Bira 91 Launches Its First Gose-Style Beer

Bira 91, the world’s fastest growing premium beer brand, in collaboration with Far Yeast Brewing Company, one of Japan’s most innovative brewing companies, today, launched its first Gose style beer, Yuzu Gose Sour. Traditionally, a Gose-style beer is a wheat beer which features low hop bitterness and refreshing crispness.

The ‘Yuzu Gose Sour’ has been brewed from a combination of flavours of Himalayan Pink Salt sourced from India and the peel of Yuzu, a traditional Japanese citrus fruit cultivated in Japan’s Kochi Prefecture region and is used to make Kagua – a popular Japanese ale. The ingredients make for the perfect sour beer experience, a style popular in both countries.

Commenting on the collaboration, Deepak Sinha, VP, Marketing, Bira 91, said, “We are extremely excited to partner with Far Yeast Brewing Company, and launch the Yuzu Gose Sour, a beer that is a unique blend of Indian and Japanese flavours. This collaboration brings together Bira 91 and Far Yeast Brewery’s passion for experimenting with new beer styles and our brewers’ relentless pursuit to continue innovating and bringing diverse flavours to consumers.

We are both the leaders of this new world. I wish that this cross collaboration will be the first step to elevate the unique craft beer culture in the new world.”
