Beer Here: Sudwerk Rye Of The Lager

Sudwerk Brewing Rye of the Lager Beer Connoisseur


After a year of experimentation, Cali-based Sudwerk Brewing Company is rising up/back on the street with its Rye Of The Lager, a 7% ABV Imperial Pale Lager. 

"It's the first rye India Pale Lager available at stores on the West Coast that I'm aware of," said Trent Yackzan, co-owner of Sudwerk.

The use of lager yeast creates a clean palette for the Simcoe and Amarillo hops' lemon, pepper and stone fruit flavors, along with added rye spice.

The 70 IBU Rye Of The Lager will be available in 22-ounce bombers and on draft beginning in early August.
