Crane for sure but I also really enjoyed the sours I have had by torn label as well.

Can't say anything bad about Crane, it's their business and if they want to stay slow until they get around and see what's out there to gauge the self that's their business. They could have released the Kumquat Weisse bottles but they weren't up to standard, that's a lot of money lost, they probably got them transferred to kegs but high charachter decision on their part. Too many breweries release beer whether it's good or not. They weren't exactly beer nerds before they got into brewing, just educated people playing with it. When they take off they will hit the ground running.

McCoy's doesn't belong. They messed up the Brown Ale once and local drinker (House) gave them like 150lbs of blackberries and they poured 6 bottles of Cantillon Kriek in the barrel. Have they done anything else since?

I included McCoy's because of Blackberry Tart, which I flat-out loved, but they actually have 4 other Sours in the Ratebeer database:


McCoys Big Woody
McCoys Duchess of Westport
McCoys MO Sour Bruin
McCoys Sour Belgian Brown
