Boulevard Hibiscus Gose will debut in cans in April.
This floral gose started as a Boulevard holiday beer years ago, bottled briefly in the brewery’s Backroads Series in 2014. Boulevard Hibiscus Gose is created by adding sea salt during the boiling process, along with coriander. During the whirlpool process, Boulevard infuses the wort with dried hibiscus flowers.
A slightly salty aroma with a touch of coriander and citrus/cherry notes wafts from the beer. The leading flavor is a lemony tartness obtained from the brewhouse souring process with subtle salt and coriander notes. Hibiscus Gose finishes crisp and dry with a slightly lingering sourness that’s tempered by the sea salt, coriander, and hibiscus flowers.
Boulevard Hibiscus Gose debuts in the brewery’s home city of Kansas City, Missouri on April 2nd. Expect 12-ounce cans and draft in the brewery’s other regions shortly after launch.

The Asheville, North Carolina based Hi-Wire Brewing’s specialty lineup has recently included stars like Pink Drink, 10W-40 Imperial Stout, and, Man Eater. A Beer Street Journal favorite from 2017 Hi-Wire Citra Gose is making a second appearance this month.
The tart gose is big on the tropical notes of Citra hops which fall on a background of sour tartness. Gose is a great beer, but throw in the aspects of Citra hops, and the real winner is your taste buds. This release is so bright you’ve got to wear shades. Every sip of this is a reminder that warm weather is coming.
Hi-Wire Citra Gose is available in 16-ounce cans and draft in limited quantities across the brewery’s distribution footprint.
Availability: 16oz Cans, Draft.
Latest Return: March 2018

We honestly aren’t sure what we drink more of around the Beer Street Journal office – beer or margaritas. This release makes choosing between the two a little bit easier. Second Self Margarita in Gose is back for a second season.
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 the 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 in Georgia and Alabama again in March 2018.

Anderson, South Carolina’s Carolina Bauernhaus is planning on bottling their spicy Walhallapeno beer. A collaboration with Frothy Beard Brewing.
If you are a fan of heat, you’ll find it here. Jalapeños bring the burn, rounded out by a touch of tartness by the base beer which is a gose. This beer has been frequently found in the taproom and has a loyal following. As we understand it, one of the founders of Frothy Beard hails from Wahalla, South Carolina. Thus, the derivation of the Walhallapeno name.
Salty! Sour! Spicy! Walhallapeno is our delightfully refreshing collaboration with our friend at Frothy Beard Brewing in Charleston, SC. The bright spicy flavor of locally grown jalapeño peppers are a delicious complement to our salty and sour Gose. This rustic refined flavored ale was oak fermented with our house blend of native yeast and soured with locally sourced lactobacillus from SouthYeast Labs.
Carolina Bauernhaus Walhallapeno is slated for 22 ounce bottles, and already available on draft.
