CANADA (VOP TODAY NEWS) — A couple of Canadians selling salt from the Atlantic Ocean and their friend, a brewer, have decided to partner to make a sea salt beer scheduled for commercial distribution in May.
Canadians Colin and Audrey Duggan launched a small business three years ago selling sea salt online and in specialty grocery stores in Canada. Their friend, Stefan Gagliardi, who works in one of the oldest breweries on the continent, Alexander Keith’s, was looking for a beer that would go with lobster.
“Usually we pair lobster with champagne, but it’s expensive and I wanted a cheaper alternative,” AFP said.
By tasting a lobster with a Gose, a particular beer that is mostly found in Germany and brewed with spices, salt and wheat, he decided to use Duggan’s salt for create Le Passage, a beer with marine accents.
Gose, bitter and salty, is back on the scene today, whether in North America or Jordan, where the country’s first microbrewery, Carakale Brewing Company, uses Dead Sea salt .
“The flavors you get from this salt are unique, and they make the beer unique,” said Stefan Gagliardi, adding that the drink had “lemony acidity, a dry side accentuated by salinity.”
The first beer delivery is scheduled for early May, AFP said.
