Beer brand Bira 91 has partnered with Japan’s Far Yeast Brewing Company to launch its first Gose style beer, Yuzu Gose Sour.

Traditionally, a Gose-style beer is a wheat beer which features low hop bitterness and refreshing crispness.

We are extremely excited to partner with Far Yeast Brewing Company, and launch the Yuzu Gose Sour, a beer that is a unique blend of Indian and Japanese flavors. This collaboration brings together Bira 91 and Far Yeast Brewery’s passion for experimenting with new beer styles and our brewer’s relentless pursuit to continue innovating and bringing diverse flavors to consumers,’ shared Deepak Sinha, VP, Marketing, Bira 91.

The ‘Yuzu Gose Sour’ has been brewed from a combination of flavors of Himalayan Pink Salt sourced from India and the peel of Yuzu, a traditional Japanese citrus fruit cultivated in Japan’s Kochi Prefecture region and is used to make Kagua – a popular Japanese ale.

Beer/Craft Beer culture is similar in Indian and Japan in a sense that, we are both uniquely innovating the craft beer culture from USA. We are both the leaders of this new world. I wish that this cross collaboration will be the first step to elevate the unique craft beer culture in the new world,” added Shiro Yamada, CEO, Far Yeast Brewery.

The beer is dropping at the Bira 91 Limited Release Taproom in Koramangala, Bangalore today, 2nd June 2022.
