YEAST: Native House Lager Yeast
HOPS: Chinook, Nugget
MALTS: Moravian 2-Row Pale, Munich, & CO Malting's Chocolate
Colorado Native Golden Lager is brewed for those who want a locally brewed, all-Colorado beer, but don’t want the overpowering malt and hops of other locally brewed ales and lagers. It delivers more than the mainstream pilsners, yet remains perfectly balanced and drinkable. This Golden Lager delivers the full flavor of a fine import or craft beer, but with a great deal more drinkability.
Each brew begins with a slow and easy 90-minute boil. Select hops are added to build taste complexities and balance the malt sweetness. After fermentation, each brew is crash-cooled to 1° Celsius and allowed to rest (lager) for up to four weeks. This chill-lagering develops each brew into a perfectly balanced, deep golden-copper lager that is appreciated for its unmistakable crisp, clean finish.
