We’re thrilled to announce the fourth iteration of the Pastry Ale series is on its way!
WHAT’S A PASTRY ALE?
The beers in the Pastry Ale series are inspired by our Gose ale, a sour style beer. Our traditional Gose is tart and fruity with refreshing, bright flavors that compliment the sour kick you get with each sip. The tartness comes mostly from Sour Patch Kids (not really), but also from Sour Pitch, a lactic acid bacteria we add in the kettle, which brings characteristics not just of tartness, but also citrus and green apple.
We started fruiting our Gose during fermentation to highlight its tart and sometimes sweet fruit flavors. The Gose’s low pH creates a crisper, sharper flavor than other styles, which in combination with low bitterness and unique tartness, lend this style well to fruit additions.
HAVEN’T I SEEN THIS BEFORE?
We released the Wildberry Milkshake Sour in February, the Mango Milkshake Sour in April, and the Pineapple Upside Down Sour in June with the same can design. We update the design colors with each new recipe so you can keep your Untappd checkins all sorted out.
OFFICIAL BEER DESCRIPTION:
Our tart Gose brewed with loads of blackberries, black currants, and raspberries. This iteration was brewed with members of the Brewing Change Collaborative, a non-profit whose mission is to foster diversity, equity, and inclusion for people of color in the brewing industry through advocacy, outreach and education. 5.5% ABV // 20 IBUs
WHERE CAN I BUY IT?
This one is available on tap first at our Minneapolis taproom on Friday August 30 (we’re also donating $1 for every beer sold all day to the Brewing Change Collaborative).
We’re keeping these can releases extremely limited, which means you have to stay on your toes if you want to get your mitts on a 4-pack. The full list of locations to purchase cans will be available on our Instagram stories and Twitter feed in the coming weeks. We’ll also update this post with locations.
