MIAMI — When Juliana Barazza – general manager of Concrete Beach Brewery and native to Colombia – thinks of summer, she thinks of Mango Biche – a typical Colombian snack where unripe green mangos are served with salt, lime and pepper. Barazza pitched the idea of turning the sour, salty, and incredibly refreshing snack into a beer last year to Head Brewer Eric Hernandez. He loved the concept.
“I am so excited to have a little taste of home in Mango Biche Gose,” said Juliana Barazza, GM of Concrete Beach Brewery. “It’s the perfect combination of two of my favorite things – beer and mango biche – just in time for that mid-summer heat!”
The brewery will share its Mango Biche Gose with fans later this month – a gose made with lime juice, puréed green mangos from Lyons Farms Homestead, salt and Amarillo hops – just in time to pay tribute to Colombian Declaration of Independence on July 20. The release will be marked with a brewery event aptly named It’s Mango, Biches featuring a mango-eating contest with Amazonica, classic Latin American eats by local El Zambo, entertainment by Barraquilla Carnaval performers and DJ Law with the beats. Cans will be available starting at noon for $13.99 per 6-pack. Concrete Beach Brewery will donate $1 for every Concrete Beach Brewery pint sold at the brewery on July 20 from 2 p.m. – 8 p.m. to Carnaval de Barranquilla up to $800.*
