Local Kölsch on Tap

Der Chancellor comes in a nifty growler when it's not flowing freely from our tap! (via TBC's Facebook)

A great version of Cologne, Germany’s local beer is brewing locally in South Florida, and you can find it on our tap as of this week. Der Chancellor is a Kölsch-style beer, clear and with a bright straw-yellow hue and prominent, but not extreme, hoppiness. Matt Webster, the Owner and Brewmaster of Jupiter’s Tequesta Brewing Company, is making it — and serving it, too, from an original 1915 bar from Pennsylvania at his “Tasting Room,” where he bartends next door. TBC has only been open since January 2011, but Matt has been brewing beer since his college days back in Colorado where flavorful, microbrewery beer is as plentiful as the snow in winter and rivers in summer.
Kölsch is a good drinking beer —  less bitter than the standard German pale lager — and great for the lighter parts of our menu like oysters, fresh cold salads, and even the snack section.  We are happy Matt made his way to South Florida, bolstering our emerging craft brewing community with a tight portfolio including Red Dragon Imperial Red, Terminally Ale, Gnarly Barley, Honey Badger Bock, Black IPA, Double IPA, Julio’s Weizen, Saison, and Der Chancellor — which Beer Advocate lists as an A-! Not too shabby. Before you get up to Jupiter to meet Matt behind his bar, try one of his most drinkable brews at ours and read his Q&A below. You won’t find much online besides the brewery’s Facebook! Continue reading
