As we move into Spring, our tastebuds are yearning for something a bit lighter than the stouts and porters that have been keeping us warm all winter. Luckily for us, Southern Tier Brewing Company is helping pull us into Spring with their Imperial Cherry Gose. This sour beer turns heads and leaves a memorable taste in our mouths making it our #BeerOfTheWeek.

Having access to this “super food” always the brewery to produce a bright color, clean and juicy aroma and flavor that is accentuated by the fruit’s natural acidity.
