As the name implies, the Gose originates from the city of Goslar. According to the legend, Kaiser Otto III. enjoyed it very much in the year 996. But it had not been officially mentioned in a document before 1470. From the Harz Mountains the special beer traveled to the east. There, in the principality of Anhalt, it appealed to the “Alte Dessauer”. And it was he who brought it to Leipzig in the year 1738 because he did not like the local beer. Quickly the Gose found its home in the trade city and neither war nor customs barriers could stop the thirst for Gose in Leipzig.
