American sour beer may very well be the fastest growing segment in the craft beer renaissance. Any brewery that is worth its weight in wort and wishes to remain relevant has a sour program.
First released in mid-2012, Yogi Spiced Amber is a 5.2 percent ABV amber ale that is brewed with Saigon cinnamon, clove, ginger, cardamom, and black pepper. The beer is meant to remind drinkers of chai, and was created by co-owner Diane Rogness who owns the Pflugerville, Texas-based brewery with her husband, Forrest. Rogness Brewing Co. opened in March 2012, and now distributes to Austin, Dallas, Fort Worth, Houston, San Antonio and Waco.
