Pastoral

18 IBU / 6.5% ABV

Availability: winter

Our Winter Seasonal lager was designed and brewed to make your winter months a little warmer, and brighter, rather than match a particular style of beer. Pastoral is hearty and rich without being sweet or chewy. This one-of-a-kind lager has a cornucopia of layered malt flavors, and a gorgeous burnt-amber color.

The perfect companion while enjoying a roaring fire, as blanket of snow sets on the world outside.

We start with hearty Pale Ale malt then we add Special Roast barley from Wisconsin, Dark Munich malt, Wheat malt for some added character. We top that off with a blend of dark, rich, caramel malts. The result is a smooth and silky lager beer, with soft toffee flavors, light bread crust, a little warming alcohol, and a clean finish…the perfect beer for sharing with family and friends, while you wait out our beautiful, Michigan winter.
