The Gose took its name from the city of Goslar where it was originally brewed since the beginning of the 11th century. Goslar’s brewers sought new customers and began exportation in the neighboring city of Leipzig starting in 1738. It became so popular in Leipzig with its 80 gosenschenkes, or Gose taverns, that many believed, wrongly, that it was there that it was initially conceived. The Gose was a huge success until the beginning of the Second World War when its production ceased almost definitively. It was the craft beer movement in the early 1990’s in the United States and elsewhere that resurrected this beer style.
This year, our Gose relives from its ashes like a Phoenix under a new version aged in oak barrels. We used our old Champagne du Nord barrels to do the aging. This gives it more complexity and a nice woody finish.
