Happy [almost] Memorial Day weekend! As you raise a glass this weekend, may I recommend this easy sipper that's perfect for any summertime celebration - but seemed most fitting to share at the unofficial start of the summer season!
What: The Kimmie, The Yink, & The Holy Gose by Anderson Valley Brewing Company
Tasting Notes: The evident sea salt and touch of coriander (two flavors that should always be found in gose-style beers) are balanced out beautifully with notes of peach and citrus. The combination of flavors is interesting at first (salty! slightly sweet!), leaving you longing for each bright, bubbly sip.
Pairing Suggestion: Goses go very well with oysters, so find some fresh ones this weekend and get shuckin'!
Where Can I Find It? This beer is widely available - click here to find it near you. (Side note: Anderson Valley's website says this gose is only available July-August, but I've already seen it around these parts (and it typically lasts on the shelves for much longer after August).
What will you be sipping on this weekend?
Happy Memorial Day! And a giant thank you to all of the service men, women, and their families.
