Gosefish
Hibiscus-Cranberry Gose

“Gosefish?” It was a pun too obvious to resist, making it the perfect name for a beer that’s just too good to resist!

Brewed with Washington-grown cranberry juice from Starvation Alley Cranberry Farms!

Harvest Series
(July-September)

Ghost Pepper Saison

Available in 22 oz bottles

When we first brewed this off-the-wall beer in the summer of 2016, we figured it would scare off all but the most adventurous heat-seeking drinking. We couldn’t have been more wrong! Fresh ghost peppers combined with funky Belgian saison make this one of the hottest beers in our taproom. Get it while it’s hot!

There’s nothing quite like the bright hop characteristics that shine through when fresh hops get involved! Each year during hop harvest in Yakima Valley, we choose a different hop to showcase in this limited-release. In 2017, we took 100lbs of fresh, whole-cone Citra hops harvested on brew day and put them into the kettle for our Fresh Hop Citra IPA.

Watchstander Stout Winter Release

Available in 22 oz bottles

WINNER: GOLD MEDAL
Gluten Free Beer, 2015 Great American Beer Festival

Our original Watchstander Stout quickly attracted a loyal fanbase and won a 2015 Great American Beer Festival® gold medal, but we weren’t satisfied stopping there. After years of research and development, we’re proud to present our updated version. Now featuring malted buckwheat, dark candi syrup, and smoother roasts of millet & rice malt, this Watchstander has a bigger body and a sweeter flavor that’s heavy on the chocolate.

Ingredients : malted millet (from Grouse Malting Co.), malted buckwheat (from Colorado Malting), malted brown rice (from Eckert Malting Co.), dark candi syrup, tapioca maltodextrin, hops, yeast

ABV: 6.5%

Experimentals

What Will We Brew Up Next?

Experimentation is at the heart of what we do at Ghostfish.  We are always on the search for new gluten-free ingredients and boundary-pushing recipe ideas, as well as innovative ways to faithfully translate classic beer styles into 100% gluten-free forms. We use our pilot system to brew small batches of new recipes, then let our taproom customers help us decide which beers deserve to graduate to full production.  These beers change every week, and usually go fast, so follow us on Facebook and Twitter to keep up with the rotation!

A partial list of past experimentals: Nut Brown, Smoked Porter, Chamomile Blonde, Imperial Stout, Kombucha Sour Mash, Citra Single-Hop Blonde, Irish Red, Colorado Crystal, Buckwheat Porter
