When I want something different, I always gravitate to a German - Style Kolsch beer. The taste is like no other, and is always crisp and refreshing. When completing my weekly beer run, it was important to me to learn the local breweries in my new home state. So I decided to go out on a limb and try French Broad Brewery located in Asheville, NC.
This continental European - Style production brewery has a German - Style Kolsch that will leave you wanting more. "Gateway", their Kolsch Style Ale is beautifully golden in color with a sweet malt finish. At 5.3% ABV, it is suggested to enjoy this beer in a flute glass at 40 - 45 Degrees F. Food Pairings are Bratwurst, Nutty Cheeses, or Light Apricot Desserts. Gateway is part of their normal beer line up so you are always guaranteed to find this beer at your local liquor store. Currently, you can find French Broad Beers in the following states...
- North Carolina
If you are in the Asheville area, or lucky enough to live in the states they distribute to. Pick up a French Broad Gateway Kolsch. Your tastebuds will thank you for it!
