18 Apr Scarlet Lane & TwoDEEP Announce High Castle Black Gose Collaboration
“With us having a love of German-style beers and Scarlet Lane being focused on stouts, we thought this idea would be a unique and fun challenge…we also came up with this idea while drinking at Twenty Tap in Broad Ripple. So there’s also that,” said Andy Meyer, TwoDEEP Brewing.
Gose is a top-fermented beer that originated in Goslar, Germany. The flavor profile of the gose includes some form of herbal characteristic, strong saltiness with slight lemon tartness. Typically, the grain bill is at least 50% malted wheat.
High Castle Black Gose will take a classic gose recipe and marry it with the American Stout beer.
“At first I said, ‘what the hell are you guys talking about? Gose? Stout?’” said Eilise Lane, Scarlet Lane Brewing. “But the more I thought about it and talked with the TwoDEEP Brewing team the more the idea actually seemed doable. We worked together through some different recipe ideas and landed on one that is going to be really cool and different.”
High Castle Black Gose will be available at both breweries with a limited number of kegs available within the Indianapolis area and will launch the week of Indiana Craft Beer Week hosted by Indianaontap.com – April 27th & 28th at the breweries and April 29th at Twenty Tap in Broadripple.
“All of us younger breweries have talked about doing more collaborations locally and this is our third collaboration for Scarlet Lane. Every time we do one we have a ton of fun and light a spark of creativity. We plan to continue doing a lot of collaborations with our industry partners,” said Lane.
“The camaraderie of our industry is unmatched and it really shows when collaborating with other local breweries. It highlights to the public that we are truly in this together; to change the way people think about beer and what our industry stands for. We definitely look forward to bringing new and exciting collaborations to the market,” said Meyer.
