Tuesday Tastings: Gosepalooza III!

If I keep drinking Goses—and I am!—then I’m going to keep writing Gosepalooza reviews! This Tuesday Tastings features three more Goses I’ve had the pleasure of drinking recently. Anderson Valley Briny Melon Gose This is the third Gose in Anderson Valley’s repertoire, coming in at 4.2% alcohol by volume. I’m a big fan of the previous two, so picking up this one was a no-brainer. They say: Born from our passion for experimentation, our Briney … Continue reading →

Tuesday Tastings: Gosepalooza!

Indeed, Three Creeks is … Continue reading →

Cream Ale Week: Summer Solstice Cerveza Crema

It would be hard to talk about Cream Ales on the West Coast and not mention Anderson Valley’s Summer Solstice Cerveza Crema. It’s a Cream Ale that actually achieves a creamy flavor (and aroma)—though it’s through the addition of a mystery spice. So it’s sort of a hybrid of a hybrid style… No matter—this is still one very tasty beer that I find enjoyable to drink. It’s 5.6% alcohol by volume and only 4 IBUs … Continue reading →
