The beer list for this weekend’s City of Goses Gose-Style Beer Fest has been announced and will feature 27 tart and salted beers. With the temperatures soaring near 90 degrees this weekend the refreshing, low alcohol, lightly salted Goses will be the perfect beverage to get through this heat.
This pun-laden festival will take place on Saturday, May 27 and Sunday, May 28. Held in North Portland at Labrewatory, this two-day festival will take place each day from 1:00 to 9:00pm conveniently located a few blocks from the Albina/Mississippi Max station.
City of Goses is an official sanctioned event for the Portland Rose Festival that is presented by local writer Brian Yaeger. The idea for this new festival was originally conceived by local beerlebrity John Lovegrove. He offered up this catchy named festival idea to Brian with a note that read, “Brace yourself…The City of Goses…That totally has a Brian Yaeger Presents feel about it.”
