The Veil Brewing Never Sufficient, part of the brewery’s Limited Release Series, debuts today in cans.
Using Veil’s house gose (known as Never), the brewery added a “crap load” of Montmorency cherries and black lava salt. Beer Street Journal had a taste of this beer earlier this week. The finished beer is very bright, with a very fresh cherry flavor, and a subtle tart finish. The color is absolutely stunning.
The Veil Brewing Never Sufficient is available in 16 ounce cans, in 4 packs at the brewery in Richmond, Virginia. $16 dollars each.
New year-round beer for 2017 – Terrapin Easy Gose.
In summer 2016, Terrapin launched Watermelon Gose. Easily one the best hot weather beers we had last year. Releasing a gose on a large scale like that taught the brewery something. People love the gose style.
Watermelon Gose will return in time again for hot weather, alongside Terrapin Easy Gose.
Easy Gose will feature grapefruit peel, creating a beer that’s tart, light, and citrusy.
Terrapin Easy Gose will be a 12 ounce can and draft release, year-round
Debut: April, 2017

Unknown Bright Ass Tank Top drops in about two weeks, slamming two styles together in one canned package.
It seems like key limes have found almost overnight success in beer. Unknown Bright Ass Tank Top has them in the base gose, plus 15 year old Nicaraguan rum barrels. Brewery founder Brad Schell told Beer Street Journal back in June he was pretty excited to find such great rum barrels. “They smell like being drunk on a beach or being a pirate.”
The base beer is a gose brewed with sea salt and key limes, then aged in the rum barrels for over three months.
The result? A bold beer. There are a few key lime flavored beers running around out there these days. While some just taste a little citrusy, Bright Ass Tank Top doesn’t let you forget what it is. A rum filled gose that is full of key lime juice. You can’t miss a bright as shit tank top walking by you. You won’t forget this beer either.
Unknown Bright Ass Tank Top will be available in late August in 16 ounce cans and draft.
Distribution: NC, SC, Atlanta
Debut: Early September, 2016
This new tart ale is actually three different styles of beer that come together in one union. SeaQuench starts as a traditional kolsch, a salt-forward gose that is brewed with black limes and sea salt, and a Berliner Weisse brewed with lime juice and peel. The three beers were blended together during fermentation, resulting in a mixed, session sour ale.
Why? This is Dogfish Head’s “off-centered” way of rebelling against the now 500 year old Reinheitsgebot, aka “The German Purity Law.”
Three styles blissfully brewed in sequence for a citrusy-tart union, our hybrid sour quencher is brewed with lime peel, black limes, and sea salt.
Dogfish Head SeaQuench Ale is brewed in collaboration with the National Aquarium. Dogfish Head has already started various conservation efforts to help preserve local Chesapeake Bay.
Starting August 1st, SeaQuench Ale will be available in 12 ounce bottles and draft.
Westbrook Key Lime Pie Gose is now available. A new edition in a line of gose by the Mount Pleasant, South Carolina brewery.
Regular Westbrook Gose (simply called Gose) debuted in 2012 and is still fairly hard for stores to keep in stock years later. Key Lime Pie Gose will be no different.
The slightly sour beer is brewed with coriander and sea salt, plus a touch of key lime juice.
Fans of the the brewery’s original gose will definitely find the resemblance in Key Lime. When cold (like, refrigerator cold), the beer has a strong lime tartness. Key lime juice is the boss. As the beer warms up a bit, there is some hints of graham cracker. Or… we could be completely making that part up. It does start to taste like pie as it gets warmer. Or we just want pie.
Westbrook Key Lime Pie Gose is available in 12 ounce cans, and draft, as a limited seasonal.
Avery El Gose is now available in cans. You can figure out the style, right?
If the “El” isn’t a dead giveaway, the sour ale uses lime and sea salt. A bit like a margarita, in a sense.
A timeless, traditional tart gose (goes-uh) with its zesty and salty disposition is brightened by a tangy citrus twist. A bier for every día!
While it seems like folks are already gearing up for fall, it is still nearly 100 degrees outside. Avery El Gose shines in the heat. We are no strangers to boozy margaritas mind you. El Gose’s slight sour tartness, mixed with lime and salt tastes like a bit like your favorite house mix. Actually, that gives me a good idea. Breaking out the tequila with the next can.
12 ounce cans of Avery El Gose debut at a special release party at the Boulder brewery on July, 2016.
Look for Avery Chai High to debut in fall, 2016.
Southern Tier Cherry Gose is one of the latest releases from the Lakewood, New York based brewery.
The gose style hails from Germany. At least 50% of the base beer is brewed with wheat, plus adjuncts like salt and coriander. Most goes-style beers are around 4 to 5.5% alcohol by volume.
Southern Tier Cherry Gose incorporates tart cherry juice in an imperial edition of the style. The brewery’s home state of New York ranks 4th in the United States in tart cherry production. A unnamed grower near the brewery provided the cherry puree.
Cherry Gose is soured over the course of three days using Lactobacillus buchneri, a strain of souring bacteria.
Quantitatively, this beer is quite sweet, but we find that this level of residual sweetness is just enough to balance the acidity and that the overall perception of the beer is actually quite dry.
The beer will be available in 12 ounce bottles and draft as a limited release.
