Kölsch beer. A Cologne classic.

Over 3,300 pubs, clubs and restaurants in Cologne will serve you a refreshing kölsch. This top-fermented beer is traditionally served in 0.2-litre glasses, or stangen, so the waiter, known locally as the köbes, is kept very busy if you're thirsty. It's a great way to experience Cologne hospitality. Just don't ask for a pils.
