Wanna get away? It’s always beach season at Breakside, and to prove the point, we’ve developed Luz Natural, our take on a classic pale Mexican-style lager, to be enjoyed year-round. For a long time, these fizzy yellow beers got a bad rep amongst beer snobs, while remaining ever-popular with beer drinkers worldwide. We’d like to think that our team always appreciated these beers for what they are: subtle and innocuous, easy-to-enjoy on any occasion, and difficult to make well.
After 10 years of brewing different variations at our pubs– all malt, rice and corn, only rice, only corn – we’ve brought our learned experience to bear in Luz Natural. We’ve taken a few moves out of the playbooks from our friends at big breweries to create a craft version of a delicious light lager. We use two Northwest-grown two row malt, a grip of Canadian-grown Pilsner malt, and real flaked corn to give the beer a light body and crisp finish. Like all Breakside beers, this is ingredient-driven, with a crackery malt base at the forefront with just enough support from yeast and hops to balance the beer perfectly.
Enjoy this beer all year long while exploring the Northwest, kicking it with friends, or relaxing after a day of hard work. Cheers!
