Odell Brewing Co.’s newest beer takes its name from the German translation of one of its ingredients.
The Fort Collins, Colo.-based brewery will be releasing Brombeere, a 4.8 percent ABV traditional gose that is brewed with blackberries. The name Brombeere translates to blackberry from German.
“We love blackberries as much as the next beer,” reads the label filed with the Alcohol and Tobacco Tax and Trade Bureau (TTB). “So we wondered: what if we used the sweetness of those berries to compliment the saltiness of a German-style sour wheat beer? Our blackberry gose (GOSE-uh) is a balance of tangy and sweet, and is crisp and lively as some of our favorite late summer evenings.”
The newest release is far from Odell’s first gose, as it released Comes and Gose (5.8 percent) in 2014 and How Gose It (4.8 percent ABV) earlier this year. In fact, according to Amanda King, marketing and branding manager at Odell, “How Gose It was a test batch for this beer. We did a few before landing on our final recipe!”
According to the label, Brombeere will be packaged in 4-packs of 12-ounce bottles and will be released in “late June/early July”. The new beer will be sent to Odell’s entire 11-state distribution network.
