Crystal Lake Brewing Beach Blond Golden Lager
Had this Beach Blonde Golden Lager from the folks at Crystal Lake Brewing when we stopped into the Brat Haus in Richmond on a recent visit to Twin Lakes. Like a lot of places these days, they have a pretty extensive beer menu with a mix of national and local choices and - much to my dismay - a heavy (as it seems always these days) focus on hoppy-IPAs. This lager was a natural choice for me - something local, light and crisp.
Beer Advocate gives it a 81 which puts it below the normal range of the beers that Dr. Jeff has us try during his beer education sessions. Speaking of which...we should do one of those again now that school is getting back in season and we'll be in more on the weekends as the weather cools down. Ah...Fall is coming!
