    Are there any Gose brewed here in America or imported here besides Sam Adams "Gose"?

    I had Döllnitzer Ritterguts Gose today at Jester King and it was awesome. If anyone can get ahold of it, I am definitely ISO.

    Westbrook makes a fine Gose. More tart than most other examples of the style.

    you could also try a Gasthaus & Gosebrauerei Leipziger Gose if you can get your hands on it

    Choc does a good one, Golden City Brewery makes an excellent Gose. High Fidelity Brewing Co that was at Brewery Incubator in Houston a few weeks ago made one that was excellent as well. I hope they open within the next year or so.

    I had Westbrook Gose for the first time earlier today, and I was blown away. I have never had a Gose before,so I cant compare to style, but I absolutely loved it. Incredible combination of sour, salt, and wheat sweetness.

    Upright made one a couple years ago. It was very subtle. I believe Cascade makes some seasonal ones too.

    The Bruery made one called Salt of the Earth as part of its Provisions Series in 2011.

    Another vote for Westbrook. I thought it was great. Haven't had the recent batch but I look forward to it.

    Upright, Cascade, Block 15... I'm sure I'm forgetting a couple. Block 15's Lemon Gose is fantastic!

    Edit: Just noticed some folks beat me to the punch on Upright and Cascade. To provide a little more detail, Cascade makes different variations for different seasons while Upright puts theirs out once a year (it actually just came out and is on shelves now around PDX.

    More everything than any authentic example of the style.

    Rapp brewing makes a good version of the style

    Sure, about 30 or 40 in different parts of the US.

    Find it ironic that they copied DFH's name but have sued when other regional breweries have done some similar (not a direct copy).


    Apologies for thread jack.... Just scored a couple of the Choc, looking forward to trying it. Wasn't impressed by the Magic hat but great to see them try it, same with SA although it wasn't great.

    The Bruery's version was great as I recall it but was the first I'd every tried.

    Thanks. There aren't any sold around here in Houston. That's why I was asking, smart guy.

    Look for Lost Nation Gose out of Morrisville, VT. Kegging first batch this coming week, will be poured at The Farmhouse in Burlington, VT on Wednesday. I tasted it from the wort on through, very nice. Their first beer, with 5 more styles to follow in the coming weeks. If anyone was at VT Brewers Fest last July and sampled the Magic Hat/Trapp Lager collab Gose, you will know that it was one of the shining stars of the event.

    Ahhh, why didn't you say so in the first place? Then you may want to ask in the trading forum where folks should be able to find you some others to trade for even if they don't have access to the one you tried and recommended trying in your OP.

    Westbrooks Gose just hit the shelves here. If anyone is interested, I'd be willing to set up a trade.

    Bube's Gose was very nice and should re-appear soon. Enjoy on draft in their excellent biergarten.

    Cascade's Summer Gose is one of my favorite beers. Absolutely awesome.

    Widmer has a Hibiscus Gose out right now, haven't tried it, though.

    I concur, Westbrook Gose is fantabulous. Word is, they will be canning it soon.

    Aren't they the ones that bear almost no resemblance to a proper Gose? At least that's what Stan Hieronymous told me.

    Yeah, I will toss in a third vote for Rapp Brewing Gose. Its phenomenal, Its about 45 minutes away from me but I regularly make the trip just for the Gose (and now for his hazelnut porter).

    Flying Dog has a draft Gose, may make it down to Texas.

    Yes. Definitely much stronger to begin with, amongst other peculiarities. Not bad, just not Gose-ish.

    I think I read that Off Color Brewing (Laffler's new brewery in Chicago) is launching with a gose. Cant wait to try it.

    Why do they call it Gose then?

    So is their business plan to cater only to beer geeks?
  40. oregone

    oregone Disciple (357) Jul 2, 2008 Oregon

    I would guess because of the salt and lactic presence? Marketability? Dunno.

    Edit: just looked them up on here. It appears that only one is listed as 6%abv or higher. I would swear that each time I've tried one it's been >6%...
    In any case, nice beers (some of my favorites from Cascade), but I would agree that they're not to style (particularly with the odd spicings and such).
