Tuesday Tastings: Gosepalooza!

If the title of this week’s Tuesday Tastings post isn’t entirely clear, I’m focusing entirely on Gose beers this week. They are a great hot weather beer, light and tart and refreshing. (Incidentally, I want to use “Gosepalooza” as the name of an all-Gose beer fest…) Anderson Valley Brewing The Kimmie, The Yink, & The Holy Gose Anderson Valley released the first Gose that I’ve seen in a can, available during the summer months as … Continue reading →

Weekend in review: Corvallis (again), Goses, and botanicals

Widmer Marionberry Hibiscus Gose

From the Widmer 4-pack I received the other day comes the beautiful Marionberry Hibiscus Gose, Widmer’s latest entry into their 924 Series of specialty beers and one that I’ve had before, at the Oregon Garden Brewfest. At that time, I wrote: …the beer was fantastic. I wrote, “Ok, love this beer—berry is subtle as is the coriander and salt—super drinkable, lovely tart character where the berries come back out of it at the end—like eating … Continue reading →

Block 15 Corvallis Half Marathon Gose

One of the side effects of visiting Block 15 Brewery last month in Corvallis (as with many breweries we visit) is that I brought back a couple of growlers of their beer: the Corvallis ½ Marathon Gose and the Aboriginale. And I’m needing to start catching up on beer reviews (I have a lot backlogged!) so the growlers are  good place to start. Unfortunately you won’t find this on tap right now (though I wouldn’t be … Continue reading →
