Though summer may be winding to a close, it’s not too late to slide up to the bar and savor one of the most sessionable beer styles of the season: gose. A beer variety that originated in Germany, goses are expertly fermented to achieve a slightly sour and salty taste, making for a lighter beer that still packs flavor.
Check out these six drinkable goses, which you can find on tap at craft breweries across the heartland.

Minneapolis, Minnesota | Fulton Beer
What started as a small brewing operation run out of a garage is today Fulton Beer, one of the best breweries in downtown Minneapolis. At the taproom, you can sip on a cold one just 38 feet from where it was brewed, or pick up a Sweet Child of Vine six pack to enjoy in the comfort of your rental. Whether you prefer hoppy IPAs or flavorful barleywines, there’s no shortage of bold brews to choose from at Fulton Beer.
It’d be impossible to talk about the best beer cities in the country without mentioning Minneapolis, but this Twin City is full of excitement. The Mall of America (just 15 minutes away) is an absolute must, while the city also boasts a thriving theater and arts scene. Perfect for weekend getaways or week-long vacations, Minneapolis is a superb destination to visit year-round.
When you are a smaller brewery, you don’t need as many hops. As you grow, you will need more. Seems simple enough, right? Well for Minnesota’s Fulton Brewing, as they grew, they realized the importance of such instances. A shortage of Simcoe in 2010 lead to the brew team having to revamp a up-and-coming beer, Sweet Child of Vine IPA...
City: Minneapolis, MN
The verdict: No added fruit, whatttttttt? Yes indeed, there actually were some beers in this tasting that didn’t rest on top of apricot, raspberry or passionfruit, although this one did sit in wine barrels, so it’s still halfway there. This is a golden ale that was initially fermented clean before being transferred into wine barrels for nearly two years, where it had plenty of time to build a profile of funk. Almost saison-like, it would likely have done very well being compared to some of the tart saisons in last month’s tasting: Funky and bretty, with subtle earthy, hayloft aromatics and moderate tartness. Really nice citrus/nectarines fruitiness rounds the whole thing out to make an elegant, complex beer that one taster insisted “demands a thick pork chop.” We’re fairly certain that’s a compliment.

Okay, the name is a misnomer—unlike the beers listed above, HefeWheaties doesn’t contain cereal, and it doesn’t taste like Wheaties. Instead, it’s a 4.7 percent ABV unfiltered hefeweizen that gets a slight citrus flavor from a combination of Rakau, Galaxy, Mandarina Bavaria, and Sorachi Ace hops. The name comes from Fulton Brewery’s partnership with General Mills, another Minneapolis-based company, which helped design the HefeWheaties can to look like the Breakfast of Champions. According to Fulton Director of Marketing Tucker Gerrick, the project came together when someone from Fulton and someone from General Mills were tossing around ideas at a local bar—within four months, they had a beer. The beer sold out so quickly that Fulton didn’t have enough to satisfy all their accounts. At present, there are no plans to brew HefeWheaties again, but Gerrick said Fulton is open to the idea if General Mills gives them a call…
Fulton Brewing hosted the 10th Annual Art Crank on Saturday, July 8th. 50 of the best bike-inspired posters from the past decade, designed by Twin Cities artists, hung throughout the brewery. Hundreds showed up to enjoy food truck eats, beer, and art on perfect summer day.
Art, cyclists, brewery, food trucks, artists, beer. If you live in Minnesota, it is likely that you are a fan of at least one of these things, if not many of them.
ARTCRANK, held Saturday at Fulton Brewing Company in Northeast Minneapolis, combines all of the above. The event highlights bicycle-inspired poster art and even provided free valet bike parking. This year ARTCRANK celebrated a decade of local, national, and international bike art showings with a "Greatest Hits" theme...
