Batch 19 Lager, Pre-Prohibition Style

Banned. Defiantly bold beer. Drinking a beer became an act of protest against those in power. Each toast was a citizen's demand to enjoy life's simple pleasures. Once banned. Defiantly bold beer. Inspired by an authentic pre-prohibition recipe. Now back. In 1919, beer was banned. Barrels were broken. Breweries went belly up. Drinking a beer became an act of protest against those in power. Each toast was a citizen's demand to enjoy life's simple pleasures. When beer became legal again 14 years later, it was never the same. That is, until a few years ago when we discovered an old beer recipe in the basement archives of the brewery dating back before prohibition. Batch 19 is inspired by the last batches of beer brewed before 1919. Inspired by an authentic pre-prohibition recipe, this bold, hoppy and surprisingly balanced lager derives its bold taste from a rare combination of hops, including Hersbrucker and Strisselspalt. Hersbrucker hops provide herbal notes and Strisselspalt hops deliver notes of black currant. We are aware of no major brewer in America who uses this combination today. From the lost archives. 5.5% alc/vol.
