Gose, pronounced “GO-zuh” is a sour wheat beer that originated in Goslar, Germany where the Gose River flowed through town. The beer was brewed with a large portion of wheat and when pitched to ferment it would become inoculated with lactobacillus, creating the sourness. Because this is a historic beer hops were not initially used until brewers found out all the amazing preserving qualities of hops, so a spice mix or “gruit” mix would be used. Most commonly coriander was the spice of choice.
We have taken a modern approach to brewing this old
world style beer using a lactobacillus culture, and American Ale yeast to create a contemporary Gose.
