Sasquatch Brewing Company (Portland, OR)

American Aquarium Drinker (Gose)

A traditional Gose is a sour ale brewed with salt and a touch of coriander, but this is not a traditional Gose.

Skol – Juniper Infused Norwegian Ale (Specialty Style)

Skol Norwegian Ale features a traditional brewing method tracing back to the Viking Age. Juniper branches are steeped overnight in hot water. This “Juniper Tea” is infused into the mash the next morning, allowing the complex, resinous flavor and aroma to shine through. Additionally, expect notes of roasted toffee, caramel and a mildly-smoky sweetness to round out this balanced, medium body ale, plus hints of citrus and spice from Columbus, Amarillo and Simcoe hops. Enjoy this centuries old, “Ale of the Norsemen.” Skol!––Here’s To Good Health!
