San Diego, CA — Bay City Brewing Co. is proud to announce its newest beer, “Bay City Dark Lager”. Schwarzbier literally translates from German to mean “black beer”. The characteristics of this black lager are not overly bitter, nor does it drink necessarily heavy in body while coming in at 5.3% ABV.
Unlike porters or stouts, “Bay City Dark Lager” is a light, sessionable and a refreshing winter beer that we are proud to drink and share!
“Bay City Dark Lager” is brewed carefully using the traditional German technique of darkening beer while limiting roasted flavors associated with stouts. Essentially it is the same process baristas use to make cold brew but instead of coffee, black malt is used. Bay City Brewing Co. is hosting an event to celebrate this special release on Thursday, January 19th in their tasting room 3 pm – 10 pm. The “Bay City Dark Lager” will be available in the tasting room and for distribution on this day.
“This beer is meant for daytime winter drinking and is sessionable without compromising flavor and malt character, so you can enjoy several during the cold winter months” – Chris West, Head Brewer
