Kick off the 2021 Halfway Crooks Kölsch Fest with the Halfway Crooks 5 K's for Kölsch.

Saturday, March 27th - Wave starts starting at 11am: Run/Walk 1-Kilometer routes x's 5 to earn your 5-20 centiliter (6.8 US fl oz) pours of Halfway Crooks 'Farina' Kölsch .

Halfway Crooks  Kölsch  Fest:

Halfway Crooks Kölsch Festival is a celebration of Kölsch from Friday-Saturday, March 26-28. Halfway Crooks will have Kolsch-style service and food specials all weekend starting Friday. They will have a Kölsch Bier Garden Saturday and Sunday. The featured bier will be Farina.

History of  Kölsch Service:

In Cologne, Kölsch is traditionally served in a tall, thin, cylindrical 20 centiliter (6.8 US fl oz) glass called a Stange ("pole" or "rod"). The server, called a Köbes, carries eleven or twelve Stangen in a Kranz ("wreath"), a circular tray resembling a crown or wreath.  Instead of waiting for the drinker to order a refill, the Köbes immediately replace an empty Stange with a full one, marking a tick on the coaster under the Stange. If the drinker does not want another refill, he or she places the coaster on top of the empty Stange and pays for the number of beers marked on the coaster.
