Baltic, Munich and Kulmbacher: this presentation travels through European and American lands to get a better understanding of dark lager. Learn how German, Czech and Baltic Porter styles were appropriated by American breweries before, during and after Prohibition. These styles barely resurfaced after “the great experiment” but they are alive and well today and this presentation will explain lessons learned from historic breweries and how they can be used to improve your homebrewing.
