We have recently released a new Short’s Brew called Kolsch 45 that will be available in stores soon. This thirst quencher is just what you need on a hot summer day. Kolsch beer originated in Cologne, Germany and is unique in that it is a warm fermented ale, but is aged like most traditional German lagers at a cool temperature. Though light in body and color, its prominent hoppiness and radiant yellow “straw” color set it apart. As you taste Kolsch 45, you’ll note that the sustaining head retains prominent, pleasant aromas. Light pilsen and munich malts lend grain flavors, aiding in the crisp, refreshing nature of this beer. Hop bitterness is present but complimentary with hardly any lingering resonance. This year, we brewed three batches of Kolsch 45 at our Elk Rapids production facility on April 26th, for limited keg and bottle distribution throughout the state. We are shipping out approximately 40 half barrels and 900 cases of this beer. Get it while you can!
