WHAT: The Green Dragon Brew Crew and guest brewer Cody Hoesly release “I Did It For The Lulz” Kolsch.
WHEN: Keg tapping on Wednesday, May 6th @ 5PM
When Cody Hoesly won a chance to create a brew with the Green Dragon Brew Crew, he knew it had to be something special. “I wanted to brew something to celebrate my daughter Lola’s first birthday and I decided on a Kolsch because I like Germany and it’s a great beer for a sunny day,” says Cody. We can’t guarantee you a sunny day this Wednesday, but drop in to try this home-brewed ale with a proud tradition.

Sometimes known as the “German Pale Ale”, Kolsch originated in 874 in Cologne (Koln), Germany. Throughout the centuries it evolved into a style that’s light-colored, highly fermented, strongly hopped and bright. According to German and European Union rules, a true Kolsch can only be brewed in Cologne. But the style has become increasingly popular around the world and many American craft brewers have their own kolsch-style brews.
