General description

When the Pils began to dominate the world from Bavaria, the breweries in Cologne formed an alliance: the Kölsch Konvention. From now on, they agreed to brew a bright, refreshing, fullMalty- perhaps sweet, perhaps fruity – beer they would call Kölsch. To make it all a bit more special, you were only allowed to join the Konvention if you could see the Cathedral in the center of Cologne from the roof of the brewery. A local specialty was born.

Because we are a bit cocky, we also make a Kölsch beer in Amsterdam. Is this a Lager No, not really. The special yeast we use for Kölsch is an Ale yeast, but the fermentation takes place at a relatively low temperature. Another similarity with Lagerbeers is that Kölsch gets better if it isLagerat low temperature for a while. Reason enough for us to want to make a Kölsch. You want another one? We love Kölsch ourselves!

Kul! Cologne beer from Brouwerij Bierverbond Amsterdam
