Gose Is A Beer That Keeps Summer Cool

Gose Is A Beer That Keeps Summer Cool

Gose is one of the more unusual beers on the market today, an ancient German style that just five years ago was largely unknown in the United States. Just in time for our most recent drop of fresh Westbrook Gose, we found this interesting article from the NY Times about the style and its history. Of course, we don’t carry all of these gose beers, as our distribution network is much different than NY’s. Nonetheless we strive to have a varied selection of the style. Most notably, Westbrook and Anderson Valley. Enjoy the last bit of summer heat with a refreshing gose.

    We’ll be celebrating a huge turning point in NC’s beer scene. Prior to the legislation change, NC was limited to beers 6% and under. A committed group of beer people formed Pop The Cap, including our own Lector Bennett, petitioned the state to repeal the Prohibition-era law.
    All of the beers we’ll have on tap have some significance to us and our involvement in the movement, Pop The Cap. Fullsteam’s founder, Sean Lilly Wilson, was hugely instrumental in the movement and so we’ll have two of his beers on tap: his flagship Lager and his Paycheck Pils. One of the breweries we patiently awaited was the legendary Trappist, Chimay. We managed to score a keg of their Dorée, a limited spiced pale ale. And though this seems to not have much connection to the history, we’ll have 21st Amendment’s Brew Free! or Die IPA. Because, Brew Free or Die.

  • Throwback Thursday: Revisit one of our old favourite beers.
  • ExBEERiment: This week, Josh Russell will be infusing Fullsteam Southern Lager with strawberries & basil. The first pint pours at 9 PM.


  • New Favourite Friday: Try the latest & greatest!


  • Bartender’s Choice: You never know what you’re going to get!


  • Beer Church: This week we’ll be filling pint glasses with some great brews out of the original Asheville, NC brewery, Highland Brewing Company! We have their St. Terese’s Pale Ale, Gaelic Amber Ale, Oatmeal Porter and the new King MacAlpin Imperial IPA. Masses are at 1 PM and 8 PM.
