One dollar from every Postmark Kölsch poured will go to the Greater Vancouver Food Bank
Fe-BREW-ary launches on Thursday February 1st at Donnelly Group pubs, combining a rare and delicious craft beer and donations to a great charity. For 2018, Donnelly Group has partnered with Postmark Brewing to exclusively offer their limited-edition Postmark Kölsch, the first beer of this style that they have ever brewed. Donnelly Group will be donating $1 from every Postmark Kölsch sold to the Greater Vancouver Food Bank, on behalf of the Donnelly Fund.
As you might guess from the name, Kölsch is a German beer style which was developed in Cologne (Köln) and first brewed in the early 1900s. At one time the city of Cologne had more breweries than any other city in the world, and its brewing traditions run deep. Kölsch is made with a unique process which combines the top-fermentation of an ale and the cold-temperature conditioning of a lager.
This hybrid style, sometimes referred to as a “lagered ale” combines the clearness and clean flavour of a lager with additional hops and malty flavours when compared to a traditional lager. Postmark’s Kölsch comes in at 4.8% ABV with a mild bitterness of 20 ibu. This delicious, sessionable beer will only be found at Donnelly Group pubs.
The Food Bank of Greater Vancouver is one of Donnelly Group’s key charitable partners, through its foundation the Donnelly Fund. While Christmas brings a wave of donations to the food bank, food security is a year-round issue in the Lower Mainland, and Donnelly Group is pleased to be able to support this great organization with events beyond the holiday season.
“Fe-BREW-ary brings two of our favourite things together—BC craft beer and community,” said Donnelly Group Beverage Director Trevor Kallies. “And we’re looking forward to sharing another delicious exclusive beer in our pubs and raising more money to support one of the causes that’s near and dear to our hearts.”
