It's Go-suh not Gos-ay
Our Undersea Gose is one of our recurring brews, and a fan favourite too. Gose's are a style that originated in Goslar, Germany and have since gained popularity in BC's craft beer community.
The main characteristics of a gose will be its use of coriander, lemon peel, and salt - and we get our salt by adding locally harvested bull kelp from Dakini Tidal Wilds in Sooke. This Gose-style beer is full of flavour with a tangy citrus zip, and a slight saltiness from the bull kelp that rounds out this light and refreshing beer and replenishes all of those vital electrolytes. 😉
Okay, but why is it blue!?
A couple of Summers ago we got our hands on some spirulina powder, a blue-green algae that when turned in to a powder is a vibrant blue colour often used as a health supplement or food colouring. Since this beer has always been an homage to the ocean, we thought we'd take it a step further and make it look like the ocean too.We make a lot of blue drinks, and you can almost gaurantee it's because of spirulina powder.
