Stone 2nd Annual Sour Fest Is Today

I'm not too sure how or why I missed it last year but I've been waiting for this for quite some time. It runs from 11am-9pm, seemingly plenty of time to sample all the sour beers we'll want. But as opposed to their anniversary parties, I think money, not time, will be the limiting resource here. With our $30 sour pass we get 10 tickets. The "rarer" beers will take 2 tickets. You can buy extra tastes at rates of $6 (2 tickets) or $3 (regular 1 ticket). I may go as high as purchasing $60 worth of tasters, but that would only be 20 tickets and I'm guessing plenty will be rare. I will feel lucky if I can sample 12-14 beers for that $60. That's pretty steep though, but I guess the price for these rare treats.

This list is as follows, the ones in red are high priority for me to try:
