Originally brewed in 1526, Gilde is a beer with deep roots in German History. The “Gilde” was a group of Germans who came together to form an association to brew and sell beer. The Broyhan Taler was the traditional currency used in Hannover at the time and the rooster became the symbol of Gilde. Today, Gilde still brews using only the ingredients allowed by the German Purity law that was enacted in 1516. We brew with barley, hops and water and we make sure we only use the finest ingredients.

History & Heritage
In 1546 the Hannover Brewers Guild was established and the Broyhan Taler (Token) became their symbol. Marked with the letters B.H.T, the token is in honor of brewer Cord Broyhan, who in the year 1526, invented a new light, top fermenting beer which sparked a beer revolution in Hannover and throughout Northern Germany. To distinguish his beer, Cord Broyhan copper embossed the rooster taler on every bottle. Today we continue to honor Broyhan by placing his symbol on every bottle and can of Gilde. Centuries of brewing experience can be found in every one of our beers.
