Real Ale Event @ Cottonwood

Swing by Cottonwood for a Real Ale Brewing "Buy the Beer, Keep the Glass" event involving 18th Anniversary Gose...it's a limited edition and so is the commemorative glass.  TONIGHT 6:00 PM - 8:00 PM.  As an added bonus, the Real Ale Rep will be on hand to ask questions, dazzle you with her beer acumen and make sure you get your glass of  goodness.  Whilst you imbibe, please be sure to order up something to eat - pretty sure you won't be disappointed (that's sarcasm).

Label for I8th Anniversary Gose

Gose is a rarely brewed regional specialty beer from Northern Germany. A slightly sour ale, it is known for its use of coriander and a unique saltiness that is derived from the local water source. Our first batch of Gose was brewed on a 7 bbl system with our friends at Odell Brewing Company. The recipe is the same now as it was then: a high percentage of malted wheat, acidulated malt to lower pH and impart a subtle sour character, with fresh ground coriander and crystal salt to finish the boil. As a twist on the original German brews, whole limes were pureed and added to the beer after fermentation. The result is a delightfully tart and most refreshing tipple, a perfect beer for a Texas celebration. Thank you to our friends in Colorado for sharing in this creation; thank you to our friends here at home for enjoying it with us after 18 years.
