Spotlight: Flat12 Cucumber Kolsch

Flat 12 Cucumber Kolsch can

Flat12 Cucumber Kolsch is coming to cans this month. The Indianapolis, Indiana brewery unique spin on the German style is a summer favorite.

The brewery’s can line is about 2 years old; having already canned Upside Down Blonde, Half Cycle IPA and Hinchtown Hammerdown.

Flat12’s summer seasonal begins with lager qualities owed to pilsner malt and cold fermentation. It pours a deep gold color with smooth drinkability and a super-refreshing finish from an infusion of cucumber. It’s the perfect accompaniment to a hot summer day. You’ll stay cool as a cucumber with this Kölsch.

The big question… do cucumber and kolsch go well together? We’d like to think so. The Beer Street Journal team spent the July 4th weekend killing a six pack. The kolsch style isn’t the easiest style to brew and Flat12 has done a tasty job. The cucumber flavor just adds to the refreshment, making this beer even more summer-y.

Flat12 Cucumber Kolsch is now available in the taproom and distribution.

Pinko Russian Imperial Stout will follow in late summer, Flat Jack Pumpkin Ale in August, and a new fall seasonal in September.
