The Daily Drink: Hale's Kolsch

“The Daily Drink” brings you a must-try libation from our booze columnist Zach Geballe.

Yesterday was the most beautiful day we’ve had this year, and so I had to find somewhere that I could have a drink outside (or at least by a window) once I finished work. Some coworkers and I, hunting for a quiet spot, ended up at the Pike Place Bar and Grill of all places. Right below Matt’s in the Market, it’s tucked away in a corner and kind of feels like it hasn’t changed in 30 years, but my Hale’s Kolsch (a pale lager based on a style of beer from Cologne, Germany) was crisp, cold, and came in a clean glass, and the view was fantastic.

Zach Geballe does a lot of drinking. When he’s not working at The Dahlia Lounge or for his business Vine Trainings, he’s studying for the Court of Master Sommeliers Exam. His weekly column here at Seattle Weekly, The Bar Code, endeavors to inspire, educate and sometimes poke fun at all things beer, wine and spirits related.
