  • Plain Top Pilsner: Czech and New World hops in a bright and tidy package.

  • Kim Hibiscus Sour Lager: Pink and puckering with hibiscus and black currants.

  • Jån Alpine White Lager: Citrusy and subtly spicy…finishing clean and dry.

  • Fuzzbox DDH IIPA: An orange juice and apricot jam hop bomb. ‘Nuff said.

Just Enough Cologne: A Collaboration Appreciation Celebration

67276234_1155968461256274_6556305252797120512_n.jpg

Our Story

A few years ago, we were excited for the opportunity to collaborate with our friends at Crystal Lake Brewing Company on a style that we all truly appreciate…Kölsch (style ale). Since then, Too Much Cologne has become our house beer. That faithful friend that’s always there when you need it. On Saturday, July 20th, we’re celebrating this friend, the friends that drink it and the friends who brew it.

To celebrate, we’re debuting our new Kölsch glasses from Rastal and having a proper (pretty close) Kölsch service in the beer garden. We’ll also have Golden Eagle Hot Dogs on-hand to make delicious bratwursts and other sausages starting at 5.


How This Works

In its home town, the Kölsch is served in smaller glassware called a Stange. Once you’ve been served your Kölsch, a mark is ticked on to your coaster and the beer is on your tab. If your friendly beertender sees your glass empty, you’re given another one and your coaster gets ticked. If you’re not interested in another beer or need a break, all you have to do is put your coaster on top of your glass. Easy enough. That’s how we’re handling things in the beer garden on Saturday. A little piece of German tradition right here in the ‘Burbs.

A quick note…we’ll keep an eye on how many marks are on your coaster. It’s for all of our safety.*


Kölsch Talk

Straight out of Köln (Cologne), Germany, the Kölsch is the liquid banner representing the pride and distinction of the community of Cologne. A well-connected collaboration of breweries respectfully protects this style of beer and holds its tradition sacred. Hence, our collaboration (as accurate as we feel it is) bears the designation of a Kölsch-Style Ale. A respectful tribute to this beautiful German creation and its amazing origins.

The style is top-fermented and then finished cold. The result is a subtly fruity and refreshing beer with a superbly clean, crisp finish. It’s perfect for strolling the beer garden, playing a yard game or relaxing in the shade.


Clear Your Calendar

You won’t want to miss this celebration of community and great friends. We’ll be open at noon. Our outdoor service starts at 3 and dinner starts around 5.
