Philadelphia, PA – Red Owl Tavern Executive Chef Caitlin Mateo and Dock Street Brewery and Restaurant Vice President Marilyn Candeloro are collaborating on a series of seasonal beers that will be available at Red Owl Tavern in Old City and West Philly’s Dock Street Brewing Co.
“We wanted to make the best beer we could for the season, Candeloro said. “Caitlin thought of incorporating the prickly pear into the gose style.”
Dock Street Brewer Mark Russell oversaw the production of the beer and provided these brewing notes: pouring a deep pink with a tinged white head, the appearance of this beer is striking. A mild aroma of tart fruit leads to clear flavors of prickly pear and hints of watermelon. Light bodied and dry, the slight sweetness in this beer is balanced by a tart finish typical of a Gose style. Refreshing, drinkable, and alluring.
Dock Street is Red Owl Tavern’s Brewer of the Month and is offering the Red Owl Prickly Pear Winter Gose by Dock Street for just $5 throughout the month.
Chef Caitlin suggests pairing the duck confit or other hearty and delicious dishes from Red Owl Tavern’s just-released new menus under her direction.
“We want this to be an ongoing series of collaborative beers,” Mateo said. “Next we’ll do something towards the end of March for Spring. The Red Owl Prickly Pear Winter Gose by Dock Street will be on tap here all winter.”
