The 2020 Edition of Sourpalooza will be happening on Saturday, November 7th.
For this very special edition, due to COVID-19 restrictions, we will be bringing the festival into your home by offering a Virtual Sour Tasting Package – including carefully curated and exclusive sour beers from The Exchange Brewery and all the other participating breweries.
The Exchange Brewery is Niagara-on-the-Lake’s premium brewery and tasting room located in Old Town heritage district. We focus on making exceptional craft beers using only the highest quality ingredients, including local Niagara fruits. Our selection includes a range of American styles along with sour and funky Belgian-style ales.
Located in the heart of downtown Hamilton at 107 James Street North, MERIT Brewing is a brewery, kitchen, and bottle shop. Guided by a team of ambitious friends, MERIT strives to represent the heart, art, and soul of Hamilton in every beer, every bite, and every experience.

Blood Brothers Brewing is a family owned craft brewery opened in 2015 by Dustin and Brayden Jones in Toronto, Ontario. “From its humble beginnings, Blood Brothers has been centered around brewing interesting beers our friends and family would want to drink. From the way we source our ingredients to our methodical brewing process, we approach each step with passion and independent spirit. Our goal is to provide innovative beers to all of our customers. We strive to push back against consolidation and uniformity in today’s beer market.”
Indie Alehouse’s mission is to inspire people to Live Indie. Whether it’s identifying with a certain unique style of beer, or if it’s supporting local and high-quality goods, our mantra is rooted in the fact that we encourage exploration and choice for everyone, particularly those who like to innovate and diverge from the mainstream masses.
SFBC is a small, independently owned homebrew shop and craft brewery in Kitchener, ON. We are beer centred and totally DIY. Life is short. Homebrew. “Started out of a basement in Waterloo in 2015, we’ve expanded a few times over the years and are now operating out of the main unit at 20 Hurst Avenue in Kitchener. On the homebrew side, we aim to provide brewers in the Tri-Cities (and beyond!) with all of the ingredients, equipment, and education needed for quality homebrewing. In the brewery, we specialize in barrel-aged, blended sour beers and low ABV hoppy offerings. In all things, we are beer focused and totally DIY. Our tasting room is still to come.”
