So, when you go to the pub or to the bottle shop, ask them for your favorite Sour Beer and tell them it's for Sour Beer Day. I may open up my Drie Fonteinen Oude Geuze. Perhaps it's time to crack open the Trinity or New Belgium bottle you've been holding on to? If you're in Colorado, this may be a good excuse to visit Crooked Stave's brand new barrel-cellar-taproom in Denver! I'm not sure all the rules here but I imagine that this day includes any sort of tart Wild Ale or Brett Beer, even though technically those aren't sours, people still like to lump them altogether for now.

Here's a quick note about Sour Beer Day from the San Diego Reader:
After all, the establishment of Sour Beer Day would not only raise peoples’ craft beer consciousness the way IPA Day and Stout Day have, but also—through the support of bars, restaurants, and breweries willing to make available special offerings for this one-day event—provide the opportunity for sour beer fanatics and first-timers alike to get a glass of something tart, tasty, and harder to come by. If nothing else, it would further extend the craft beer camaraderie that makes the aforementioned beer-oriented days truly special.- - -
