We’re having a Real Ale Bonanza at R!
It’s a Real Ale Bonanza at R this week, with 3 great offerings: Gose, Hans Pils, and Fireman’s 4!
Gose is a rarely brewed regional specialty beer from Northern Germany. A slightly sour wheat beer, it’s known for hints of coriander and a unique saltiness that is derived from the local water source. As a twist on the original, we add fresh lime juice to our version after fermentation. The result is a delightfully tart and refreshing beer to help you slug it out with even the hottest of Texas summers.
“The perfect summer libation – Pours a cloudy light gold with good carbonation and fine soapy effervescence. Smells of lime and lighter tropical notes, some fruity esters, hint of biscuit and yeast.”
Fireman’s 4 is named as a tribute to our good friends (and bad ass bike makers) at Firemans Texas Cruzer and because it was the fourth year-round beer we created, Firemans #4 is our most popular and best-selling beer to date. With an ever-drinkable balance of smooth malt and zesty hops, this refreshing blonde is perfect on a hot day or paired with spicy food.
“A nice blonde beer pours a slightly hazy golden color with little to no head. A nice but weak beer smell with a really good flavor.”
Hans’ Pils – You might say, a great beer is man’s other best friend. So when we made this German-style pilsner, it just made sense to name it after the brewery’s dog, Hans — our owner’s German Shorthair Pointer. Inspired by the pilsner beers of Northern Germany, Hans is crisp, brightly hoppy and full of flavor. At 50 IBUs and featuring Tettnang hops, it’s even hoppier than many pale ales. The German malt helps create a nice pale golden color and provides the perfect companion to the hops.
“Clear, golden color with a beautifuly persistent lacining. Well balanced with the hops just pushing forward. A nice bitter aftertaste mingles with a rich, malty sweetness and leaves me wanting more.”
