New Ulm, MN (PRWEB) March 19, 2013
The August Schell Brewing Co., the second-oldest family-owned brewery in the country, brewer of Schell’s and Grain Belt, is set to release its latest beer, Schell’s Goosetown on April 1st.
The beer is a traditional, German-style Gose (pronounced “Gose-uh”), using over 20 pounds of coriander spice in each brew. It has a bright lemon zest, coriander aroma and a slight saltiness that rounds out this new summer brew. The beer pours clear, golden orange in color, with a thick white foam head. A refreshingly light and citrusy tartness greets your palate, backed by a bready, wheat malt character. The beer is available in 6-packs, 12-packs and draft from early April until October.
Schell’s Goosetown is named after a neighborhood located across the tracks and down by the Minnesota River in New Ulm, settled by mostly Catholic German-Bohemian immigrants in the late 1800’s. These immigrants raised gaggles of geese, which wandered freely throughout the neighborhood and fed along the banks of the river.
A media release party will be held at Schell’s Brewery for the official launch of Goosetown on Thursday, April 4th. Schell’s brewmasters will be on hand to answer questions and chef Topher Jacobson from Artisan’s at the Grand in New Ulm, MN will prepare food pairings. For media invitation requests or other inquiries contact tholm(at)schellsbrewery(dot)com.
