Meet the Funk

Whereas most brewers take great care to keep their breweries clean, this group of beers have deliberately been exposed to bacteria and/or wild yeast. This is how beers used to be made, hundreds of years ago. The challenge for brewers is to manage the brewing process such that the end result is still tasty and drinkable. Think of these beers as the difference between milk (a pale ale) and stilton cheese (a funky, bacteria infected taste sensation - but not for everybody!)

Brilliant Beer


An old German beer style from Leipzig, Gose is an unfiltered wheat beer made with 50-60% malted wheat, which creates a cloudy yellow color and provides a refreshing crispness and twang. A Gose will have a low hop bitterness and a complementary dryness and spice from the use of ground coriander seeds and a sharpness from the addition of salt. Like Berliner Weisse beers, a Gose will sometimes be laced with various flavored and colored syrups. This is to balance out the addition of lactic acid that is added to the boil.
