CITY of GOSES, the largest and possibly first celebration strictly dedicated to gose-style beers is also the Portland Rose Festival’s sanctioned beer fest. The Memorial Day weekend event will feature 30 goses from Saxony to Stumptown. Thirsty attendees will discover über traditional versions on this salty, sour beer including imports from its source in Leipzig, Germany to takes from around Portland and across the globe, CITY of GOSES. The fest takes place three blocks from the Albina/Mississippi Max station just one stop north of the Gose Quarter at LABrewatory. Admission includes a souvenir glass and additional tasting tickets will be available for $1 each.

In a world where sour beers are increasingly sought after, lower-alcohol session ales have a foothold, and warmer weather always calls for the most refreshing beer, it’s no surprise today’s craft brewers are exploring gose (pronounced gose-uh). This wheat ale is traditionally brewed with salt, coriander, and tart lactic acid and each participating brewery delivers a distinct spin via selected salts and additional ingredients.

The mostly Portland line-up includes: Baerlic, Burnside, Cascade, Coalition (featuring hemp extracted CBD), The Commons, Culmination, Deschutes-PDX, Ecliptic, Great Notion, Hopworks, Occidental, Rogue, Stormbreaker, Widmer Bros., and Zoiglhaus. Host brewery LABrewatory will have a collaboration with Cerveza Loba in Portland Sister City Guadalajara.

Some of the breweries from beyond the City of Roses include four from California—Anderson Valley, Bruery Terreux (getting into the spirit with a gose featuring rose petals, rose hips, and rose water), Modern Times, and Sierra Nevada—plus the GABF gold medal winning gose from Reuben’s in Seattle, Oedipus (from Amsterdam), and Ritterguts the traditional classic imported from Leipzig.
