A Note on This Beer
Best Maid Sour Pickle Beer is back, and it’s a big freaking DILL.
Every time I manage to get my paws on this pickl-y Gose for Tavour, you all love it. It never sticks around more than 72 hours! I can’t say I blame you.
It’s the beer for all of us who sneak sips of juice out of the pickle jar, who order pickle backs at the bar with every shot, and who just can’t stop lovin’ that salty somethin’!
As craft fan @Stormy G. puts it: “I don’t mean to be dramatic, but this is life-changing for pickle lovers who also love beer! It’s perfect.”
To craft it, the North Texas taste masters at Martin House start with a refreshingly tart and citrusy Gose base. Then, they use locally-sourced, real dill pickle juice to infuse this mildly tangy Sour with all the briny character we love about pickles!
*Pro-tip: use Best Maid Sour Pickle Beer to make an incredible Bloody Mary or Michelada!

wow. that’s a sour pickle. unfortunately I drinkable on its own. Will mix with Bloody Mary’s going forward.
yuck! would not want another and will definitely not recommend you try it.
Very sour. Good for pickle juice lovers, but not your average pickle eater.
Yummy sour pickles
Pickle brine, not beer
Straight up pickle juice
One sip, and this hit the drain.
Unique beer, not great drinking alone will save for Bloody Mary.
Best damn beer I’ve ever had
I wish I bought more. if you like sour beers & pickle juice, this is amazing! it would be SO good paired with a bloody.
PICKLES!!!! Used it with Jameson!Reminds me of Pickle Soda.
Salty, Briney, Pickels
Good to pair with a whiskey for a pickle back
I bought this because I wanted to see how awful something could be and was shocked to find it appealing and decent. VERY pickle-y so one is plenty but I thought it would be horrible and actually enjoyed it.
Like drinking pickle juice. If you like pickles you’ll love this beer
It’s just pure pickle juice with an after taste of beer. I’m sure it’s very good as a chaser. Can be a nice substitute for pickleback shots
Very interesting experience would love to try at bratfest if its available in the summer
Tastes just like pickle juice and punches you in the face with sour and tart goodness! Definitely a must try no matter your pallet.
Weird on its own; would be better mixed as a bloody mary
this needs to be mixed into something. it was deadass like drinking pickle juice out of a pickle jar.
Love this! Even better with a little Bloody Mary mix added in.
Pickles all I can say is pickles
I love this. It has the tangy and saltiness of pickles, wrapped up with the fizz of a beer.
You asked for pickle beer and that's what you got. Probably better in marinades or beer batter than consumed by the glass.
pickle brine can’t even taste the beer. couldn’t even finish. would only get again for a gag gift
I love vinegar and can drink it and this is pickle juice in the best way. sour and smooth but not salty. I wanna try it in a Bloody Mary. obsessed.
Straight up pickle juice. Best pickle beer I’ve had. Light, refreshing and packed full of pickle juice.
Delicious if you are a pickle fan this is your beer.
Not undrinkable by any means but you have to like pickles to finish this one.
Very sour. Quite unique
Add to bloody Mary’s! Pro tip
It’s exactly what it sounds like. It’s the perfect compliment to shooting whisky instead of drinking beer
Certainly tasted like pickles. This sounds good Until you are trying to finish a can. It’s a great novalty
Great Bloody Mary side veer
I don’t quite get the lower ratings, as far as a beer that tastes like pickles go this is spot on. Nails it’s description 100%
Makes a great red beer!
It’s decent. Definitely a particular taste of pickle. But I have a different pickle beer from California that I prefer over this one.
If you like pickles and sours then this is for you.
i live pickles more than anything, but this was JUST pickle brine
It just tastes too much like pickle juice!
Honestly the best I've ever tasted. If you love pickles this is the beer for you. Awesome Bloody Mary Chaser
Simply repulsive. I’ve had some delicious pickle beers; this was warm (even right out of the fridge), salty gack.
this is wild and I dig it
Worst beer I have every had. Best example of this style i have ever had.
Well, I love pickles but I’m not a fan of pickle juice so much, so I took a gamble at buying this… Definitely not for me, but they nailed the pickle flavor so even though I can’t drink it… 5 stars lol
straight pickle juice taste
picked pickel O' my great on a hot day
As advertised. need to be a big fan of pickle brine.
I love pickles and love this beer! One of my favorite goses of all time!
I mean... it tastes exactly like a pickle. I mean precisely. Whether that’s palatable, I’m not sure. But no jokes here, it’s like pickle brine that will get you buzzed.
If you like drinking straight pickle juice this is for you. Please bring back Pink Slip.
loved and loathed this funk, huge dill and brine presence
It’s pickle beer and it really delivers! If you don’t want to drink a beer that tastes like pickles, don’t order a pickle beer.
Love pickles. This definitely delivers.
Very unusual brew. You'll love it or hate it. Folks aren't wrong that it's akin to drinking pickle brine but that works for me. I'd definitely buy more.
Straight pickle juice. Drink it while it's cold! Not a fruity/melon pickle beer like some.
so delicious and tasted just like pickle beer - not too much pickle but perfectly balanced PLZ bring this one back !!!
this was fun for a couple sips but it literally tastes like pickle brine
Never have I ever loved a beer so much. It's sour, it's briny and amazing!! I could go either way with Gose but this gets it right for me. I want to get this again!!!
Okay so if you’re looking for pickle you will definitely get it but this is less sour or gose than it is full on pickle brine. Is there even beer in this can or is it just pickling liquid?! Straight up dill. Buyers beware.
The only beer I have ever dumped out. Way too sour for me. Tasted like pure pickle juice.
If you love pickle juice you will love this, not much beer taste
Like drinking pickle juice! It was fun, i enjoyed it. Surprisingly garlicky
Straight up pickle, probably be a good pickleback shot with some cheap whiskey.
Tastes like straight pickle juice. It was great in a michelada!
not horrible just very pickley..very interesting to say the least
Pretty good beer! Dill and pickle flavor came through. Not my favorite on its own. Would love to try this is a michelada or Bloody Mary! Would have again but mixed in with something
incredible!! would compliment a burger or a hotdog perfectly, like sipping pickle juice out of the jar! an excellent sour, and a salty finish
like drinking the juice from a jar of pickles. Deeeee-LISH!
Delicious and so much better than I expected. Sour and salty. Just like a good half-sour pickle.
Very sour, I enjoyed this as a side car to a Bloody Mary. Could also see this going well with barbecue. Unique taste.
Tastes like pickle juice. Salty.
Breweries need to stop with the whole pickle "beer" thing.
great on its own and even better with clamato!
drinking pickle juice with Alcohol! so good!
If you like 12oz’s of pickle juice, this is for you.
I refuse to drink this, but girlfriend says it’s p good
Hits all the notes for a pickle beer. Pickle juice in a can with 4.7% ABV to boot!
it tastes exactly like you would expect. gave 5 stars because it hit the nail on the head
I love pickles. But, this is kinda gross. Definitely straight up pickle juice, but not even good pickle juice. Very disappointed in this one.
Party in my mouth
was not what I thought it would be maybe back down on the pickle
super good beer, but more than 2 makes me sick.. so be careful when drinking these guys.. maybe try with a bloody Mary or michelada next time
just awful. maybe within a Bloody Mary, but undrinkable alone
like drinking pickle juice. just the right amount of saltiness
5 stars pickle juice from the jar. no beer flavor and not good but great pickle juice jar flavor that I don’t enjoy.
great for pickle lovers
I did not expect this to taste like straight up pickle juice but it does. Doesn’t even resemble a beer. LOL
it’s good but a bit intense. would be great in a Bloody Mary
Tastes like pickle juice! Drink in moderation, as such it should be in a pickle jar!!!! lol Great as a pickle back for tequila!!
I love pickle juice, and this is basically pickle juice with some beer, but there's some sort of after flavor/sour that doesn't hit right for me. Half the house disagreed. We can all agree it would be good bloody mary material.
It’s wild. Almost impossible to rate.
pickle brine, excellent in a michelada
As a pickle lover, I absolutely loved this beer. very strong pickle flavor!
a super sour and great for those who like pickle juice.
Pure, unadulterated pickle flavor. It is what it says it is. Bottom line: If you love pickles you love this beer
No need to repeat what everyone else is saying. Enjoyable but likely a pallet killer so drink this last! 😂
Tastes exactly like pickle juice!
That’s pickle flavored all right.
if you like pickle and pickle juice this is the beer for you
I absolutely LOVE this beer!!! It has a strong pickle taste which is smooth and very tasty!! I will be purchasing again when available!!!
hated this one like drinking straight from a pickle jar 2 thumbs down
a literal savory sour beer. I love pickle juice but I couldn’t quite handle more than a small glass of it, my friend loved it though.
Definitely a sour pickle flavor. I love pickles, but this was just gross.
love pickles, this was too potent
It delivers on what it says it is, hence the score I’m giving it. Not really a “drink it by yourself” beer.
Clearly this is what it says it is - that pickle juice is basically all I get. Interesting, but I wouldn’t want a full pour.
literally tasted like the juice left after you ate all the pickles from the jar. Interesting beer, good if you really like pickles but can only have one at a time
Weird, but good. Actually tastes like pickles, almost like drinking carbonated pickle juice. Gonna try adding it to a Bloody Mary next
pickles. it tastes like a jar of pickle juice. I couldn’t drink it 😥
finally a sour pickle beer that tastes like a dill pickle
I loved it. Now, I am avid pickle juice lover and this is spot on. I’m warning you, if it weren’t carbonated you wouldn’t know that it isn’t actual pickle brine.
Pickle on the nose but after half the beer, I drained it.
very interesting but hard to drink more than one. I’d use it as a base for a Bloody Mary or as a chaser after a shot of whiskey
wife and her friends loved it.
Really surprising taste. Really good with tomato juice or bloody mary mix. I didnt think it was too sour, good pickle flavor
Nope. Love pickles and sours but this is just straight up pickle juice. So salty I was dehydrated for a whole day after drinking it.
very unique beer
pretty nasty actually
I couldn’t stomach it after a few sips. not good alone. lol
sour, definitely. Was a mouthful of pickled brine. The most kosher of dills. most probably a favorite of pickle fans but best with a burger for a regular pickle fans.
epic. need more now
disgustingly accurate.. it tastes exactly as advertised
I mean, it's pickle juice. Luckily, my wife likes it because I couldn't handle more than 2 sips.
I didn’t think I would like this beer, but it’s pretty decent. it taste like it should be part of a marinade for something like chicken, but then it’s also that taste of the pickle that’s refreshing. I plan to try to make a Bloody Mary with the other can to see how that goes.
Loved this one! Bought more as soon as I saw it again. You better like pickle juice though.
Taste just like pickles!! loved everything about it
it’s exactly what it says it is!!
I like pickles. a pickle beer is a bad idea
it’s good for a pickle beer, needs to mixed with something else
legit tastes like pickle juice. I don’t know how they did it but if you are a pickle fan you need to try this
can't drink a whole can. but I love picked juice so this one i love.
tastes like your drinking right out of a pickle jar don’t get if you aren’t an extreme pickle fan
Tastes just like carbonated pickle juice
best pickle beer I’ve ever had
maybe just what I expected, but not sure I need it
