42 North Brewing in East Aurora, NY has teamed up with friends Beer Tree Beer Co. for a limited fruited gose celebrating the Buffalo-based brewery’s distribution expansion into Central New York and the Greater Rochester Area. The beer, West Gose East, is a rum runner cocktail-inspired fruited sour brewed with all the fruits needed to make you think you’re on a beach in the Keys.

West Gose East will be released Saturday, April 10 (12pm) and will be available in Western New York starting next week and Central New York the following week. The 16oz 4-packs will be available at 42 North, Beer Tree Brew Co. in Port Crane, NY, Aurora Brew Works, select Wegman’s stores, independent bottle shops, local bars and wherever 42 North and Beer Tree is sold.

Pre-order for pick-up at 42 North Brewing is now available online at theoutpost42n.com.

The project resulted in a fruited gose packed with pineapple, blackberry, banana, coconut, tangerine, key lime, blood orange & cara cara orange, balanced by a touch of lactose to compliment the tartness. Soft citrus and tropical fruit notes finish off this 6.5% ABV limited rum runner cocktail-inspired release.

“We’re excited to bring our liquid east and get our product into the hands of more craft beer lovers. We always talked about finding a collab partner to help celebrate that and I’m glad we found one in our friends at Beer Tree,” says Head Brewer Matt Matuszewski. “Beer Tree normally focuses on IPAs, so we thought it was the perfect time to work on something different like ‘West Gose East together.”

East Aurora neighbor Aurora Brew Works helped broker the collaboration, bringing together two New York State breweries with an emphasis on quality and innovation to create a truly unique recipe.

Head to 42northbrewing.com to learn more and pre-order. The beer will be available through Try-It Distribution in Erie & Niagara Country, Lake Beverage is the Greater Rochester Area & Onondaga/AL George Beverages in Central New York.
