If you read the most recent issue of CRUSH Magazine then you saw that it featured interviews with some of the local brew masters in SWFL. Among those interviews was Momentum Brewhouse's Brian Hahn. Brian gave very insightful answers to the questions asked but he hit the nail on the head with his response to "Next Style Trend?" Most other brewers responded with something along the lines of "If I knew that, I'd be rich/brewing it now." Brian, and I agree with him, says that sour beers are on the up and up across the country. IPA's are still the king of beers at the moment but I have noticed a steady incline in the supply and demand of sour beers.
Brian, and his Head Brewer Tom Gambino, are getting ahead of that curve here in Southwest Florida. They have been brewing a Berliner Weisse called "The Machinist" since June 2016 as a small batch offered occasionally. The Machinist grew a large following so quickly that by January 2017 it was given a permanent home on the tap list at Momentum Brewhouse.
