Alright ladies, hold onto your hats because Tap & Bottle (403 N. Sixth Ave., Ste. #135) and Historic Brewing Co. are releasing a beer on Friday, Sept. 11 that has your name written all over it. Well, actually, it has movie heartthrob Ryan Gosling's name written on it, sort of.

The Ryan Goseling gose is a salty, sour brew with floral and citrus notes made with Saaz Hops and coriander. However, what sets this beer apart from other goses is the dry hopping process, which utilizes Mandarina Bavaria hops to give the beer an extra bitter edge. According to Historic brewer Zack Stoll, the finished result has a "very complex flavor that's hard to describe without tasting it."

Tap & Bottle's Rebecca and Scott Safford are heading up to the brewery in Flagstaff this weekend to release the beer up there, and then Tucson will get a taste the following weekend at Tap & Bottle. According to the Saffords, they've been looking to use the beer's funny name for a while.

"We tried to make it before with Sierra Nevada and the name got turned down...Maybe because someone else was using it nationally," Rebecca says, explaining that national beer naming requirements are different than those for in-state brews.

However, it wasn't until Carole Kennelly of Historic said they should join forces that this beer become a reality.

"We've always really liked their beers...We're also friends with them so it makes it fun," she adds, "Plus, they're always open to new ideas and willing to say 'Hey, let's just try it out.'"

Now, with Kennelly, Stoll and Ryan Burac of Historic, the beer is offering what the Saffords see as a tasty, light and refreshing beer option for the last days of summer. 

So head to Tap & Bottle on September 11 at 5 p.m. to get your own sip of the lovely Ryan Goseling yourself. The price isn't set quite yet, but it should be somewhere around their typical pricing of $6 per pint. They anticipate only receiving two barrels maximum, which they, in turn, estimate will late about three days, so you'll want to get in there quick to try it.

"I think it'll go pretty fast," Rebecca warns. 

She also mentions that some of the beer could be re-released after aging in Grand Canyon Winery barrels in the near future, but I'll keep you posted on that.
