DESCRIPTION

A crisp, bright Kolsch with soft malt profile and an herbal, floral finish

This German Kolsch is exactly what you’re looking for when it comes to refreshment and drinkability.  Still packed with flavor, this brew is golden with a soft white cap of head and is loaded with crisp water cracker flavor and hints of white bread.  Hop profile lends itself to a more floral expression with touches of herbal elements to bring things back down to earth. Light bodied, but still packed with flavor--this is one of our favorite beers yet. 

Surfing in Winter is a give and take of getting some of the best waves of the year but at the sacrifice of having to don a 5mm wetsuit. If you haven’t poured yourself into one of those, it’s kinda like wearing an innertube. It's not the most comfortable thing in the world--but it’s definitely worth it. 

This beer is asking for a touch of the sea, even in the dead of January.  Its light body and effervescent nature lend itself brilliantly to seared Ahi Tuna salad with a ginger-lime dressing and a touch of fresh sliced avocado. For cheese, make sure you stay with softer goat cheese, black truffle is a plus.  Desserts are wide open with this beer -- pair with shortcake and fresh fruit, or angel food cake.
