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

Creature Comforts Cucumber and Lime Tritonia set for cans

Creature Comforts Cucumber & Lime Tritonia

Creature Comforts Cucumber and Lime Tritonia is coming to cans soon. The Athens, Georgia based brewery found instant success with the fusion of limes and cucumber when the gose was released on draft for the first time two years ago.

“Tritonia is one of my favorite of our limited release beers. It’s extremely refreshing and perfect for the spring months as the weather starts to warm up.” – David Stein, Co-founder and Head Brewer

Creature Comforts Cucumber and Lime Tritonia is one of two “Tritonia” variants expected this year. Available in very limited 12 ounce cans and draft.

The Veil Brewing Never Again Raspberry Gose

The Veil Brewing Never Again Raspberry Gose, new addition to the “Never Again” series, rounds out a strong April for the brewery.

Terrrapin Himalayan Pink Sea Salt Lime Gose

Terrapin Himalayan Pink Sea Salt Lime Gose is on deck in Athens, Georgia.

The brewery already has a winner in the gose style – Watermelon Gose. The beer tastes like summer feels. Joining the brewery’s Side Project Series is  Terrrapin Himalayan Pink Sea Salt Lime Gose, another warm weather/tropically inspired beer.

The name pretty much gives away the composition of this gose; nuanced with limes, pink sea salt, and coriander.

The Gose is made with mineral-rich Himalayan Pink Sea Salt and has flavors of fresh squeezed Makrut Limes and subtle hints of Coriander. Quench your thirst as you meditate on our latest brew.

Side Project #29 is hitting shelves now – Chubby Bunny, a decadent s’mores inspired imperial milk stout. Also preceding this release will be Side Project #30, Blueberry Thyme Saison.

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.

Jacob Wiseheart, an employee of Founders taproom created the label artwork.

Founders Green Zebra will be available in 12 ounce cans and draft in August, 2017.

Style: Gose (w/ Watermelon. Sea Salt.)

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
