WORLD CUP – GRAB A GAFFEL KÖLSCH WITH DAD
It’s that time when the world’s soccer fans get ramped up for football, a.k.a soccer in North America, fever. Taking place in Russia, fans will be glued to their barstool, favourite chair, or simply standing. Watching their favourite teams compete on the pitch, whether on small screens, jumbo-trans or in the stadium, fans will jump for joy with every goal scored, or groan on every missed goal. What’s soccer/football without the favourite beverage of the assembled multitudes? Beer will flow in copious quantities! And with Father’s Day coming up this weekend, what can be a better bonding experience than soccer/football boys and brews. Since Germany is always a major contender, doesn’t it make sense to enjoy a German beer while watching your favourite match? Kölsch beers, by definition and by adherence to the Kölsch Konvention of 1986, must be brewed within the city limits of Cologne. Delicately bitter, with a slight hoppy taste, the aromas of light malt and grassy hops combine to give us a further taste of light fruit and citrus flavours with a refreshing bitterness and clean finish. Enjoy with salty snacks such as salsa and chips. The 500 ml can chills quickly and there’s never fear of broken glass. GAFFEL KÖLSCH 500 ml LCBO#430769, $2.80.
