DESCRIPTION

When I travel, I like to “patio” hop outdoor bar and bite spots, and my go to beer is a Kolsh.  Recently adopted by American brewers, this sudsy drink’s birthplace is 1608 in Cologne, the city on the banks of Germany’s Rhine River.  The straw-colored ale uses a top-fermenting yeast, brew-speak for yeasts that work from the surface of the liquid downward, rather than from the bottom up (like the yeast used in well-known lagers like Budweiser and Stella Artois). After fermentation, Kölsch is treated like a lager in a process called conditioning, yielding a quaffable pint, lightly hopped.  On to the next patio bar!
