About a month and a half ago, I was taking a trip down to South Carolina and James asked me to pick up a case of Westbrook’s Gose. Before then I had never heard of a gose (pronounced “go-zuh”), which is a German-style wheat beer that is brewed with coriander and it’s distinguishing factor, salt. However, this ancient German style is making quite the comeback in the craft beer industry. Gose’s have become quite popular with a lot of breweries producing their own versions. Anderson Valley has come out with their “The Kimmy, The Yink, and the Holy Gose” as part of their Highway 128 series, which has become a popular sale. Recently we had Off Color Brewing’s, “Troublesome”. Now people are constantly asking for gose or sour style beers, which compliment the season perfectly. I immediately fell in love with this low alcohol, tart and sour wheat beer. Salt is not a typical component of beer, but it compliments this refreshing summer beer delightfully. Try one of these interesting session beers for yourself and see what this recent trend is all about.
