Gordon Biersch Releases El Sol Sonrie Lager

Just because you aren’t vacationing south of the border, doesn’t mean you can’t catch yourself saying “Más cerveza, por favor” under the sun this season!

It’s always beer o’clock at Gordon Biersch, which is why the restaurant where German precision brewing meets American craft beer is launching a refreshing, seasonal Mexican-style lager.

Beginning Monday, April 19, guests can sip on El Sol Sonrie, a crisp, clean and light-bodied lager brewed with a smidge of corn, resulting in minimal hop bitterness or flavor and finished with a touch of sweetness. (Pro tip: throw in a lime, you know you want to!)

And to top it off, enjoying spring weather on the patio with a crisp lager in hand even benefits the community! For every El Sol Sonrie sold, Gordon Biersch will donate 25 cents to a local charity. Each Gordon Biersch location will donate the proceeds to their charity of choice.

What:  Gordon Biersch is offering a limited-time lager, El Sol Sonrie, and 25 cents of each beer purchased will benefit local charities.

When: April 19-May 9.

Where: Gordon Biersch locations systemwide.

El Sol Sonrie is only available for a limited time, so be sure to celebrate warmer weather with Gordon Biersch’s new cerveza before it’s gone!
