Long Ireland Beer Company Brews Kölsch For Plattduetsche Park


Long Ireland Beer Company, a Riverhead-based brewery operated by Dan Burke and Greg Martin, brewed a house beer for Plattduetsche Park Restaurant in Franklin Square.

The beer, Plattduetsche Kölsch, is a 5.00% ABV kölsch brewed with all German specialty grains (Weyermann‘s Floor-Malted Bohemian Pilsner Malt was used as the base) and hops. The style was decided during a meeting with Matthew Buck, manager of Plattduetsche Park Restaurant.

“We spent about four hours drinking German beers and agreed that a kölsch would fit in their beer lineup well,” says Martin. “We brewed a few 10-gallon test batches in December, kegged them, and went to the restaurant with a few invited drinkers. We unanimously decided on one version.”

Plattduetsche Park Restaurant will release Plattduetsche Kölsch on April 04 (7:30PM).
