Black Forest Cake Black Lager


We’re putting the proverbial cherry on top of Oktoberfest 2020 with a traditional, ahem, German-style pastry lager!

This Schwarzbier was fermented slow and cold with five specialty grains, creating a smooth, roasty lager with notes of coffee and dark chocolate. We then took inspiration from a decidedly different German tradition – Black Forest Cake – blending in sweet cherries, crushed vanilla beans, and lactose. The resulting marriage of German lager and German dessert is every bit as rich and decadent as you’d expect.

Sure, the writers of the Reinheitsgebot may be rolling over in their graves right now. But we’d argue that this rebellious beer poses an interesting question: How can it be wrong if it tastes so right?
