Mike Modano’s 561 Kolsch-style beer is a clean, crisp, yet deceptively complex brew which features a delicate balance between soft malt and a subtle fruity hoppiness. Crafted to commemorate Mike’s record career goals for US-born hockey players, 561 showcases German pilsner malt, noble hops, and a meticulous fermentation regimen. The 561 experience is smooth, crisp and wonderfully refreshing—a lighter beer, without the compromise.

2015 - Beverage Tasting Institute - GOLD (93/100) "Gold color. Aromas of raisin bread toast and honeyed citrus with a supple, lively, finely carbonated, dry-yet-fruity medium body and a tingling, stimulating, medium-length arugula, light pepper, and minerals finish. A delicious, toasty, fruity kolsch with a snappy hop finish and super sessionability." - Tastings.com; 2014 - Best Little Brewfest in Texas SILVER Light Hybrid
