Our Brewery in the Bayerischer Bahnhof

MRMatthias Richter is our master brewer since 2003 and he creates year after year great seasonal beers: Maibock, smoke beer, porter beer. For special occasions even fire fighter beer and miner’s beer. He also produces many kinds of beer exclusively for the US market. We have a yearly production of about 2000 hl, thereof 90 percent will be consumed by our guests on the premises.

All kinds of beer available at Gasthaus & Gosebrauerei Bayerischer Bahnhof will be served unfiltered, that means there is a little yeast left from the brewing process. In our brewery we use special malts from the company Weyermann and hops from the Elbe-Saale area.


Our naturally cloudy pils beer is called “Schaffner” (conductor). It is a bottom-fermented beer and has a strong hops taste. It is our recommendation for everyone who likes typical beer. Wort: 11,8 %; Alcohol: 5,0 Vol. %


Our dark wheat beer is called “Kuppler” (operator). It is a top-fermented, refreshing beer and has a colour similar to amber. It has the typical taste of wheat beer and also a fruity note, and it is not very bitter. Wort: 12,5 %; Alcohol: 5,2 Vol. %


Our dark beer is called „Heizer“ (stoker). It is a bottom-fermented beer and has a full malt aroma. Our dark beer has a velvety texture and is rather light an sweet, which makes it an ideal beer for guests who dislike a strong, bitter beer. Wort: 12,8 %; Alcohol: 5,3 Vol. %


This original Leipzig beer specialty lends us the name for our brewery. Gose is a regional beer specialty that was brought to Saxony-Anhalt in the year 1738. Originally Gose comes from Goslar, a small town in Lower Saxony, and the river “Gose” in this town. This beer specialty has a refreshing, slightly sour taste and is ideal for quenching your thirst. Gose is brewed with the additional ingredients lactic acid, cilantro, and salt. Gose is a top-fermented beer with  4,5 Vol. % alcohol and 10,8 % wort. You can enjoy it in different variations.
