If you happened upon today’s New York Times, you saw none other than our head bartender on the front of the food section! What’s the news that’s fit to print? Gose! It’s a great summertime brew and we’re happy to be featured in the Times as a go-to place to find Gose beers. Made from an ancient German style of beer, these somewhat sour, often salty beers pair well with food and are going to be featured for the rest of the summer in both bottles/cans and on draught. Our rotating line-up will include (while supplies last):
- Ritterguts Gose
- Sixpoint’s Jammer
- The Pineus Gose from Gasthaus & Gosebrauerei Bayerischer Bahnhof (just ask for the “Goose Penis”)
- Westbrook’s Gose
- Hitachino Nest’s Anbai Ale from Kiuchi Brewery (careful with this one; unlike most Gose beers, it has a higher ABV of 7.0%)
- Freigeist Rhubarb Gose
- Leipziger Gose
- Off Color’s Troublesome
On Tuesday, August 11th, we’ll be pairing some of these Gose beers with a special family-style dinner (both meat and vegetarian options) from Tito King’s Kitchen at Jimmy’s No. 43 co-hosted with friends from Shelton Brothers (pictured above). You can get tickets to this beer pairing dinner here, and you’ll learn all about this great beer, its origins and how to pair with various dishes.
And stay tuned: We’ll have Summer of Gose T-shirts on sale soon!
