Founders will can watermelon gose “Green Zebra”

Founders Green Zebra

Founders Green Zebra is slated to join the brewery’s lineup in August.

2017 marks the fifth year that Founders has brewed a beer for the ArtPrize competition hosted in the brewery’s hometown of Grand Rapids, Michigan. Previous releases in the lineup include Pale Joe, Spectra Trifecta, and Mosaic Promise.

This year’s release, Founders Green Zebra, is a goes-style ale brewed with watermelon and sea salt. A new packaged style for Founders, as well as being the first ArtPrize release that has been canned.

Watermelon is the highlight of this lightly-hopped treat and gives it a hint of satisfying juiciness. The soft mouthfeel and dry finish comes courtesy of the addition of sea salt, a traditional gose ingredient.

Westbrook Key Lime Pie Gose has been canned once again

Westbrook Key Lime Pie Gose can

Westbrook Key Lime Pie Gose has been canned once again this week, shipping soon from 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 is no different. You say the word pie and people come running.

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. We can’t stop thinking about pie. It does become more pie-like as it gets warmer. Or we maybe we just want pie.

Westbrook Key Lime Pie Gose will be available again in 12 ounce cans, and draft, as a limited seasonal.

Style: Gose (w/ Key Lime, Sea Salt, Coriander.)
Availability: 12oz Cans, Draft. Seasonal release.
Latest Return: April, 2017
