The Session #116 Announcement : Anything Gose

As the host for the 116th Beer Blogger Session, I’m asking everyone to write about the Gose style, mostly unknown for much of the The Session’s nearly ten year history. In just the past 2-3 years, the Gose has become one of the fastest growing beer styles despite its unusual blend of sour and saltiness. Heady times for the Gose style that not all that long ago was nearly extinct.

Speaking of extinction, I notice there are no volunteers listed to host future Session topics. So if you want to keep this Session thing going, consider hosting one. You can find out how to host a future Session at the bottom of this link.

Back to this month’s Session, I choose the Gose style in particular since it can be approached in so many different ways. Want to talk about the history of the Gose?  How about how American breweries are taking this style and running wild with it with different spice and fruit additions?  How else has the Gose manifested itself outside its German homeland?  Is the Gose here to stay or will it go the way of the Black IPA, once the hot style but slowly becoming a largely irrelevant curiosity?  (OK, that might not be your opinion of the Black IPA, but you get the idea.) Of course, we’re all on the look-out for a good Gose, so if there are any you particularly like, we’d love to hear about them.

Just post you contribution the first Friday of October, the 7th and leave a link in this post’s comments section. Or you can e-mail the link to me at photon.dpeterman[at]gmail(dot)com.  A few days later, I’ll post the round-up of everyone’s contribution.

And make sure you pronounce “Gose” correctly.
