_ The 2022 Halfway Crooks Beer 5 K's for Kölsch:
Saturday, April 16th - First wave starts at 10:30am! Our 5k fun run will consist of FIVE 1k routes. Each 1k represents one 20cl pour of Farina you will be able to enjoy directly after your run/walk in our Biergarten served in the traditional way of Cologne, Germany.
Halfway Crooks Kölsch Fest is a celebration of Kölsch taking place Saturday, April 16th 12pm-7pm and Sunday, April 17th 12pm-7pm. We will have Kölsch-style service and food pop ups in the Biergarten all weekend. The featured beer is Farina, our delicious Top Fermenting Lager!
In Cologne, Germany 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.
Saturday, April 16th at 10:30AM - Early Registration $20 until March 31st, after - $25
'5k' or (5) - 1k's. For each "1k" you earn a 20cl Farina to redeem after the race with your race bib. The bib will represent your first “coaster” for tallying your kölsch. We recommend a refreshment directly following your race, but should you want to reserve it for later you can redeem anytime during the festival hours in the biergarten! (please note you will not be able to redeem after the conclusion of the Kölsch Fest on April 17th.)
