Ides 39: Radicle Gose

Gose 4.4%

The radicle is the first part of a seedling to emerge from the seed. And so our Radicle Gose brings together an emerging artist and an emerging brewer, collaborating in celebration of the 57th annual Toronto Outdoor Art Fair. Started in 1961 by Murray and Maravelle Koffler, the TOAF has helped launch numerous careers. Notable artists such as Ken Danby, David Blackwood, Joanne Tod, Jennifer Stead and Harlan House exhibited here during early stages of their careers and, last year, Kima Lenaghan did the same, winning the Best of Student award.

Kima’s contribution, The Brewer and the Bloom, “equates brewery to alchemy, depicting the brewer’s pursuit of an alchemical magnum opus: the indescribable magic flavour of fresh beer, known as the bloom.”

We hope you’ll agree that this Radicle Gose, a tart, refreshing, slightly salty brew, is a work of art in its own right, and we thank our own artist, Tomas Madsen, for this thoughtful and tasty composition.
