That spark for what would eventually evolve into the Discord Beer Company happened back in 2013/14 when we started experimenting with IPA yeast, kettle souring, and dry-hopping in Seattle, Washington. We would eventually release a dry-hopped sour IPA, which was in line with what a select few other breweries who were at the forefront of this first wave of sour hopped ales where doing.
It's difficult to comprehend given today’s brewing climate, just how ambitious and laborious such an endeavor was. Yeast culture wasn't what it is today, order times were long, choices were quite a bit thinner and to be honest, quality, especially when purchasing for kettle sourcing was iffy, but, with necessity consistently being the mother of invention we explored alternative methods of fermentation to sour these unique creations.
At Discord’s core is a desire to have fun and remember exactly what we do for a living. This beer is not meant to be saved for a rainy day. We are the coalescence of sour, hoppy and sweet. We are Discord
