There are very few beers I can honestly say are my wife’s favorites. But I can safely say Schlafly Beer‘s White Lager is one, and she will be very happy to learn that it has been added to the growing list of year-round releases. White Lager joins this exclusive list featuring Pale Ale, Kölsch, Oatmeal Stout, Grapefruit IPA and Expo IPA (exclusive to St. Louis).
White Lager is unfiltered and known as Zwickelbier, a style that dates back to the Middle Ages, with a noticeably hazy, golden hue, hint of orange zest, and silky finish. With 25 IBUs and a strong malt backbone of Europils and wheat, White Lager presents the drinker with a smooth and zesty full-flavored beer that clocks in at 5.5% ABV.
What my wife would say is that White Lager has just enough fruit to keep it interesting, but that it’s a quencher of a brew – and it is a great summer beer.
“Lagers continue to come back into favor for both craft beer enthusiasts as well as novices,” explained Ambassador Brewer Stephen Hale. “We heard from so many customers the sentiment that, ‘I could drink this all year,’ and we agree. The mild citrus component paired with the robust, smooth mouthfeel makes you want to keep drinking White Lager.”
White Lager debuted in 2015 at Schlafly’s HOP in the City, the annual fall beer festival at the Tap Room location. Of the 40 styles of Schlafly Beer showcased at the event, White Lager was the first to run out, cueing the company to the beer’s potential in the wider marketplace. After its 2016 success as a seasonal release, the brewery decided to increase its run to year-round.
Schlafly, my wife thanks you.
