP ticket holders also get access to the bottle shop before the general public. 
    • General admission sessions run from 1:00pm-3:00pm and 4:00pm-6:00pm. Tickets for both GA sessions are $50. 
    • Tickets for all tasting sessions can be purchased here. Interested Patrons are encouraged to get their tickets soon as the WI sampling sessions are expected to sell out due to the limited space of the brewery. 
  • Wild and Sour beers from MobCraft and all guest breweries will be available for purchase in the pop-up bottle shop open to the public.
  • Not a Sour beer fan? MobCraft has you covered with select non-sour beers, seltzers and N/A options available throughout the day. 

MobCraft Founder and CEO Henry Schwartz says, “Sour Fest has become one of the beer fests we most look forward to hosting. Not only do we get to show off our deep Wild & Sour beer portfolio, but we are able to get together with so many of our brewery pals to showcase these styles of beer that we all love so much. This year’s lineup welcomes back many breweries from past Sour Fests as well as a few first timers. This year’s sour beer lineup is phenomenal whether you’re a Sour beer aficionado or just getting into the style.”

Elise Strupp, MobCraft’s Events Manager, adds, “The Wild and Sour Sampling Sessions offer a really specialized beer fest experience focused on all of the best wild and sour beers Milwaukee has to offer.  MobCraft is known for our sour program, and the Wild and Sour Sampling Sessions allow us to show off what we do best while showcasing other breweries who sour lovers may be less familiar with from all over the state.”

In addition to MobCraft, other participating breweries in the Wisconsin Wild & Sour sampling sessions include:

Along with MobCraft’s annual and seasonal Wild & Sour releases, Sour Fest also marks the release of Sour Golden Ale Cherry – oak aged Sour Golden Ale fermented with Saccharomyces and Brettanomyces, Lactobacillus and Pediococcus and blended using a solera method refermented on cherries. 6.2% ABV. Sour Golden Ale Cherry will be available on draft and cans to go. 

MobCraft also has a few special sour surprises up their sleeves. Stay tuned to Instagram and Facebook for all Sour Fest beer updates.
