Toz is an everyday top fermented craft ale, a beer to drink straight from the bottle whenever we need a refreshing drink. Made from the Gjulia Craft Brewery, toz takes its name from the local dialect where it is a way of calling someone we don’t know, and the person on the scooter on the label was a real person, hence the name and the logo.
