Hot Sünner Nights!

starts: Jul 26, 2017 - 9:00pm

Hot Sünner Nights!
Every Wednesday & Thursday (May thru October)
in the gralegarten
starts at 5pm

This summer, treat yourself to the real taste of Cologne (Köln), Germany right here in Louisville, Kentucky! Sünner, the first brewer of “Kölsch” will be served in authentic “Kölsch Kranz” serving trays along with authentic 200ml (7oz) “Kölsch Stange”glassware to replicate the Cologne experience in the US. In Cologne, Kölsch is served in what is called “bottomless glasses”. As the customer drinks his or her beer down, servers (köbes) bring a fresh one to replace it without being asked. This continues until the happy beer drinker puts a coaster over their glass or somehow catches the servers attention to stop bringing beer. As each beer is served, a mark is made on the coaster. Each mark equals a single beer and this is what is used to calculate the beer bill. Of course, a secondary count is kept in the normal way, but this charming tradition is widely practiced in Cologne and we love it!

+ $2.50 per 7oz stange
+ $3 Underberg!

*this is a weather pending event, please check facebook status in the event of likely inclement weather.
