Drekker’s Brain Squeeze Series kicks ass, and those of you who’ve been lucky enough to grab a taste know it. It’s one of the highest rated Sour series we’ve ever had! In fact, the last version earned a massive 4.54 rating on Tavour!
So when we heard they were dropping today’s Cherry/Peach/Guava Brain Squeeze, we hightailed it out to Fargo, North Dakota to snag as many cases of this sweet-tart Sour Ale as the brewers would allow!
If you want a taste, you better act fast, because new releases from these World Beer Cup Gold Medalists are bound to sell out quick.
In fact, we couldn’t get nearly as much of today’s brew as we would have liked, because these one-off Brain Squeeze Sours are super limited. The few cases we have represent the only stash leaving the upper Midwest.
Drekker’s taproom is enormous — it’s housed in a massive former locomotive repair building and they call it Brewhala — but it still gets packed with locals for release days. And they have to jostle with craft fiends from all over the Midwest who regularly drive 4+ hours for new brews.
But they know it’s worth it, because every sip of Brain Squeeze is like a tropical mini-vacation in a glass.
And even if you don’t live someplace that gets a frigid as Fargo, you could probably use a little escape yourself! Open a can of Cherry/Peach/Guava and you’ll practically be able to hear the rustling palm trees and smell the sweet island breeze.
