The master craft beer pioneers at Sierra Nevada Brewing Company have managed to create a truly unique beer that uses prickly pear cactus and a touch of grapefruit. The resulting beverage, dubbed Otra Vez, features a salty taste in the style of German 'gose' beers.

Gose beers traditionally feature salty water or added salt, and have a cloudy and pale yellow appearance with a sour and salty taste. Sierra Nevada's version isn't quite as bitter but retains a sour, tangy and salty taste. Despite the taste sounding peculiar, this salty beer is surprisingly palatable and welcomes you to indulge in your next sip.

Otra Vez is a uniquely vibrant and salty beer that combines traditional and modern brewing techniques, and makes for interesting sipping for beer connoisseurs looking to expand their horizons.
