Uncle Billy’s Brewery Introduces Knuckleballer Texas Kölsch

AUSTIN, Texas — Uncle Billy’s Brewery & Smokehouse, one of Austin’s oldest craft brewpubs, is introducing the Knuckleballer Texas Kölsch, its first new beer in a can in three years. This summer seasonal is brewed to be enjoyed during America’s Pastime and just about any time.

“Texans love a light-style, refreshing beer in the summer, and we think Kölsch is perfect to enjoy in the sun,” says Bob Leggett, managing partner of Uncle Billy’s. “We packaged our new German-style Knuckleballer Kölsch in a playful can celebrating the game of baseball. This beer is perfect for enjoying at the ballpark, after a softball game, or on your back porch.”

The Uncle Billy’s Knuckleballer Kölsch is an easy drinking pale golden beer brewed with Kölsch yeast, Pilsner and pale wheat malt, and Magnum and Hallertau Mittlefruh hops. It has lively effervescence, a fluffy white head and delicate pear and sweet apple fruit aromas. It’s a crushable afternoon beer with hints of noble hops layered with light fruit flavors of pear, peach, and sweet apple. The light bodied beer has a dry, crisp finish.

Uncle Billy’s Knuckleballer Kölsch is widely available on draft and in 16-ounce cans at minor league baseball parks such as Dell Dimond in Round Rock and Nelson W. Wolff Municipal Stadium in San Antonio, as well as hundreds of bars, restaurants, and retail stores in Texas. Uncle Billy’s Brewery is distributed by Brown Distributing Co. Inc. in Austin; Favorite Brands in Dallas, Fort Worth and Houston; GLI Distributing in San Antonio; Keg One in the Hill Country; and Tri-City Distributors in New Braunfels, TX.
