This is a short story of the quirkiness of American craft beer.
Last summer I was up at New Glarus Brewing Company and purchased some sixteen ounce bottles of Two Women Lager. A beer I was told was only going to be brewed once, had one of those “R&D” looking labels, and had a story behind it. Unfortunately I don’t remember said story but I thought it had to do with making something for a friends wedding or something else along those lines.
I really liked the beer and never thought I would see it again. I am glad I am not looking to be a psychic. Each year New Glarus runs a fan vote that gets to choose the beers they brew. It seems that Two Women Lager was liked and liked a lot. It not only made it into this years release pattern but is now part of the year round releases. Go figure.
This time around the beer was in a twelve ounce bottle with a new logo (the one on this page). It is a solid lager that is crisp and refreshing with a nice fruity aroma and taste that compliment, making the beer more complex.
The only thing that sticks in the back of my mind is that isn’t quite the same beer I had before but I can’t believe that it isn’t. (?) Enjoy!
