NATIONAL LAGER DAY

I know this is a topic to which some/many of us can relate.

NATIONAL LAGER DAY

National Lager Day on December 10th raises a glass to the third most popular beverage after water and tea. 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 by 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, brewers perfected this process in cellars dug into the ground and filled with ice. Those who taste the delicious results described the lager 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.

National Lager Day offers a variety of ways to celebrate. You can start by ordering a flight to discover delicious new lagers. While you do that, invite a few friends to join you. We know that’s one of the best ways to Celebrate Every Day!

  • At home, you can explore homebrew lagers.
  • Learn about the brewing process firsthand by taking a tour of a local brewery. The brewmasters invest a lot of time in getting their lagers just right and take a lot of pride in their craft. 
  • Do some reading. We suggest the Little Book of Lager: A guide to the world’s most popular style of beer by Melissa Cole or A Brief History of Lager: 500 Years of the World’s Favourite Beer by Mark Dredge. 
  • Bake some homemade beer bread. Try this Veggie Beer Bread recipe and enjoy it with your favorite lager. 

Used in a sentence: I reached into my lager and pulled out a cold, frosty lager.

    Sentence: Since I've retired, I drink so many lagers that I look like I'm pregnant.

    Thanks for the “National” day postings, @donmedeiros, I always enjoy them - and especially today’s. Without knowing of the occasion, I celebrated it by picking up a 12 of Classic City Lager - a great every day (and those in between) beer.
