Friday Beer Blogging: Curve Ball Edition

Hey, here's a tasty good one for summer: Curve Ball Kölsch. It's made by the Pyramid Breweries out of Seattle.

A friend brought a six pack over a few weeks ago and I've purchased another since. Here's how the Pyramid folks describe Curve Ball:
Inspired by the traditional Kölsch style beers of Cologne, Germany, Curve Ball boasts a clean, crisp slightly herbal taste and a lighter body. With its sporty packaging and refreshing taste, Curve Ball is the perfect accompaniment to summer grilling and ballpark outings. Try swingin' at it on a hot summer day!

Original Gravity:
11.3
Alcohol By Volume: 4.9%
Malts: 2-Row Barley, Malted Wheat
Hops: Vanguard, Perle
Availability: March - September
Best Paired With: German Sausages and other BBQ favorites


Locally, here in Springfield, you can get Curve Ball at the new Party House Liquors. Friar Tuck may have it, but I haven't been there in a while to know for sure.

Have a great weekend! And you can't (swing and) miss with a Curve Ball.

I think I saw this beer at the Pittsburg Pirates Ballpark a month or so ago, but they had relabeled it "hanging curve ball."

Cafe Brio is carrying this as a 'summer seasonal'. I tried it and thought it was fine but I am not a Koelsch fan anyway.

Of course, the writer is totally fair.
