LOS ANGELES — California’s sweetest season kicks off in April, and Angel City is letting those strawberries shine, with their limited-release Strawberry Gose. Starting this Wednesday, May 15, 6-packs of 12 oz. cans will be available from the brewery and on-tap around town at select bars and restaurants. This year’s cans will feature art by local Leah Smithson, member of Art Share LA, located around the corner from the DTLA-based brewery.
Strawberry Gose is a tart, refreshing, slightly salty ale, with a fruity aroma. In fact, the beer won a Gold Medal at last year’s California State Fair for best gose-style ale. Therefore, the brewery decided to reintroduce the beer for 2019.
The gose-style was originally dreamt by a fan as part of a contest the brewery ran – ‘What Would You Brew?’ The winner participated in a brew day with Head Brewer Layton Cutler and the Angel City team. In the years following, it became more and more popular, where the beer became a consistent specialty can release.
“Collaborating with artists really helps preserve the fabric of culture,” said artist Leah Smithson. “Angel City Brewery and Art Share LA have a rich history of collaborating with impactful artist and working hard to create opportunities for creative freedom. Having my artwork included with Strawberry Gose is bigger than just a label. It’s an honor.”
“We’re so excited to continue our can series featuring local artists brought to us through Art Share LA,” said Keith McEly, marketing and events manager. “Artists like Leah are really able to tap into the look and feel we’re going for to help bring creative beers like Strawberry Gose to life.”
