Big Al Löwman Bräu

Formerly brewed at Big Al Brewing
Seattle, Washington USA
- Kölsch | 1 Rating | Special Release |
LÖWMAN BRÄU, a new local beer, is a tasty summer Kölsch made by West Seattle, for West Seattle. In fact, if you wanna drink it, you either gotta live here or come to West Seattle, because this is OUR beer – and we don’t wanna share it with just any Ballard. LÖWMAN BRÄU was conceived and named in 2010 by the owners of The Feedback Lounge in West Seattle’s Morgan Junction. Over the course of last year, we modified our concept, contacted master brewer Alejandro Brown over at the way cool Big Al Brewing in White Center, and invited some of our fellow bar/restaurant owners together to present a local beer that’s not only West Seattle-centric in its name (you’ve heard of our locally famous Lowman Beach, yes?), but is designed to support our totally kick ass neighborhood and community. We each do this by pledging a percentage of every pint sold during LÖWMAN BRÄU’s limited summer run to West Seattle/White Center-only charities. So yeah, another excellent reason to drink this awesome beer!
