Summer Lager

STYLE DESCRIPTION:
To make a lager (from the German, meaning “to store”), we use a yeast that ferments the beer more slowly and at a lower temperature. It is then stored for several weeks, resulting in a beer that is exceptionally smooth. “Helles” translates from the German word for “light” (a quality reminiscent of European lagers), and our combination of malts, barley, and hops—specifically the German Noble Mittelfrüh hop—creates a bright, golden beer that imparts fresh grain characters and a spicy, lemony flavor.
