Coin Toss Collaborates with Vanguard on Pink Paradise Gose

Coin Toss Brewing and Vanguard Brewing have teamed up for an end of summer collaboration called Pink Paradise. The refreshing gose-style beer will be released on draft at both breweries’ taprooms on Friday, Sept. 4, just in time for Labor Day weekend.

Pink Paradise features a combination of wheat and pilsner malts, a hint of Himalayan pink salt, notes of coriander, and pink guava juice. Tartness from a patient kettle sour is notable and balanced with subtle noble hops. With an ABV of 4.9%, it is an ideal session beer to enjoy during the final weeks of summer.

Coin Toss founder Tim Hohl and head brewer Chip Conlon teamed up with Vanguard head brewer Don Anderson and assistant brewer William Koutoulas for the collaboration. The crew took all the necessary precautions for brewing together during a pandemic, wearing face masks and using lots of hand sanitizer.

Said Hohl, “We have talked with our Vanguard friends for what seems like forever about doing a collaboration, and we are super excited that we finally managed to get together and make it happen.”

Added Anderson, “We are stoked to bring two Clackamas county breweries together to showcase what’s happening in craft beer south of Portland.”

In addition to sharing a county of record, Coin Toss and Vanguard are both family-owned by husband and wife teams; Coin Toss by Hohl and his wife Val Prothero and Vanguard by Anderson and his wife, Lin. Coin Toss Brewing is located at 14214 Fir Street in Oregon City, and Vanguard Brewing can be found at 27501 SW 95th Avenue, #945, in Wilsonville.
