The name of the beer style Gose is German and is pronounced much the same way as the name Rosa, with emphasis on the “o”; and the “e” making an “Uh” sound; like so “Goes-uh.” Its origin is tied to Goslar, a town in Eastern Germany. Whether the beer was named for the town or the Gose River flowing through the town is unclear, but the town was named for the river, so it’s safe to say the beer’s name tracks back to the river also.
