Rogerfest Cherry Wood Lager

Homebrewers Association
Homebrewers Association

If you're a smoked beer fan, you will love this one! The cherry wood brings a lot of nice flavor profiles to this beer. It's balanced nicely by adding hops that are low in alpha acids (hop bitterness is not get along with the phenolic character of smoke) and honey malt to add sweetness. This beer was named after the late owner of Briess Malt & Ingredients Company, Roger Briess. This beer is a great reason to celebrate his enthusiasm. Enjoy!
