Recent changes in our beer list highlight our movement further into lager season. Civil Lager and Vienna Lager are selling briskly. Regular-favorite Dortmunder is back. Today our hugely popular Czech Pilsner goes on. And stay tuned for the return of Carlbock (the beer that miraculously restored health to one of our regulars after a serious motorcycle accident).
Our Civil Lager is crisp, clean, and simple. This golden lager beer will appeal to craft and non-craft beer drinkers alike. It is a refreshingly crisp beer than still has some bready malt and subtle hop spice. Needless to say, this pairs well with much summer food, especially tacos on Sunday.
Vienna Lager is a lighter, drier cousin of Oktoberfest. It is an accessible copper-colored lager with a distinctive toasted malt character and a dry finish. German noble hops impart a pleasant spiciness. Don’t let Charlie and Alex drink it all … again. Stop in and get it while we have it.
Related to Pilsner and Helles, Dortmunder is a refreshing golden lager with good malt body and pleasant hop character. Fuller bodied and maltier than Pilsner, this lager features subtle floral and spice hop notes. Malt rich but refreshing, this classic German style is always a huge hit.
Czech Pilsner, a crisp and tasty golden beer, is our take on the world’s first pilsner. Ingredients sourced from the Czech Republic give this refreshing lager round malt character and subtle floral and spice hop notes. This great style is anxiously awaited each year and, now, it is back on tap, so stop in for a pint or two.
Ah, the #Carlbock. This golden colored bock beer is named for our good friend Carl. It is a helles bock, or strong golden lager. This complex yet drinkable beer is full bodied with delicate fruity notes and subtle hop spice and a dry finish. It was this hashtagged brew that introduced so many people to that thing called Twitter. A sip of this magical lager will return you to the days when Twitter was used to spread information about beer, not political propaganda.
The beer list is filling in nicely, but in a state of flux, as always. Don’t miss these stellar beers. Come down and visit us at the pub and try them all. Or just return to your favorite. See you soon @TheCivilLife.
The Civil Blog has returned. It is predominantly authored by Civil Life Barman, Dr. Patrick Hurley, who can be found tending to our bar patrons on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays. He is also responsible for tending to our draft lines, which is recognized as one of our most important tasks. Special guest writers will appear from time to time. We hope reading this blog will give you much insight about the Civil Life and most importantly help you understand a bit more about all of us that work here and the beers we put our hearts into.
