| Beer of the Week

48o 54o

Fogo Island Myrrh-Smoked Gose 6.7% ABV

Conceived collaboratively with Fogo Island Inn, 49° 54° is inspired by the rich cultural heritage of one of Canada’s oldest settlements, Newfoundland’s Fogo Island. The recipe includes Newfoundland partridgeberries, birch bark and sea salt foraged from the island, and malt smoked with myrrh collected from Island pine, spruce and fir.

History & Style

Gose is a German beer style that originated in and around the Saxon town of Leipzig. The saltiness, which typifies the style, is attributable to the mineral-rich aquifers that supplied the water for brew houses in the region. Our Fogo Island version of the style adds in the elements of hand-smoked malt and tart Newfoundland partridgeberries for a taste of the local terroir.  49° 54°’s label art illustrates saltbox housing and fishing stages common to Fogo Island, while its artistic style is a nod to the Inn’s modern take on traditional Newfoundland outport design.

Tasting Notes

49° 54° pours hazy orange. Aromas are earthy and woody, mingled with mild fruitiness from the Newfoundland partridgeberries. Flavours are of smoky incense and brine, mildly tart berry, along with earthy, woody elements and evergreen sap. The finish is of lingering incense, with nicely balanced sweetness.
