COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Post Meridian is a German-style Schwarzbier, a black lager native to Thuringia and East-Central Germany. Brewed in collaboration with Meridian Pint, this traditional black lager style was preserved behind the Iron Curtain in East Germany before it’s popularity in the West. Our interpretation is black with a full chocolatey and roasty flavor from imported Weyermann German malt. Hops are German Hersbrucker and Perle, but just enough to balance the malt.

Rich coffee aroma from the roasted malts with chocolate, cream, nuttiness, and a light hop character. Rich flavor for the style with plenty of roasted malt, creaminess, and light hop character. Not bad!
