Bavaria Lager was born in 19th century by brewers who experimented with long-term beer storage in cold environments. This is the reason why the word Lager was created. It comes from the German word Lagern, which means “to store”.
This beer is brewed using bottom-fermenting yeast. It would then be transported to areas where the temperature remains low. First, it would be stored in cellars and then transferred to dark caves in the mountainous Alps. This beer would then be stored in the frozen cellars of Earth on ice from lakes or mountains and allowed to “lager” for the summer.
The process of brewing and storage allowed the yeast and sediments to settle to the bottom, leaving only clear, golden liquid. This resulted in a beer that was crystal clear and had a unique taste. Even this process produced a darker beer than we are used to, partly due to the heavy waters in the region and other factors. The process was eventually refined and the golden beer that many Lager lovers enjoy today has been created. If you prefer a darker beer, such as Dunkel or Dunkles to your lager, it can still be brewed in Bavaria.
