On March 4th, we’ll be releasing March’s Seasonal Beer: Illinois Koelsch, made from 100% Illinois ingredients.
This week, we’re releasing March’s seasonal beer: Illinois Kölsch. It will be available in kegs and cans.
Kölsch is a light and pale German Ale that is known for its extreme drinkability and slight fruitiness. Each year, we brew Illinois Kölsch with 100% Illinois grown ingredients.
For the first time, this year’s rendition of Illinois Kölsch uses a variety of Riggs grown, six row winter barley called Thoroughbred. We’re really happy with our first crop of Thoroughbred Barley because it provides this low ABV beer with just the right amount of body and grain flavor. It’s like drinking a light beer that actually tastes like beer!
