Spinnakers Swan Lake Kölsch Set to Return

VICTORIA, BC – In the latest newsletter from Spinnakers Gastro Brewpub, the “New in the Brewery” section indicates that Swan Lake Kölsch Style Ale will soon be available again.

Originally released in late 2010 as a limited edition fundraising beer for Swan Lake Christmas Hill Nature Sanctuary, the 4.8% golden ale has the following description:

An early ale style, distinctive to its Cologne appellation, from the days before lager beers, appearing like a Pilsner, delicate, gently fruity, a slightly sweet malty biscuityness and a slight spice from whole leaf Czech Saaz hops. Swan Lake Kölsch celebrates the original site of William Steinberger’s Victoria Brewing Company, Western Canada’s first commercial brewery, established at Swan Lake in 1858.

Swan Lake Kölsch Style Ale will be available later this month at Spinnakers Brewpub and on-site liquor store, as well as select liquor stores in BC.
