Krankshaft Kölsch

Brewer: Metropolitan Brewing

Style: German Kolsch

"I have to tip my hat to Metropolitan for their Krankshaft Kölsch," Hopleaf's Roper says of the crisp, clean, and "super-refreshing" Chicago-made German ale. The brewery gives a nod to old-school kolsch ales, adding a small portion of malted wheat, and also to the American scene with hops from the Pacific Northwest.
