CORE #4: Welcome to the Family Lager!
EASY-DRINKING LAGER IS HERE TO STAY!
Down at TWØBAYS HQ, we've been constantly pestered to release a Lager – and it turns out persistence works!
After trialling a few different Lagers and Pilsners in the Taproom (Lowtide Lager, Czech Mate and Lager than Life) which all had great feedback, we settled on a crisp version of a German Pilsner that stands up in a core range we’re very proud of.
“We wanted to brew a true craft Lager,” said Founder Richard Jeffares who was diagnosed with Coeliac Disease in 2015.
“I’ve probably had more requests for a Lager release than anything else, so we’re really pleased with this easy-drinking beauty!
“Lager has certainly had its renaissance in the craft beer world of late, and we always want to make sure our supporters can access the same amazing range of beers that everyone else can.
“At 4.5% abv, this beer presents another entry point to the world of gluten free craft beer – especially for those who are not accustomed to the hop flavours and aromas of an ale style beer.”
Our Lager joins the Pale Ale, which won a gold medal at the 2020 Independent Beer Awards, XPA which won silver, and IPA which won bronze.
“Pale and Vienna Millet are delicate grains,” says Head Brewer Kristian Martin.
“That allows us to play with subtle hops – in this case Saphir and Premiant – which present clean tangerine aromas and leave the sharp, refreshing finish a Lager should.”
“It feels that this is the natural fit for a core range dominated by hoppy ales – the Lager really cuts through with a clean palate. We know that lots of consumers prefer a Lager style of beer, and we wanted to make sure we had a great one for them to explore.”
The Lager hit shelves nationally this week and is available online in 16-can cartons or as part of a multipack where you can make up their own carton from core range or specialty four-packs.
