AMERICAN PALE LAGER
Founded in 2009 in Airway Heights, Washington, this brewery's motto is "Brew No Evil," a statement expressing their commitment to clean, clear and tasty lagers. Whereas most American craft breweries concentrate on ales, this small operation focuses exclusively on the more difficult and time-consuming art of lager-making. This rendition is touted as a pre-Prohibition style lager, and like those made back in the day, it's an all-malt version with no added adjuncts (such as corn and rice). Its appearance lives up to its name, coupled with a frothy white head that lingers as you sip. German hops contribute to the flavor and help to balance the sweetness of the malt. The full carbonation is the final piece of the puzzle, which makes this a flavorful, satisfying and refreshing summer beer.
Price: $8 for four-pack of 16 oz
