Beer Release: Riggs Illinois Kölsch
March’s seasonal beer, Illinois Kölsch, will be released today in kegs and cans.
For 5 years now, we’ve been brewing the state’s only 100% locally grown beer.
Kölsch is a light and pale German Ale that is known for its drinkability and light fruitiness. Our use of Riggs grown, 6 Row Barley malt helps to give this low ABV beer just the right amount of body and beer flavor. It’s kind of like drinking a light beer that still tastes like beer!
Illinois Kölsch is hazier than its German counterpart. But we’re pretty sure that Honest Abe would have liked it that way.
