Kansas City Fashion Week is raising a glass and welcoming Kansas City Bier Company to our F/W '17 season!
Kansas City Bier Company hosted the KCFW committee meeting in February, where we received a behind the scenes tour of the brewery. We learned the ins and outs of the brewing process, the background of their branding, and were even able to sample a few beers. You can try Kansas City Bier Company yourself during our runway shows! Kansas City Bier Company will be providing beer at our bar each night.
Kansas City Bier Company Founder, Steve Holle, developed a love of German bier from his father and from his studies abroad as a college German student. Holle’s interest in bier corresponded to the beginning of the craft bier movement in America, which has been largely dominated by English-style ales, and more recently, also Belgian styles. It was Holle’s belief that many craft brewers unfairly dismissed German bier thus, the idea was born to create a brewery specializing in the rich flavor, drinkability, and freshness of locally brewed lagers and ales found in Germany. Holle’s hometown of Kansas City seemed like the perfect place to open the brewery that would produced authentic examples of German styles right here in the Midwest!
We are thrilled to have KC Bier Co as a sponsor this season!
