The King of Beers American Lager/Pilsner Tasting takes place this Saturday at 5pm in Broad Ripple. Expect nothing but the finest of domestic brews from America’s largest macrobrewers down to some of the smallest craft breweries. American Lagers are an American tradition. Although this style has German roots (German Pilsner), American hops, corn, and 6-row barley make this style unique. You would be hard pressed to find any watering hole that does not serve at least one of these domestic, yellow, light bodied brews on tap. Although Anheuser-Busch and MillerCoors are the largest distributors of American Lager beer in the world, there are several smaller micro/craft breweries specializing in this style. Your mission, should you choose to accept it, is to submit an American Lager entry using the Request a Brew portal for our tasting on Saturday December 8th. Here’s the twist: THERE WILL BE TWO WINNERS! You heard right my friend. The entry that receives the highest score AND the entry that receives the worst score will also take home a prize! Please make sure to bring a 6 pack each, as 1 beer will go to the pot for the winners. That said, the first 15 to Request a Brew will be guaranteed a spot at the tasting. Keep track of who’s going via Facebook here. Good luck!
