Sierra Nevada Otra Vez Gose Ale 12oz
When looking for a drink to quench your thirst on a summer's day, a touch of tartness can be just the thing. Before the modern era of beer making, European brewers discovered that by handling malt in a specific way, they could produce a slightly acidic wort which leads to bright, tart flavors, very different from what we expect in most styles of beer. Inspired by these historic beers, we looked to create our own take on the German gose beer style. We add lactobacillus culture to unfermented beer (i.e. "wort"), which in turn creates a mildly acidic flavor-the same way sourdough bread gets its tang. It's a small amount, but it carries through and adds a pop of tartness and complexity for an incredibly refreshing beer.
