Brewed with water from our wells and 81% local ingredients
Mashed with local two row barley along with a blend of three distinct varieties of heritage corn, grown only 2 miles down the road from our farmhouse brewery. Fermented cool with our preferred lager yeast strain until bone dry. Lagered extensively until crisp and crushable.
This lager is our nod to an American tradition. We use the finest, locally grown, two row barley along with heritage corn varieties, milled in house, to create a distinctly Appalachian Lager. Where macro beer producers would add rice or corn to cheapen their lagers, we are adding beautifully grown, hard-to-find varieties to enhance our unique lagers.
Years ago, while drinking the first batch of Lake James Lite, our brewers fell in love with the beer with a subtle addition of salt and lime. So as an ode to Mexican-style lagers, we added fresh, house zested and freshly juiced limes and sea salt for an unbeatable thirst quenching beach lager perfect for the shores of Lake James.
