December 10 – National Lager Beer Day

There is little doubt as to why beer is believed to be the third most popular drink behind water and tea, and while lager is typically characterized as a light, Summer beer we believe that every season deserves to be celebrated with a few of your favorite things.

Lagers are distinguished from other beers as using a cold-conditioning process.   The types of yeast used are referred to as “bottom fermenting” yeast or yeast that can develop at colder temperatures.  Before the advent of refrigeration, this process was perfected in cellars dug into the ground and filled with ice. The delicious results are described as “crisp” and “refreshing.” It is no wonder that this method caught on and produced a wide variety of brews synonymous with regional and national brands.

With so many choices from pale, amber or dark, not to mention the many craft varieties there is are endless possibilities for your enjoyment.  So grab some friends and celebrate this midwinter season with the taste of Summer.
