In a market saturated with quirky craft beers and IPAs that are brewed, conceived and sourced thousands of miles from India (delicious in their own right), there’s a lot to be said for the simplicity and tradition of the humble Lager.
In their search for that ‘something different’, it seems that modern breweries have over-complicated the process of brewing a quality beverage that will appeal to the masses. Breck Lager, based in Breckenridge, Colorado, has taken this knowledge ahead of the wave and produced their 4.5% flavourful new offering to the lager taps. It’s a lighter option to many of the popular beers and IPAs already available, and perfect for Springtime/Summer gatherings where nights have a habit of extending further than intended. Would be a real smooth pick for a long lasting game night as well.
Labelled by the brewery as featuring the ‘color of sunflowers’, it certainly embodies the ease and brightness of summertime – perfect for when you need a break from the heaviness of stout and other rich beverages. The malty, sweet aroma and subtle hops character which greets your taste buds at the first sip is a definite invitation for more, and the only problem customers might find with the Breckenridge Breck Lager is that it’s almost too drinkable.
