Prepare to get your stange on! Nick Olson from Artisanal Imports is making the trip up north to celebrate a fantastic German beer, Sünner Kölsch with cool glassware, and a couple of special twists, including the tapping of a super limited ceremonial keg.
Sünner Kölsch is from Cologne (Köln), Germany and is a style born from the city's history. It is a delicate golden ale that is fermented at cooler temperatures like a lager giving it a clean finish with just a subtle fruit aroma from the yeast and a lightly grassy/herbal hop profile. We will be tapping a ceremonial keg of the Kölsch along with a limited release, unfiltered version called Kellerbier.
We will be serving the beer in its traditional glassware called a stange (say schtan-guh) which is a small, narrow, straight sided glass that looks like a test tube. We will be doing traditional table service with some cool serving trays. It is sure to be a great time, so bring a group of friends, enjoy some great beer, a soft pretzel, and enjoy a Hot Sünner Night!
