Lager is not the first style of beer that you think of when you are talking craft beer. But the lager is by far one of Australia’s most popular beer styles. The characteristics of a lager perfectly suit our climate. A crisp, dry and refreshing beer that suits our warmer, humid climate.
Our Maleny Lager is what beer tastes like when it is made from natural ingredients. All 4 ingredients; malt, hops, yeast and water, all work together in perfect harmony. No single ingredient outshines the others. “Lagern” means “to store” in German, and lagers are traditionally made with an extending period of cold conditioning to clarify the beer. We brew our beer to this tradition and cold store our beer for up to a month to ensure clarity and maintain the body of the beer. Our Maleny Lager has a little bit of extra malt sweetness and finishes nice and dry and with that gentle bitterness from the Czech Saaz Hops. Not fruity. Not hoppy. Not too dry. Not too sweet. Just a really simple, approachable lager.
So let’s all raise a glass to undoubtedly one of Australia’s most popular beers! The Lager!
