Two of Westbrook Brewing Co.’s most popular warm-weather beers are returning for another season.
Last week, Gose – the brewery’s immensely popular 4% German-style sour wheat ale – began rolling off the canning line for the first time this year and popped up in markets throughout the state soon after. The beer has skyrocketed in popularity in recent years after making the jump from bombers to 12 oz. cans as well as having its production run expanded to more than half the year. Gose currently sits at No. 1 on BeerAdvocate’s rankings of the style.
Then on Tuesday, Shane’s Big DIPA hit the bottling line for a wide release in the near future. The “monstrously big and hoppy” 9.6% imperial IPA usually hits around the March/April window and should be on shelves statewide in the next couple of weeks. No word on whether any is slated for North Carolina following the brewery’s recent expansion into the state.
Up next on Westbrook’s seasonal release calendar: Mexican Cake.
