Brewdog This Is Lager 
Posted: 30 July 2015  Beer Republic 7.5 
Brewdog This Is Lager from UK Brewdog calls this a 21st century pilsner, a sharp, robust, honest brew.  By honest, I think they're referring to 100% malt.  By robust, they must means the hops.  By sharp, I can only think they mean the price. Don't expect $1 bottles at the local college bar.
Avg price/liter: USD 13.15   ABV %: 4.7  Type: Lager   
       


Brewdog, the Scottish brewery which put British craft beers on the map, decided to tackle the mundane world of lagers.  Back when craft breweries were new, a lager was mandatory.  Brewing anything more exotic as one of your initial brews wouldn't be enough to set you apart.        

But now every craft brewery south of the North Pole is brewing beers with doughnuts or biscuits or crabcakes or exotic grains. For a brewery to say, "Hey, guys, we're different" they brew a lager.  Ideally, a different type of lager.        

And that, I take it, is the objective of Brewdog with This Is Lager.  They're calling it a 21st century pilsner, a sharp, robust, honest brew.  By honest, I think they're referring to 100% malt.  No adjuncts like you'd see in a Coors or a Budweiser.  Brewdog says they're out to "reclaim one of the world's formative beer styles."        

By robust, they must means the hops. Brewdog is using ten times the hops of conventional industrial lagers and four different types.        

By sharp, I can only think they mean the price. Don't expect $1 bottles at the local college bar.

I can tell you my interest in pilsners was rechristened from drinking This Is Lager.  "Reclaimed.  Perfected. Renewed" is how Brewdog puts it.  How's that going to help me next time I'm at the 7 11 and have to pick up another bottle of Singha?
