Rum & key lime-y Unknown Bright Ass Tank Top returns

Unknown Bright Ass Tank Top can

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 last year of his excitement to find such great rum barrels.

“They smell like being drunk on a beach or being a pirate.”- Brad Schell, brewery founder

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 is available once again in 16 ounce cans and draft.

Style: Gose (w/ Sea Salt, Key Limes. Barrel Aged. Rum.)
Availability: 16oz Cans, Draft.

Distribution: NC, SC, GA
Latest Return: June, 2017

Top Gun Beer: Second Self Margarita in Gose

Second Self Margarita in Gose cans

We honestly aren’t sure what we drink more of around the Beer Street Journal office – beer or margaritas. This new Atlanta release makes choosing a little bit easier. Second Self Margarita in Gose debuts June 1st.

Let’s address the most badass fact about this beer, the Top Gun theme. Second Self now has a “Top Gun Series” of beers, that started with Maverick & Gose last year. That beer is back in the skies (shelves) once again with an updated recipe. Since you can’t pull off an inverted flying maneuver without a partner, Second Self Margarita in Gose, aka “MIG” is here.

MIG mimics taste of a margarita thanks to fresh orange lime juice and Florida orange peel. Those flavors, plus a touch of salt makes this gose margarita/beer  hybrid. Shots of tequila might make the perfect compliment. The choice is yours.

Second Self Margarita in Gose is available starting June 1st in Georgia and Alabama.

Style: Gose (w/ Lime. Orange Peel. Coriander, Sea Salt.)
Availability: 12oz Cans, Draft.
Debut: 6/1/17

4.3% ABV

Terrapin Watermelon Gose returns ahead of the summer heat

Terrapin Watermelon Gose cans

Terrapin Watermelon Gose is headed back to shelves, in time for the coming summer.

Terrapin Watermelon Gose is the brewery’s first packaged gose style, a tart beer traditionally brewed with sea salt and coriander. Now, unless you haven’t paid a single lick of attention to the American craft beer scene at all in the past few years, the U.S. loves breaking tradition. Enter watermelon into the fold.

RELATED: Terrapin T-Time (with tea & lemon)

The base gose is aged on fresh watermelon juice, which is a nice offset to the tart base beer. So much summer packed into this 12 ounce can.

Terrapin Watermelon Gose is available across the brewery’s entire footprint starting in June, 2017.

Style: Gose (w/ Coriander. Salt. Watermelon.)
Availability: 12oz Cans
Latest Return: June, 2017

Boulevard Tequila Barrel Lime Gose hits taps

Boulevard Tequila Barrel Lime Gose

Boulevard Tequila Barrel Lime Gose, a new barrel-aged sour ale, is showing up on on tap handles.

In mid-2016, Kansas City based Boulevard Brewing acquired freshly emptied tequila barrels. After a style debate on what would go into the wood the brewery settled on a German-style gose.

Aged with fresh limes, Boulevard Tequila Barrel Lime Gose smells of oak and vanilla. According to Boulevard expect:

…a pleasant, refreshing lactic acidity and hints of coriander and sea salt, citrus flavors mingle with malt sweetness to temper the acidity and touch of heat provided by tequila barrel-aging.

Boulevard Tequila Barrel Lime Gose is a draft only offering available in the brewery’s entire footprint.

Style: Gose (w/ Limes. Barrel Aged. Tequila.)
Availability: Draft Only
Debut: May, 2017

5.9% ABV, 15 IBUs

Ed Note: Tequila Barrel Gose debuted in the brewery’s hometown at the beginning of May. The brewery’s out of state markets are seeing kegs starting now according to distributors.

Creature Comforts Cucumber and Lime Tritonia set for cans
