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.

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

Unfortunately I came up empty, a limited amount of the beer has
