Many European Catholic monasteries cooked excellent beer in the Middle Ages. The small monastic monastery located in the town of Hess was no exception. The first brewery in it was built in the 15th century.
Initially, beer was brewed in small batches for the personal use of monks. This state of affairs persisted for centuries.
Until 1860 the monastery was not closed. His land and other property was bought by the brewer Max Kober. He is the creator of the brand Gosser. He rebuilt and expanded the brewery. Thanks to high-quality ingredients and the recipes preserved by the monks, this company boiled a great beer that quickly conquered the whole country.
The modern history of the brand dates back to 2003, when it became part of a large international holding Heineken International.
In Austria, cook many varieties of excellent foam drink. One of the main competitors of Gesser is Edelweiss beer.
