The Lager Beer Tradition

Seminar overview

We will talk about what exactly a lager beer is and how it differs from ale.  Learn about the history of Lager beer in Europe and its eventual expansion to the New World.  Classic styles will be covered and lead us into modern interpretations.  We will taste a variety of Lager beer to explore the surprising depth and diversity of this often misunderstood category.
