Westport, Massachusetts USA
Style: Schwarzbier | Ratings: 58 | Special Seasonal | Alcohol: 4.7%
his beer’s looks are deceiving! It may look like a stout, but your first sip will tell you otherwise. Brewed in the tradition of a German Schwarzbier, our Black Lager may look dark, but it tastes clean, bright and smooth. And if you concentrate, you can taste the faint flavor of black currants in the finish, thanks to Brambling Cross hops. This beer has quickly become a staff favorite!
