Bury the smile in your ass is a beautiful Finnish phrase that warns of the dangers of excessive happiness. We at the Flying Dutchman Nomad Brewing Company frown upon such advice and encourage broad smiles. Even if there's shit on the marble. Can you keep your lips relaxed while the beer is so sour it hurts your gums and makes you feel like you're eating fresh rowanberries, bilberries, and cranberries? Remember this is a positive pain and keep grinning like crazy. If we go back down with another Finnish expression, we're sure you know what the fox said about the rowan berries. That's right. Acid.

Style description: What exactly is a Sour?

Hundreds of years ago, all beers had a sour taste. There was no hygiene then as we know it today, nor was there any knowledge about the fermentation process. When we got the hang of all that a bit and pure yeast strains were also developed, the quality of the beer became better and the sour taste was no longer part of the character of beer.

Now “sour” beers are on the rise again because they taste so nice and fresh. The brewers add lactic acid bacteria (Lactobacillus), the same bacterial cultures that are also used in yogurt preparation. The beer is therefore slightly soured and often fruit is also added to make it a little fresher.

We discovered the lactic acid bacteria used by The Flying Dutchman in sourdough bread starters in Finland. Finland has an old sourdough tradition that is passed down from generation to generation. We found a lactic acid bacteria in one of these sourdoughs that goes very well with our sour beers. Very unique to capture this piece of history in our beers!
