Brewer: Full Sail Brewery
Style: German Dunkel Lager
Employee-owned Full Sail Brewing makes some of our favorite no nonsense American-style lagers. These are the beers that are simple and straightforward enough to drink with your dad, but refined and flavorful enough to separate themselves from the mass market industrial lager dad drinks on his own. Session Black Lager veers into schwarzbier territory with a light chocolate and roasted flavor, but the crisp, clean, and eminently drinkable body keep it in the lighter-bodied dunkel (German for "dark") lager family. You can tip these back in rapid succession and once you start, you'll really want to.
