Beer Loves Company in Cologne, Germany!

0 comments

Cologne, Germany (know as Köln to it’s people) is the birthplace and home of Kölsch beer. Kölsch is warm-fermented & cold-conditioned (or lagered) and results in a brew that is straw yellow in color with prominent hoppiness. Kölsch, like Cologne itself, has been in direct competition with Altbier and neighboring Düsseldorf for many years.

As we are learning, there are 13 breweries in Cologne who produce Kölsch and they all serve it in a similar fashion: refilling your .2 L glass whenever it looks a bit low, without any prompting (most times). Take note, New York. Of course, this trip isn’t all about beer as we have been taking in the Christmas themed sights as well. Here are a few moments from our journey before we move on to Düsseldorf, home of the Altbier.
