Lagerbier! We’ve long enjoyed making lagers here at Breakside. Whether it be our Pilsner, or one of the many award-winning lagers that we brew at our pubs, these beers are universally loved by our brewers, and for good reason: they are refreshing, smooth, drinkable, clean, and complex. We’re excited to see that our customers are enjoying these styles more and more each year. Yes, we do believe that craft lager is finally ready to have a moment!
For the next release in our series of rotating lagers, we head south to Texas, home to some of the best lager breweries in the world. Low Places is our homage to Shiner Bock– the unflaggingly popular and peculiar amber lager that won over the hearts of Texans. This is an idiosyncratic amber beer, low alcohol and sessionable, with a light tough of caramel and cocoa. It’s lower octane than most American amber lagers and a little hoppier than most American dark lagers. This beer doesn’t fall into any particular category or style, but seriously, don’t think too hard about this one. It’s meant to lubricate the conversation, not be the focus of it. We think you’ll find that Low Places strikes the perfect balance of satiating and refreshing, ideal for lifting your spirits through a rainy PNW winter.
