  • Kamil's Kölsch

    Kamil's Kölsch

    Kölsch - 5.5 Gallons - All Grain - ABV 4.9% - IBU 20 - SRM 2

    People often ask us what we the 'KJ' stands for. The original name of the business was Kamil Juices, we re-branded in 2015 to better reflect what we do here. People often thought we milked camels! KJ also refers to the original owners: Kamil & Jerry. Kamil is a big fan of beer, so whenever he visits Adrian's or Connor's house we are sure to pour him a pint of our latest homebrew. 

    He prefers European style beers of American ones, but he will resolutely try anything we give him. He'll complain if it's too hoppy, too bitter, or too fruity. Somehow, the glass always ends up empty. Recently, we had something different from our standard hoppy North American fare - a clean, European style Kölsch. Nary a complaint was heard, now we want everyone to try it!

    Kamil's Kölsch is a classic example of the German Kölsch style beer. It is very reminiscent of a lager. It features a clean, crisp easy drinking taste with some of the classic spiciness of the German hops. This is an exceptionally refreshing beer that is perfect for craft enthusiasts all the way to the 'Bud Light' crowd. What is especially fun about this beer, is that we used Guelph's own Escarpment Labs liquid yeast for this batch. We found their Kölsch strain to be the perfect fit for what we were looking for. 

    Cheers to Kamil!
