Did you know that in Cologne they serve you Koln beer in tall 0.2L glasses whilst in rival town Dusseldorf they serve their alt beers in 0.3L glasses?

Or that Orbit’s Koln style beer Nico is named after the sometime Velvet Underground collaborator?

Just a couple of the nuggets of fascinating info from our meet the brewer event with Robbie from Orbit Brewery. Beers tasted were the Nico Koln, Neu Altbier, Ivo Pale and the current seasonal, Duke Hefeweissen (named after David Bowie during his Thin White Duke days). All in all, tasty beers and good chat made for a top night as you can see from our photo review.
