An American brewery calling a beer Zoigl-Kölsch. Homage or affront?
It makes me feel uneasy. Zoigl is such a special thing. And Kölsch has very strong ties to a specific region.
I understand there's some sort of communal aspect to the brewery. But it still rankles.
For the record, it annoys me just as much when commercial breweries in Germany market beers called Zoigl.
Be interested in your opinions.
