I like having a good, clean lager on tap, and this one has a refreshing quality while still being interesting.


Home Pale Lager (1915)

Home Brewing Co.’s Assistant Brew Master Alphonse Gosch gives no information as to whether this beer was lagered at low temperature. He does say the beer was racked to casks after eleven days, which suggests it was not further processed.


Gordon Strong’s Italian Pilsner

FREE

Compared to a German Pils, the late hops are the first thing to notice. The flavor and aroma hops are more prominent and the aroma can have a freshly dry-hopped character. The hops don’t need to be at the IPA level; just more noticeable than in a German Pils.


Bierkeller Columbia’s Kellerbier clone

An unfiltered Franconian lager with a bready malt character that is balanced by soft carbonation and clean Perle hops.

This beer is bolder than your typical lawnmower beer, but it is meant to reward a hard day’s work. So go cross something off your to-do list, then grab a cold one, like life was meant to be.

Gordon Strong’s Leichtbier

When I first thought about giving a recipe for this style, I was going to say, “just take your favorite Pilsner or helles recipe, but use more water” – and I wouldn’t be too far from the mark. But there is a little more to it than that.
