Ha. Germany certainly knows what it's doing. I work at a microbrewery in the States and our theme is German lagers, including a Kölsch (Cologne) and an Altbier (Düsseldorf). Great stuff, thanks Germany
That must be very exciting, working on your favourite drink. Which customers ask for your Kölsch and Alt stuff, mostly these with German origins or a more diverse group?

It's fairly popular in the States too. We call it "shandy" here.

It's actually a pretty diverse group. German beer enthusiasts love our beer, as do beer enthusiasts in general. So do people who are fairly new to craft beer. In the States, hoppy beer is what's currently very popular. But people who are new to craft beer aren't usually ready to jump right into hoppy stuff. We've found that our German lagers act as good "gateway beers." For someone looking to leave behind the Budweisers and Millers and start drinking craft beer, our stuff is one of many good starting points - smooth, with a dry finish, not very hoppy, but still full of flavor and very clean.

New to this site. Been a Wings and general hockey fan since I can remember. Moved from Michigan last year to Kentucky so places like this is where I get my hockey talk fix.

Favorite Current Red Wing player(s): Datsyuk, Lidstrom, Kronwall, Helm, Z.

I always chose the Wings, and was too cheap to buy the full game so spent months lighting up Olaf Kolzig, then a few years later when I got into hockey properly, I looked up the Wings again
