Introduction to Lagers
Historically, the U.S. beer market has been dominated by lagers. That is because they are easy to drink, pleasant in taste, and are the most suitable for any occasion – which certainly includes your summertime activities! Lagers can be quite light-bodied and refreshing, making them the perfect beer to compliment your summer fun. A few popular choices for lagers follow below:
Coors Banquet – A Great, Traditional American Choice
Coors has been in operation for nearly 150 years, producing some of America’s most loved beers, such as the beer in question – Coors Banquet. This particular brew undergoes a 30-day cold fermentation process and even includes notes of banana, affirming it as a nuanced beer that is more than suitable for summer. Though it was first enjoyed by miners in Colorado, Coors Banquet has since grown to become a favorite across the nation. Consider taking this American classic with you on your next fishing trip, picnic, etc.
