About Das Bier by Heater Allen Brewing

Das Bier is the name Heater Allen Brewing has given their Kölsch-style ale. They start brewing this beer in June so it is available in late June, early July and they will try to keep it around for most of the summer. Heater Allen Brewing first brewed Das Bier in fall of 2013 and it had such a good reception they decided to make it one of their regular seasonals. In both 2014 and 2015 this beer was only available in keg, they bottled it for the first time in 2016. As usual they try to stay as close as possible to what a traditional Kölsch is supposed to taste like, although it is an interpretation of the classic style. Bright and clean, Das Bier is perfect for those hot Oregon days. It has a crisp malt character with a touch of hop bitterness.

Heater is Rick's wife Jan's maiden name, and Allen is his last name. He figures that you should always give your wife first billing. While Rick has little German heritage on his side of the family, most of Jan's family is of German descent. Their daughter Lisa who works for the brewery is a true Heater Allen.
