Brewers Publications Presents Gose: Brewing a German Beer for the Modern Era
August 08, 2018
Boulder, Colo. • August 7, 2018 – As Gose becomes a breakout star in the beer world, the new release from
Gose: Brewing a Classic German Beer for the Modern Era
by Fal Allen, explores the history of this lightly sour wheat beer style, its traditional ingredients and special brewing techniques.
Popular in Germany centuries ago, Gose is experiencing a renaissance today, capturing beer fans from both the session and the sour beer categories. Allen takes readers on a journey of the innovation and experimentation that is occurring within the style, offering modernized brewing methods for this style that originated during the Middle Ages.
“Gose’s history is long, complicated, and sometimes confusing. There are twists and turns, dark patches, and dead ends. Over the more than 600 years that brewers and beer aficionados have written about Gose, much of what has been chronicled created almost as many questions as it did answers,” said Allen. “What follows is my endeavor to make sense of what I have learned about Gose…We will explore what Gose was like during its heyday, through its darkest hours of near-extinction, and plot out the most likely path it took from Goslar through Halberstadt, Leipzig, across the pond to America, and around the world.”
