"Featuring one of our favorite regular beers at the brewery, for Gose Fest, we will be tapping a Cilantro & Lime, Blueberry, and Dill Pickle (a perfect pairing for the Hamburger Wagon!) variant to serve in flights along with the traditional Great Miami Gose. Each flight you order gives you one vote in determining which variant we will then make into a full batch!" according to the event Facebook page.

Before you go(se) to the Gose Fest, here’s a quick lesson on gose. According to Food & Wine magazine: “Similar in many ways to a Berliner Weisse, Gose is another lightly soured style that is most distinct for being brewed with salt. For those able to take this unique mix of flavors, gose is an easy drinking warm weather beer that some brewers have taken to accentuating with fruit.”

The Starlight City Market was started by the brewery in Miamisburg last summer. Unlike the majority of local vendor gatherings and markets that are held earlier in the daytime, The Starlight City Market is open from 5 p.m. to 9 p.m. every second Friday of the month — selling beer, of course.

One of Miamisburg’s favorite institutions that is the Hamburger Wagon will be serving mouthwatering grub beginning at 5 p.m. There will be Live music from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. by Age Nowhere’s Paul Monnin and from 8:30 p.m. to 10:30 p.m. by Rachel Litteral Music.

Owner of Star City Brewing, Justin Kohnen, said the market is just as much about supporting great local and independent businesses as it is about getting one-of-a-kind gifts or goods.

“You can’t drink a beer, listen to local music, and eat something fresh and delicious while shopping at most places,” Kohnen said in a news release. “We wanted the Starlight City Market to be an event. Something unique to experience every month, right here in Miamisburg.”
