Beer Description

Traditional Spanish cider, produced during the fall harvest and aged in massive chestnut barrels for months before packaging.

Jose Angel Goñi has been running the cider house since 1979 when his father passed on the business to him. His great grandfather opened Gurutzeta at the end of the 19th century. Gurutzeta is a traditional style Sagardotegi, where the production of the cider is conducted during the apple harvest in the fall (late September-early November), and the new vintage is released during the Txotx season [pronounced ‘coach’] from late January through early May. During the Txotx people flock to the Sagardotegi to drink fresh ciders directly from the massive chestnut barrels, and eat traditional Basque dishes. The cider is ‘served’ to customers via a small hole in the barrel face, which sends out a long thin stream of cider. Patrons stand about 5 feet away from the barrel to catch the cider stream in their glass.
