BREAKSIDE & FAT HEAD’S ‘JUGGLING PLUMS’ SALTED PLUM GOSE RELEASE!

BREAKSIDE & FAT HEAD’S ‘JUGGLING PLUMS’ SALTED PLUM GOSE RELEASE!

Thursday, January 1, 2015

WED. JAN. 14TH FROM 6 to 9PM To kick off 2015, Breakside & Fat Head’s Breweries have brewed a draft-only collaboration, “Juggling Plums”, A Gose (slightly sour wheat beer traditionally made with salt and coriander).  In a non-traditional twist, they derived all of the salt from an unlikely source:  the Japanese salt plum or “Umeboshi”.  Umeboshi are small Japanese plums that have been cured with Red Shiso (an Asian culinary herb, belonging to the mint family) and salt and spend a year fermenting in wooden barrels.  The result is a fruit that is intensely briny with a light sweetness and herbaceous quality. 

In the spirit of collaboration different components of the beer were brewed at each of the participating breweries.  Fat Head’s grew up the sour wort used to give the beer it’s tartness, while Breakside supplied the base wort and salt plums. The finished beer is incredibly refreshing and complex.  It’s a “Gateway Sour” with a moderate body and slightly spicy finish, so let’s drink up! 

We’ll be tapping into “Juggling Plums” - 5% ABV, along with 2 additional draft offerings from Breakside & Fat Head’s and brewery staff will be in attendance, for a night not to be missed! 

ADDITIONAL DRAFTS:
Breakside “Amuse” Belgian Style Session Ale, 5% ABV
Breakside “Salted Caramel” Stout, 6.7% ABV
Fat Head’s “Headhunter” IPA, 7.5% ABV
Fat Head’s “Ultra” Pilsner ?% ABV
