Special Beer Brewed for New Governor
The Blind Tiger Brewery & Restaurant announces the introduction of a new beer called "Kelly's Kölsch." This one-time-only beer was brewed specifically to honor our new Governor Laura Kelly.
John Dean, our Brewmaster has been tasting this beer as it matured and has decided it is ready to drink as of today, and so we have put the beer on tap at the Blind Tiger Brewery. It will be on tap as long as the current batch lasts.
Kelly's Kölsch will be served in our family restaurant by the glass, and is available while it lasts in Growlers and Squealers to take home as well as in Blind Tiger kegs for home use.
Here is wishing our new Governor Laura Kelly a very distinguished term in office!
Description of Kelly's Kölsch
Kelly’s Kölsch 4.8% ABV, 16 IBUs
A light German style beer brewed with wheat malt. 489,337 of Laura Kelly’s Heroes turned out and voted her Governor of Kansas! We thought we would brew a beer to commemorate such an accomplishment. Kölsch is a light style of beer that originated in the city of Cologne, Germany. To create this brew we started with malt that was designed specifically for the production of Kölsch beer. The yeast is an authentic Kölsch beer strain that produces a very bright and snappy beer. This brew is golden in color with a soft, floral hop nose. Crisp and clean, the mild malt character gleams.
