Two Coast Kölsch
Take the finest very pale barley malt, add a shovel or two of wheat malt for smoothness, leave all the bittering to some of the most delicate aroma hops from Bavaria and you get a beer that dances on your tongue like Champagne, yet satisfies with the robust, intricate mouthfeel of a Pilsner.
This is Kölsch, named after the German name for the Queen of the Rhine, Cologne. Greatness doesn’t just happen overnight. Local brewers have been refining the recipe verifiably since 1396. Today it is one of only two commercially produced so-called hybrid styles, combining the rapid fermentation of ales with the subtle hop aroma and clean palate of a lager. To this day Kölsch enjoys protection in Germany and Europe and can only be brewed by a select guild of local Breweries called the Kölner Brauerbund.
Two Coast Kölsch is as close to the original cult beer as anyone can get without crossing the Atlantic. Try one (or two – it’s light) and taste for yourself why we’re so proud of our 620 year old baby!
