It's all about balance. Weighing in at 95 cals & 5 carbs per can, the Repeat Kolsch drinks like a champ. We’ve added bee pollen so you can enjoy floral and honey aromas while you keep it light.
Bee pollen is an ingredient you're more likely to see topping an açai bowl or a smoothie at a health food store than in a beer... but what is it? Bee pollen is plant pollen that’s picked up by honeybees and brought back to the hive to be packed and used as a food source for the colony. As it turns out, the characteristics and nutrition of bee pollen depend on the plant from which it was gathered.
People typically take a bee pollen supplement, or sprinkle a tablespoon over their oatmeal or acai bowl. Bee pollen is made up of carbs, fat, protein, vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants. A tablespoon of bee pollen has around 40 calories, 7g of carbs (including 4g of natural sugars), and 1g of fiber. Plus, bee pollen can have over two grams of protein per tablespoon.
As far as use in beer, we believe bee pollen imparts a gorgeous floral, honeyed aroma and a richer, more complex mouthfeel. In this instance, it helps our light Kolsch punch above its weight class.
