For those desiring a lighter beer that still has hand-crafted integrity, this beer is a Kölsch style ale made famous in its namesake city of Cologne, Germany. This thirst-quenching brew is spritzy, not too malty, with the pleasing aroma of imported Hallertauer hops. While fermented warm like all ales, Kölsch beer undergoes a cold aging period like a lager which results in a brew that is complex yet easy to drink.
Originally, this intensely hopped ale was brewed in the 18th century to survive the long sea journey from the cooler breweries in England, around the Cape of Africa to India where the temperatures were too warm to brew. This beer has a unique floral aroma from the generous addition of Cascade hops to the fermenter in a procedure known as dry hopping.
This brilliant red ale, brewed with caramel and pale malts is a best seller at the Carolina Brewery. Using traditional brewing methods, the ale yeast provides a touch of fruit and works in tandem with the malt to make for a very drinkable ale. Kent Golding hops lend just enough bitterness and aroma to round out the flavor.
This hearty dark ale with pleasing hints of molasses and chocolate is robust and full bodied. Fresh rolled oats complement the brew by creating a nice silky texture and a creamy, rocky head. Porter became a style of its own during the early 1700’s when it was the favorite drink of the porters in the produce markets of London, England.
