While we’re huge fans of high-test beers such as Imperial Stouts, Double IPAs, Belgian Tripels, and other knock-you-on-your-ass brews, there comes a time when all you’re looking for is something refreshing with just a wee bit of alcohol to take the edge off. Sessionable is the word we’re looking for, and when we’ve gone in search of such a beer, Session IPA, Gose, Kolsch, Lager, Pilsner, and a few other beer styles is what we’ve sampled on numerous occasions.
A new American Pale Lager from Oskar Blues Brewery, Oskar’s Lager (4.2% ABV), aims to be the everyday craft beer you count on through thick and thin. With 95 calories and 2.5 carbs per 12 oz. can, this lager is an intrepid trail buddy, a frosty fridge friend and an unfailing porch pal. Oskar’s Lager is now available nationwide in 15-packs and 6-packs of 12 oz. cans.
Oskar’s Lager is the kind of beer Oskar Blues brewers always wanted to drink but couldn’t find regularly on draft in their taprooms or available in cans to take on weekend adventures. Using German lager techniques honed for the Slow Chill Lager Series and a handful of collaborations with other craft breweries, Oskar Blues brewers developed an ultra-crisp, smooth lager with depth of flavor and low ABV, allowing for day-long sessioning.
