Long term sours are a passion for us here at Thin Man Brewery and we are very excited to be relaunching Hustler of Culture. Somewhere in the wheelhouse of Flanders Red & Oud Bruin, Hustler is an oak aged amber sour ale with notes of tart cherry and dark honey.
The second beer to feature our house souring culture, Hustler starts it’s life as a dark Saison. Once primary fermentation is complete we add our house blend of Brett, Lacto and Pedio & let them go to town. 5 or so months later Hustler emerges. Perfect paired with nutty cheeses, rich foods or just by itself, Hustler is a respectful nod to both the classic sour beers of the Flanders region of Belgium and the ingenuity of America’s craft beer revolution.
