PostModern Brewers Announces Details For The Latest Release of Collaboration Beers to Benefit Boise Art Museum

Boise, ID — The third release in PostModern Brewers collaboration series with The Boise Art Museum (BAM) is now available.  Cherry Blossom Gose, inspired by and brewed for the exhibit, Folding Paper, featuring origami curated by Meher McArthur and tour organized by the Japanese American National Museum, Los Angeles, and International Arts & Artists, Washington, DC. The exhibition was generously supported by the E. Rhodes & Leona B. Carpenter Foundation.

For this collaboration, brewer Marvin Kinney delved deep into brewing history to revive an ancient German style beer, gose, pronounced Gose-uh like Rose-uh.  This early German brew originated in the Leipzig area known for its slightly salty natural aquifers which in medieval times were considered to hold curative powers.  This briny water lends a distinct saltiness to this mildly tart beer with hints of lemon, coriander and soft body from wheat in the grain bill.
This style faded into obscurity in the 20th century as mass produced lagers overtook German palettes as well as palettes across the globe.  

With the explosion of American craft beer, interest in this style has been revived and many brewers are trying their hand at a gose and expanding on its origins with twist of their own.  PostModern Brewers twist was to merge German history with Japanese additions by adding salt cured cherry blossoms that were pickled in an Ume plum vinegar.  The finished beer has bright citrus notes highlighted with a earthy sourdough quality and subtle fruitiness.  This beer pairs well with oysters, smoked salmon, and Idaho Steelhead.

A portion of the sales of each keg of PostModern Cherry Blossom Gose benefits The Boise Art Museum Education Department.
