UpCountry Brewing Releases Yammy LagAR

ASHEVILLE, N.C. — UpCountry Brewing has released a new brew, the ‘Yammy LagAR’ Festbier, in-house. The brewery tapped the keg on their seasonal lager on Wednesday.

  • Yammy LagAR
  • 6.2% ABV
  • 20 IBU

Thank god it’s not a pumpkin beer!

Sammy Hagar….. meet Yammy LagAR, our Fall seasonal lager for the month of October. Traditional festbier blends of Pilsen, Munich, and Vienna paired with over 25 lbs. of yams for an “Eruption” of fermentables and additional sweetness. “Jump” on over to our taproom and enjoy a pint!

“We couldn’t justify a pumpkin beer for our seasonal lager, and the brew team agreed” says UpCountry Brewing’s Owner, John Cochran. “This was a clever spin they were able to incorporate into the recipe. The name is just a bonus!”

UpCountry will be tapping a new beer on Wednesdays for the next several weeks. Stay tuned for what else the brewery has in its beer lineup!

UpCountry’s other beer styles include a variety of saisons, IPAs, sours, stouts, and more for Asheville to enjoy. The brewery is located at 1042 Haywood Road in West Asheville and provides a full menu featuring craft beer, cocktails, and food.
