The beer is based on a traditional German-style gose. The origination of the gose (actually pronounced ‘go-suh’) style hailed from a region near Leipzig in Germany, where the use of salty water from the Goslar River was used to brew a wheat-based beer. Additionally the open fermenters historically used to brew these beers, allowed for wild yeasts and bacteria to inoculate it, resulting in a tart flavor.
Eagle Rock Brewery’s Rosé Gosé was first released on draft only in October, 2018, and will be debuting 16oz. cans in time for the New Year! At only 4.5% abv it’s the perfect low-alcohol but high-flavor alternative to bubbly for ringing in the New Year. This interpretation of the traditional German gose uses malted barley, rye and oats, Himalayan salt, a vegan culture of lactobacillus in a kettle-souring technique, and currants, raspberries, and peaches. The result is a beautiful pink beer with great fruit character, a subtle tartness, and a very clean, dry finish.
The new cans will be available for purchase at the ERB tasting room (3056 Roswell Street, Los Angeles, 90065) only on Friday, December 28, 2018, and will be released through distribution the week of the New Year. ERB tasting room holiday hours are Monday-Friday 4pm-10pm, Saturday 12pm-10pm, Sunday 12pm-8pm. CLOSED Tuesday December 25, 2018 (Christmas Day) and Tuesday January 1, 2019 (New Year’s Day). If you’re in the northeast Los Angeles area, be sure to stop into the ERB tasting room to pick up your 4-packs before your New Year celebrations!
