Have you heard the news? If you’re looking for an excuse to indulge in a little holiday “spirit” right about now, go grab a glass! According to a Biz Journals report published on Dec. 6, a very refreshing "holiday" is right around the corner! National Lager Day is Dec. 10, 2013, and Americans are ready to celebrate!
What is Lager?
The annual “holiday” celebrates the crisp, clean and refreshing type of beer known as lager, which happens to be the most consumed type of beer in the world. In fact, American adults say lager is their favorite type of beer, according to a recent survey. Although ales are brewed with top-fermenting yeast and age quickly at warmer temperatures, lagers are light-bodied beer made by bottom fermentation that requires cooler temperatures and longer periods to mature.
In honor of the occasion, some breweries, pubs and bars will be offering special deals on the tasty beverage.
