Vienna lagers originated, not surprisingly, in Austria. But, like many things, they made their way to the New World and were adapted to utilize local ingredients and satisfy local tastes. One of the most common of these is the Mexican style of Vienna lager created by a gentleman named Santiago Graf in the late 1800s. A little darker than itís European cousins, Mexican Vienna is malty with a toasty character and just a tiny hint of chocolate and coffee notes. Our version is brewed with a special kind of roasted pearled barley from Chile that makes the brew exceptionally smooth and rich.

Serving: Draft at the brewpub. It pours a dark brown with a small off white head. I had to check and make sure they didnít pour me the porter, but this is what the Vienna looks like. Slight roasted notes in the nose. Still think this is a porter. Light cracker and roasted notes with almost a hint of toasted pecans and a slight buttery sweetness. Pretty crisp finish. Okay, itís not a porter. Iím not sure what this is, but it damn sure isnít a Vienna. Is it drinkable though? That it is. And itís true to itís description.
