Sorry to butt in here but I thought this was going to be about me. Since I'm here, any suggestions for a sour beer. One that is available in Chicago.
While I was at Ipsento 606 they told me about Cafe Integral. They have a location in Chicago and NYC, haven't been to either.  Too bad about Voyager, I had high hopes Have been to Box Kite half a dozen times and the espresso was different every time.

All on an off white/cream ground. 6/7 ounce with amazing body from the weaving. The green was a perfect soft shade of green and my favorite of the three.
