Petit Verdot Grand Gose, Fieldwork Brewing Co.

Fieldwork might be best known for its impossibly juicy, not-hoppy Northeast IPAs, but the Berkeley-based brewery crafts a mean sour, too. The Petit Verdot Grand Gose ($7) offers complexity as well as easy drinkability. The flavor profile is largely shaped around its eponymous French grape, with slight tobacco notes and a full-bodied, jammy finish. Still, it’s a gose, which means the fruity flavors are balanced by a refreshing tartness. 1805 Capitol Avenue,
