Das Bier is the name we have given our Kölsch-style ale. We start brewing this beer in June so it is available in late June, early July and we will try to keep it around for most of the summer. We first brewed Das Bier in fall of 2013 and it had such a good reception we decided to make it one of our regular seasonals. In both 2014 and 2015 this beer was only available in keg, we bottled it for the first time in 2016. As usual with we try to stay as close as possible to what a traditional Kölsch is supposed to taste like, although it is our interpretation of the classic style. Bright and clean, Das Bier is perfect for those hot Oregon days. It has a crisp malt character with a touch of hop bitterness.
