What: Hoosier Beer Geek's Hangover Brunch - Follow up the Indiana Microbrewers Festival with a hearty brunch designed to get you back on your feet.
Ritterguts Gose (4.2% ABV)
Gose–the lactic and salty specialty ale associated with the German cities of Goslar and Leipzig–has a chronicled history dating back over a thousand years.
But not so long ago, it was virtually extinct, known only to a shrinking base of locals and the odd beer tourist who made the trek to the few Leipzig pubs that still served the quirky specialty.
Today, with interest in sour ales soaring, “new-traditionalist” brewers in Germany, the U.S., and beyond are recreating the style – generally with a nod towards a sweeter, more “drinkable” palate, or to a relatively simplified, aggressive lacticity.
Ritterguts Gose is the real thing, the one example still made to the traditional recipes – boldly sour and funky, but with the elusive old-German qualities of balance and complexity.
As they say at Ritterguts, “Goseanna!”
Mikkeller Rauch Geek Breakfast Stout (7.5% ABV)
An oatmeal stout with 25% oat-based ingredients and a nice touch of gourmet coffee and a lot of smoked malts. This beer is a smoked version of Mikkeller's Beer Geek Breakfast.
Ingredients: Water, malt (Pils, oat, smoked, Caramunich, Brown, Pale Chocolate and Chocolate), roasted barley, flaked oats, hops (Centennial and Cascade), ale yeast, and gourmet coffee.
