COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Zeitgeist is an ideosyncratic alternative black lager It seeks to recreate the spirit, attitude and autonomy of an age gone by. Its inspiration is found more than 200 years ago. Zeitgeist takes an age old classic, a forgotten masterpiece and gives it relevance and an avant-garde edge. Zeitgeist encapsulates our view of contemporary society, yet simultaneously endeavours to improve it. There is too much conformity. Not enough thought, not enough individualism, not enough alternatives. Our military line ups represent conformity to a higher authority, be it political, brand, celebrity, religion or trend. The subjects in our dystopian landscape further seek to repress their identity through uniforms and masks. Yet underneath their body shapes reveal cracks of personality and individualism. Zeitgeist is about identity, non-conformity and idiosyncrasy. It is a collective, an idea, a movement. It is about giving up ownership of itself to those who care enough to listen.

hrabren (1948) - Zagreb, CROATIA - JAN 16, 2018
UPDATED: JAN 16, 2018 On tap at Fakin Craft Bar. Dark brown, medium tan head quickly diminishing. Aroma is malty and fruity, toasty and roasty malts, berries, light cookie, maybe gingerbread or spices. Very light cardboard, doesn't interfere with the richness. Very nice toasted dark bread flavour. Smooth texture, light body, soft carbonation, light dry finish. One of the better examples of the style.
