KOLSCH STYLE LAGER (4.8%)
About the beer
Kölsch-Style Lager, a hybrid beer that walks the line between ale and lager being brewed like an ale but matured like a lager. Its origins are in Cologne (Köln) and only beers brewed within sight of the Cologne Cathedral can truly be called a Kölsch. Our co-founder and director of brewing, Ben Ott, is from both Liverpool & Cologne so it was only natural that our first beer would be this ale-lager hybrid. The top fermenting ale yeast gives the beer a fruitier taste than the bottom fermenting counterpart, making it LARGER than a lager. Our tribute to traditional Kölsch retains a refreshing crispness with a yellow straw complexion. It is lagered for three weeks and unfiltered for full flavour. The dominant hop is Lemon Drop (U.S.) bringing subtle citrus aroma and finish.

About the Brewery
40FT is an independent brewery in Dalston, Hackney, producing fresh modern, beer.
Starting in the kitchen of a Hackney house-share where three homebrewers made beer for their house parties, the venture quickly moved into two 20ft shipping containers located in a disused Dalston car park in 2015, after convincing the head brewer of their local brewery to join them.
Over the last 6 years, 40FT brewery has grown organically by adding more shipping containers like Lego and a building a talented team of 15 people.
40FT is now brewing to capacity on a 10HL brew kit, with an output of 7,000 pints a week pouring in pubs and restaurants in East London as well as 40FT's award winning taproom.
