The Craft & Co’s core range Draught was given a new look in 2022 just as the Melbourne brewery's new production brewery started firing but that’s not where the beer’s story starts. By then, it had already been around for some time, found fans in the brewery's Collingwood home and picked up a gold medal at the Sydney Beer & Cider Show. Go back some way further and you’ll find the beer’s inspiration sitting beside the cathedrals of Cologne and being served in tall thin glasses.
The classic Kölsch is certainly one made with sessionability in mind too, with the malt providing a soft breadiness, slight dry cracker characteristics and a gentle wave of floral aromatics. Add in a background bitterness and crisp finish and you have a beer built for the ages.
