Three cheers for the American craft brewers who have, over the past few years, helped revive the ultradrinkable gose (pronounced go-zah). It’s a traditional German wheat beer with just a hint of salinity, and it’s the perfect sponge for fruit additions. Sierra Nevada debuted this refreshing, year-round gose brewed with dried grapefruit peel and prickly pear cactus fruit at the start of the year. The cactus-citrus combo reads as watermelon in both aroma and flavor; after soft, early notes of melon and sweet lemon, light tartness signals a snappy close to the swallow. It’s the ideal easy-sipping brew built for warm days, and at just 4.5% ABV, there’s no reason not to crack a second bottle.

MSRP: $8.99-$9.99 per bottled six-pack; $16.99-$17.99 per canned 12-pack
Glassware: Stange or pint glass
Pair it with: Pickled watermelon, fruity ice pops, pad thai

Why a Miller Lite Was the Best Beer I’ve Ever Had

I’ve worked in craft beer for nearly five years now. I’ve had the fortune to try some truly amazing brews: Pliny the Elder, Heady Topper, Bourbon Barrel Aged Expedition Stout. Supplication? I’ve got one in my mini-fridge. The reason I’m telling you this is because I want to frame my statements here properly. I’ve had good beer, trust me. The best beer I’ve ever had, though, was a Miller Lite.
