    Kolsch is a unique style in that it is fermented with ale yeast but then finished with lagering. The result is the best of both worlds: A light easy drinking pale that finishes crisp and clean.

    Kölsch is a classic beer style that was first brewed along the Rhine, in Cologne, Germany. It was originally brewed as competition to Dusseldorf's very similar Altbier. Kölsch was then seen as a milder option to the standard German pale lager. In March 1986 the brewers of Cologne renewed the convention that defines a true kölsch (“a light-colored, highly fermented, strongly hopped, bright, top-fermented Vollbier”), how it has to be served (in the famous 0.2-liter (6 oz), tall, straight kölsch-“Stangen” glass), and especially who is allowed to produce it—only the brewers of Cologne. Since 1998 kölsch may be labeled with a European Union logo, thereby joining the ranks of such illustrious regional European specialties as Bordeaux, Chianti, and Champagne. Prost!
