Kichesippi Donny’s Dort
Kich Staff Pick No. 2 was chosen by Don Harms. Don first discovered Dortmunder in 1989 while in Germany completing his brewmaster apprenticeship and has been a fan of the style ever since. Prost, Vikings, Bayern Munchenm HD.
These two styles are closely related, the former hailing from Dortmund and the latter from Bavaria. Both are slightly strong (5.0-5.6%), malt-accented pale lagers. The cookie-like or bready maltiness should be very much in evidence in a traditional example. These beers are clean and easy to drink in quantity. Some Dortmunders made in Denmark and the Netherlands are stronger.
