Sierra Nevada's New Gose, Otra Vez

Sierra Nevada's New Gose, Otra Vez

Chico, California

Sierra Nevada has a new brew hitting the shelves nation wide this month. With the perfection that is Sierra Nevada's Pale Ale it is sometimes easy to forget that they have a lineup full of amazing beers, both dark and hoppy. The newest offering to their yearly lineup is Otra Vez, a gose-style ale brewed with cactus and grapefruit, both native to California.

A Look Inside Off Color Brewing

A Look Inside Off Color Brewing

A new brewery opening in Chicago is becoming a common occurrence and we're just fine with that. However, it's not every day that a brewery comes to the table with quite the resume behind its founding members. John Laffler and Dave Bleitner are the brains behind Off Color Brewing. Laffler who was previously the barrel aging guru at Goose Island, is the latest to leave Chicago's biggest brewery to take on their own project. If you don't know his name, you've likely heard of their greatest creation, Bourbon County Stout; one of the world's best reviewed beers and a direct product of the much lauded barrel aging program. Bleitner, formally the head of cellaring at Two Brothers in Warrenville, has been a major part of one of Chicago's most successful breweries. His creations include some of my personal favourites Sidekick Extra Pale Ale and Cane & Ebel Red Rye, to name a few.
