Two Sori Brewing beers hit TCBW 2019 Top 10 List

Sori & TCBW 2019

Annual craft beer super event in our home town, Tallinn. Organized by our friends from Põhjala, we have been privileged to be invited annually starting from the very first edition. It also happens around our birthday every year, so we celebrate it by releasing some of our most loved barrel-ages and funky beers.

Every year we work hard to impress our audience and so did we this year as well. Resulting that we were the only Estonian brewery hit top lists in this TCBW both days (and with two beers on the day 2), which stunned us completely. See header picture for reference.

Again, big thanks to organizers for such beautiful and well executed event. Tallinn has become a hub for craft beer culture and talented breweries.

This year we killed it with four themes: anniversary barrel-ages, collaborations, supermassive bourbon barrel-ages, and yes, real funky sours!

Let us introduce you our newest releases, some of which are rare editions. The Top 3 beers from this weekend were Lost Room (Bourbon BA) (Untappd 4,12/5,00 points), Shadow Game 1 (Untappd 4,15) and Shadow Game 2 (Untappd 4,20).

Sori brewery is located in an old Soviet military factory. Deep in the building lies locked rooms that remained untouched, one of which is scarier than others. In that room, we came up with the idea of this Imperial Baltic Porter with our friends from Voodoo Brewing (PA, USA). Brewed with loads of caramel and Estonian kama flour.
