Only sour beer served at this brewery and the few I tried were all quite solid. I don't think they have enough sour choices at breweries so one that is only focused on sours makes my day. The atmosphere is relaxed and welcoming as well....More

If you like sours, this is the place for you. The variety of the sours is awesome. For $15 you get a glass to take home and can fill it 4 times. Great deal!

Loved the atmosphere and the tasting setup. You choose your size glass and buy it with 4 fills to get your tasting vs having to buy each individual which is a great concept. I’m not the biggest sour beer fan so not the best judge...More

I'm not really a big beer lover, but sours are the one category I consistently enjoy, so I was excited when I found Blue Owl. Whereas many of the sours I've had have been of the Belgian variety, Blue Owl was unique (at least to...More
