Salty Samaritanism

Consider this the equivalent of pink walking shoes and light blue sweatbands

It's supposed to taste salty and tart
It's supposed to taste salty and tart

If you’ve been following the Lupus Foundation of Southern California’s Beer to the Rescue campaign throughout the year, you’ve probably noticed that a number of the ales produced in support of the cause have incorporated orange peel. While a flavorful ingredient lending a zesty vibrancy to a range of beer styles, orange is also the official color of the fight against lupus. Consider these beers the equivalent of pink walking shoes and light blue sweatbands.

When I initially talked to the crew at Coronado Brewing Company about crafting a beer for the campaign, I suggested orange as a primary flavor addition. They were receptive. Ditto the style of beer I suggested — Gose, a low-alcohol, tart beer flavored with salt to match the water in the Goslar region of Germany from which this style of ale hails. For those who’ve never had a Gose-style ale, they sound a bit odd but are highly drinkable and, as with food, salinity helps amplify their flavors.

The most time-consuming part of this beer’s conceptualization was deciding on a name. I’d pitched Going Orange, but it proved a swing and a miss. Fortunately, the folks at Coronado Brewing are much cleverer than I am. Art and design manager Kyle Chapman wrestled with the challenging beer before coming up with one of my favorite names of any of the beers in the campaign so far — Gose to Charity. Marvel at his moniker-making prowess and this highly quaffable beer anytime today during the second half of its two-day weekend release.
