The Green Beacon team are a well travelled bunch and what they all found incredible and exciting in their favourite cities like New York and London, was the communities’ accessibility to all sorts of wonderful restaurants, coffee shops, roasters, bars and even the odd local small craft brewer. The team were intrigued by it and saw how well these establishments functioned within these communities and decided this was a perfect formula for their ever changing and forward looking home town of Brisbane.
Green Beacon is attempting to bring a new culture to beer, so prevalent abroad but only just gaining ground in Australia, that beer can be a product of huge flavour and depth, crafted specifically to be paired with different foods and indulge the senses. As the good beer guide to Australia suggests: with beer we encourage everyone to drink widely and drink well; drink less but drink better!
Style: Kolsch ABV: 4.6%
Tasting notes from the brewer: Cross Knot Kolsch is a German style golden ale with clean, crisp flavours, restrained bitterness and a dry finish. An extended conditioning period and cool ferment yields a beer of refreshing subtlety.
