After a long day, sometimes there is nothing better than a nice cold beer. Over the past few years, lager has taken on a whole new lease of life with microbreweries all around the country making their own version of this favourite brew. With our Island breweries renowned for amazing ale, two have dipped their toe into the lager arena, so in celebration of National Lager Day, we thought we’d give you the rundown of what the Isle of Wight has to offer.
First on the Island lager scene was Yates’ brewery Isle of Wight lager. A pale golden lager, this quaffable beer has been brewed using saaz hops. A refreshing lager with a crisp and light finish, it’s perfect after a long day at work and particularly nice when the weather warms and you’re sat in a pub beer garden.
The Island’s first ‘free from’ lager, this means it’s gluten free and suitable for vegans too.
An Isle of Wight born and brewed lager using local malted ‘Planet’ barley, Pilsner and Vienna malt, it’s lightly hopped with an enticing mix of new and old world hops.
If you’re after a dry, crisp and clean lager this is the one for you.
So settle back with a pint in your local pub and enjoy. Cheers!
