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

This is a bit of a late writeup as the past weekend grows more distant, but it turns out we hit a lot of breweries and drank a lot of beer last weekend! On Saturday we visited Corvallis, my wife and I and our friends Paul and Sandi, and ended up stopping at six(!) places for the day before coming back home that evening. Sunday you’d think would be mellower but I ended up with … Continue reading →

Deschutes Brewery Gose tasting

I’ve been fascinated with the Gose style of beer for awhile (like many beer geeks these days, of course) and seek it out whenever I can, so I was thrilled when Deschutes Brewery‘s Veronica Vega told me awhile back that she was attempting a Gose.

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 →

Summer Beer Week: Leipziger Gose

Here’s a Summer Beer Week curve ball you may not have thought of: a German Gose style of beer. Gose is a light, tart wheat ale spiced with coriander and salt, and is enjoying a small revival with some American craft brewers lately. I didn’t get a hold of any of those, but I was thrilled to find Leipziger Gose at my local Whole Foods, imported from Germany—the first Gose I’ve seen in Bend and … Continue reading →
