We’ve worked with the Blue Ion Outpost crew a good bit over the last year, designing labels for Sparkly Princess, Pedishaw, and Collision Stout… so actually brewing a beer together seemed like a natural progression. Even though they’re a bunch of designers and marketers, and we’re stuck in a warehouse brewing beer most of the time, we all love the outdoors, whether we’re lounging at the beach, sitting by the poolside, engaging in leisure sports, or throwing a fundraiser on a hot day, serving cold beers. We wanted to make a beer for the summer, to encourage imbibing amongst friends and colleagues, no matter how high the mercury on the thermometer rises. So what did we brew? Is the suspense killing you yet?
Wait no longer! We are proud to tell you about our joint effort, Way Out There Gose. We brewed a nice, light beer with German Pilsner and Wheat malts, sitting right around 3.3% ABV. We kettle-soured this one over a weekend, and before fermentation, added hibiscus and pink sea salt, to give this beer a color to match its funky flavor, and rounded this one out with a nice dose of Summer hops. It’s salty, crisp and tart, and it’s ready for your drinking pleasure.

About Blue Ion’s Outpost:
As a full-service marketing and branding agency, we’ve always strived to strike a balance between doing the work we love and refilling the well, which for us, happens when we’re outside. Doesn’t matter if we’re biking, hiking, surfing, swimming, fishing, boating, gardening, paddling, exploring or watching the sun disappear into the horizon, we all live for the feeling that comes when we step into that vast beauty. Outpost is our chance to put our work and all we’ve learned and continued to learn to use for a greater good: to celebrate the outdoors and inspire people to go way out there.

About Holy City Brewing:
We love brewing beer, and we do it in an open-air warehouse, so we’re no stranger to the heat of the elements. During the summertime, we strive to brew beers that are crisp and light, so the extreme temperatures don’t hinder people from drinking and having a good time. We’re no stranger to outdoor beer festivals and fundraisers, but we’ve got a staff that loves the outdoors. We’ve got cyclists, runners, skaters, disc golfers, regular old golfers, swimmers, water polo players and more that comprise our ranks, and we’re excited to team up with our friends at Blue Ion to make a beer that promotes the great outdoors.
