Beaus Haters Gonna Hate
Haters Gonna Hate is an ice-concentrated Kölsch – a tribute to the first batch of Lug Tread, which ended up partially frozen due to a faulty chiller. The results were super tasty and the beer won “Best of the Fest” at the Golden Tap Awards. 8 years later we recreated this happy accident with Haters Gonna Hate, a lagered ale that’s ice-concentrated and enhanced with some mildly catty Nelson Sauvin hops. The aroma suggests funky tropical fruits such as mango or papaya. Eis Kölsch ain’t no Lug Tread – don’t hate the player, hate the game.
Golden, top-fermented style native to Kln, Germany. The style has a very narrow profile and many beers that consider themselves to be kölschbiers are not. Generally they have a moderate bitterness, but fairly prominent hop flavour (typically Spalt, Tettnang or Hallertau). They have high effervescence, medium esters, but a rounded, stylish character derived from lagering.
