Lost Nation’s Summer Session

Hilary DelRoss recommends a summer beer by Lost Nation, the brewing company that relies on local Vermont life for inspiration.

Lost Nation’s brews are on the lighter side by design. The Morrisville brewing company produces session beers with low alcohol levels so you can feel comfortable enjoying more than one at a time and at 4.5% ABV, their Gose is a refreshing choice in summer weather.

Gose (pronounced “GOH-zuh”) is a German style, brewed with wheat, coriander and sea salt. It is pale gold, with some effervescence and a thin lattice. Aromas are light and fresh with hints of yeast, citrus and malt. The saltiness, sour citrus and sweet malt flavors all come through individually but none are overpowering and the balance continues on the light, dry finish.

During the warmer months, you can enjoy this and other easy drinking varieties while lingering in Lost Nation’s beer garden or pair it with locally sourced pub fare from the tap room kitchen. Gose was recently released in 16 ounce cans so you can take a 4-pack to go and pack this summer sipper in your cooler or picnic basket.
