Love City Brewing Presents Kölsch Fest
August 12 @ 12:00 pm - 6:00 pm
WHAT: Love City Brewing Company presents their first annual Kölsch Fest at their taproom at 1023 Hamilton Street in Philadelphia on Sunday, August 12th 2018 from 12-6pm. The event is pay-as-you-go and open to the public without reservations. Guests will enjoy Love City’s version of the German-style beer, served in the traditional manner – the beer keeps coming until you say “stop!”
Through the event, Love City Brewing is giving guests the opportunity to visit Germany without leaving Philadelphia. Kölsch is a light-flavored beer, like a lager or a pilsner, that’s brewed in Cologne, Germany. It’s served in a small, straight-sided glass called a stange.
At Love City’s Kölsch Fest, $5 gets you a commemorative stange glass to take home, and a coaster. During the event servers will replace empty glasses with fresh, chilled Kölsch, using hash marks on your coaster to keep track, until the coaster is placed on top of your glass.
Kevin Walter, founder and head brewer at Love City, expressed his excitement about this event, “I love Kölsch. It’s the perfect beer for summer – light and easy drinking. I love Germany’s rich beer traditions, and this is a way to share it with our neighbors in Philly.”
Love City Brewing focuses on approachable, highly drinkable beers. They see beer as “the light at the center of the table” that brings people together. Their taproom, in a warehouse that was once used to manufacture parts for the railroad, is open and inviting.
“Beer has a huge cultural significance in Germany, and I think Philadelphia’s German roots are part of what make us a great beer-drinking city. After all, the first lager made in America was brewed right here in Philly!” said Melissa Walter, co-founder of Love City.
