The word ‘virtuoso’ is not often used in the brewing world, but how else would you describe someone who brews a Gose with red gum-smoked salt and Tajín Clásico Seasoning, and then ages it in reposado tequila barrels?
Mountain Goat brewer, Kenny drew inspiration from his time in Central America for this Rare Breed and if the man himself were a beer, this would be it.
The brew is a sweet, sour and salty delight. There is a delicate earthiness from the tequila barrels, while the combination of Tajin seasoning and smoked salt gives the base Gose an intriguing piquancy that dances across the tongue. 7% ABV
