Behind the art of SEA BEE Gose

When creating art for our new line of German style sour ales owner geoff Lamb landed on SEA BEE for the name of these sea salt and coriander based GOSE. For artwork we didn’t have to look to far since we already had a mural in our beer garden of a honey bee! Raleigh based Jenny Eggleston is a mixed media artist, poet, and teacher who painted the mural for Apiopolis Beekeepers who maintain our hives, it was only fitting that we asked Eggleston to adapt the art to beer cans. Combining the iconic naval mechanic imagery of a “sea bee” with wrench, brewer’s paddle and brew in hand we had our new beer label!

Sea Bee is a new full time addition to the Big Boss line up in 12 ounce cans. This quaffable wheat ale features coriander to lend a subtle floral and citrus note to the aroma. A touch of Pink Sea salt helps build body in the low alcohol brew while a special addition of Lactobacillus creates the pleasant tart finish of this wheat ale. 4% Alv By Vol
