Summerfest Lager

Sierra Nevada Brewing (Chico, CA)

"Since their invention in the 1840s, Pilsener-style beers have become the world’s most popular style. With a nod toward the original Czech tradition, Summerfest is brewed to feature the best of Bohemian nature. Crisp, golden, dry and incredibly drinkable, Summerfest has a delicate and complex malt flavor and spicy and floral hop character—the perfect warm weather beer." The perfect antidote to IPA overload ... a crisp, clean pilsner. Perhaps it is genetic, my fondness for these Czech-style lagers ... particularly when done so well.
