There was a thread here (URL=http://www.realbeer.com/discussions/showthread.php?s=&threadid=14972) on this very good article.

good article. . .I adore schlenkerla urbock. . . In fact, I've got one in my fridge that I think needs openned about now.

never heard of Gose. I'd like to taste that. I've used Corriander in the past, but brewing with salt is something I would never have considered.

Does anyone know of examples of this shipped to the states?

Been discussing it over at Stan's Blog too: http://appellationbeer.com/blog/

Never heard of Gose? Geez -- such beer youngsters... ;)

Next you'll tell me you've never heard of Sahti.

It appears there's about one -- http://beeradvocate.com/beer/profile/4909/10683, though it's been a favorite of home brewers (at least in south-eastern Wisc) for a long time.

I've had a Gose before and to be honest it was more interesting for historical context than anything else. Not that it was bad, quite the opposite, just not as interesting as one might suppose.

Sahti. Goose Island used to make a very nice one, did you ever sample that Steve? Not sure how truly traditional it was, but it had taste to spare.

That's what I recall too, same with Roggen.

No, never had the chance -- only a home-brewed version.

I made it to Bamberg for a day last summer during the World Cup. I'm still shaking my head in amazement at how many great breweries can be found in this small town. I'm looking forward to going back for a longer stay.
