New Glarus Two Women Lager

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!

I am always on the lookout for another good beer from New Glarus Brewing Company as they are one of my favorite American craft beer breweries. On a recent visit to the brewery and Wisconsin, I picked up a bottle of Two Women Lager with some apprehension, as I am more of an ale guy.

The review of Two Women (that sounds a little strange) marked the 30th different beer I have had from New Glarus, quite an accomplishment since I have only been keeping records for the past 14 months.

The beer poured straw in color and crystal clear. Topped with frothy, white foam that had good retention, while the lacing was thick, sheeting, and all over. Aroma had lager yeast, lemon, herbal, and a touch of grain. The taste was similar: lager yeast, grain, and lemon where the main attractions. The body was light with enough carbonation to give a crisp and refreshing finish.

Why o’ why do I everh have any apprehensions when it comes to beer from New Glarus? I just need to taste, savor, and shutup. Enjoy!
