Beer Blog: Blue Mountain Brewery Kolsch 151

When you live in Beer City, it can be easy to get caught up in the beer that’s produced right here in your home town. There’s a lot of good beer to choose from, and most of it’s brewed within five miles of my home. Awesome.

But there’s a dark side to living in Beer City. Locavore’s guilt can keep me from straying too far from the ales brewed here in town. I think the bar managers in town suffer from the same guilt; most of the restaurants I frequent carry an extensive list of local beers, but not much else. Actually, it’s gotten to the point that most of the restaurants I frequent have their own damned brewery.

So I was pleasantly surprised when I saddled up to a new bar in downtown and found this puppy on the beer list — a Blue Mountain Brewery Kolsch 151. I’m a fan of Blue Mountain’s Full Nelson Pale Ale, but the Kolsch was new to me. And it didn’t disappoint. Low hopped, light, crisp, and refreshing—everything you want in a Kolsch. And it doesn’t bother me one bit that it wasn’t made in my neighborhood.
