A Note on This Beer
The first time I visited Central State’s Indiana taproom, I was shocked to find an entire roomful of people drinking pints of pink beer.
These guys are one of Thrillist's Best Breweries in Indiana and with all the glasses full of fizzy, bright-pink brew swirling around, it almost felt like something out of The Great Gatsby.
I pushed through the crowd to the bar and asked what was going on. Some kind of weird cocktail event or something?
“Nope,” replied the bartender. “That’s the most popular beer we make!”
He slid a sample of the rose-hued brew across the bar, and from the first sip I was blown away by its nuanced cranberry tartness. So I ordered a pint. And when I finished it, I ordered another.
That’s how I became obsessed Lazer Raptor Gose. Take a sip, and you’ll understand what all the hype is about.
Made with cranberries, lime, and sea salt, it goes down like water but tastes like a swanky high-priced cocktail. The sharp berry tang and lightly salted Gose backbone make it ultra-refreshing on those hot summer days. In short, this beer is just fun to drink and oh so tasty.
Grab a bottle or two of Lazer Raptor and you can make any occasion feel like a swanky, Gatsby-esque party, even if you’re just sitting on your porch with a few friends. And if they make fun of you for drinking a pink beer, just give ‘em a wink and let ‘em try a sip.
Before you know it, you’ll all be sitting with pink pints in hand, watching a pink sunset, smiles plastered across your pink cheeks. You might not be Gatsby, but with a glass of Lazer Raptor you’ll sure feel like him.
