An unusual beer that combines many styles - sour wheat with the addition of salt and coriander, initially fermented spontaneously, acidified with the addition of lactic acid. It is a mix of Witbier, Berliner weisse, Lambik and Weizen, all in one bottle, which is why it is so special. It has its origins in Goslar, a town in Lower Saxony, Germany, that existed before Prince Mieszko I learned to walk. Gose beer has been brewed here since the beginning of the 16th century, but its popularity exploded in the 18th century, when local breweries began delivering liquor to the cities of Leipzig and Halle. Soon the demand exceeded their production capacity and Gose was also brewed in Leipzig breweries. Beer quickly became a local specialty and its popularity meant that local taverns were lining up in the waiting line. The introduction of the Reinheitsgebot and its extension to other federal states of Germany certainly did not help this specialty. In addition, the outbreak of World War II caused significant production limitations in German breweries. In 1945, Gose disappeared from the beer map of Europe for the first time. After a few years, however, it was revived by an employee of the Döllnitz brewery - Friedrich Wurzler, who passed his knowledge to Guido Pfnister's stepson, who died in 1966. He took with him the passion and knowledge of Gose brewing. Twenty years later, Lothar Goldhahn decided to bring this extraordinary drink back to beer lovers, thanks to the courage of Schultheiss Berliner-Weisse Brauerei at Schönhauser Allee in East Berlin, we can now enjoy this phenomenal beer.
Gose - a light, salty and sour wheat beer, originating from the medieval city of Goslar. It is a specific combination of German wheat beers (Weizen and Berliner Weisse) with Belgian specialties (Lambik and Witbier). You are holding in your hand the fruit of cooperation between the Wrocław Profesja brewery and the Cieszyn Castle Brewery. The taste of the whole is added by the fact that it was created with the use of original yeast obtained from Grodzisk beer and bacteria isolated from leaven.
