There are three things guaranteed during the summer months in Miami – hotter temps, rainy afternoons, and mangos. This summer, Concrete Beach Brewery is putting those mangos to use by bringing back its coveted Mango Gose for a second year.
Inspired by the mountains of tropical fruit sold by street cart vendors, Mango Gose is a German-style wheat ale brewed with salt and coriander. Breaking from tradition, this beer also has fresh mango and lime zest for a refreshingly pleasant summer beer with a local twist.
“Last year we received great feedback about our Mango Gose, so I’m excited to bring it back for a second summer and give people the chance to purchase it in cans as well,” said Marco Reyna, head brewer for Concrete Beach. “Goses are traditionally on the sour side with a touch of salinity, so between that and the fresh fruit notes, it’s perfect for summer!”
Concrete Beach Brewery has partnered with Miami-based EcoRipe Tropicals, a leading importer and distributor of quality tropical fruits and vegetables, for the mangos. The local business donated the mangos, which were added during the whirlpool stage of the process.
The summer time brew was premiered earlier this month at the 25th International Mango Festival where the brewery hosted the Concrete Beach Brewery Beer Garden complete with lawn games and cold beer.
If you missed the Mango Festival, you still have a chance to try Mango Gose before the summer ends by visiting Concrete Beach in Wynwood. Swing by and take a 6-pack to go or stay for a while and enjoy the vibe!
