Beer Run: Summer Lagers

Before moving to Portland over a decade ago, my beer experience was limited to industrial macro pilsner lagers. To say I didn't like them would be an understatement. I despised them. So strong was my distaste, that I didn't even go near any lagers when I started this blog nearly three years ago.  Since then, I've come full circle. I've learned lagers expand well beyond pilsners. More importantly, I now know that a well made lager can taste amazing!

Lager is a broad category with many styles. I pulled together a group which should make for some good summer quaffing!

Have you tasted any of these? What's your favorite lager?

  1. On my short list are Fort George 1811, Upright, and Bayern Pilsner. Breakside's got a pils out now that's spectacular.

  2. Sterling all the way...NINKASI!!!!!!!

  3. Jeff, thanks for the tips! I've tasted and enjoyed the 1811. Sounds like I need to get my hands on the Breakside Pils!
