McMenamins Beer (All Years) — photo 40 of 140: A pint of Eazy Brii-zy Kölsch which I sipped outside at the Courtyard Restaurant, part of the McMenamins Kennedy School property in the northeast Portland Concordia neighborhood. According to the brewer:
“Kennedy School Courtyard manager Brii loves a good Kölsch, so she was thrilled when we told her she could name the next Kölsch! We brewed up this summertime thirst quencher using only German malts, yeast and noble hops. The result is an easy-drinking ale with a nice tangy finish. Prost!” Measurements: 5.0% ABV • 24 IBUMy notes from that day read: “The color is a pretty, light, translucent yellow. As the description says, there is a bit of a tang finish. It’s fairly good ... pretty good ... tasty but not strong. There are probably other Kölsch I like better — such as Confessional Kölsch and Occidental Kölsch and Ordnance Kölsch — but this isn’t bad. I liked this one better than the Ships Ahoy Wheat that I had 90 minutes before.” August 2017. Camera used: Olympus OM-D E-M5 with Panasonic Lumix 12-35mm f/2.8 zoom lens.
