Drake’s Blonde is our lightest style offering in the year round lineup. To make this beer, we looked to the traditional beer of Köln, Germany, the ever-refreshing, balanced, and pale Kölsch, as an inspiration. While our Blonde is more Californian than what you’d find in Köln, its light body, balanced maltiness, and floral, spicy German Noble hop profile make our Blonde both incredibly approachable and extremely refreshing. Try our Blonde on a hot summer day alongside some fresh local seafood or lighter salads.

Food Pairing: German dishes, salads, chicken dishes, grilled foods, fish, shellfish and spicy foods

Our 2011 Great American Beer Festival® Gold Medal award winning Kellerbier style Kӧlsch. Same recipe as our standard Kӧlsch, just an unfiltered version served cellar style like a German Brewer might enjoy directly from the lager tank. The experience might not be as crisp as the filtered version due to the presence of yeast and other proteins that are typically filtered out. Try them both and see for yourself!
