Whistler Big Sky Uncommon lager
Small batch - Limited release Back in the 1890’s, before refrigeration and modern brewing techniques, lagers were hot fermented in the warm western climate - much like an ale is today. Whistler Big sky Uncommon Lager brings back the hot fermentation tradition, creating a highly complex and unique craft lager. Full-bodied and bold in character, with a decisively hop-forward clean finish. Just like the mountain skies after a summer storm, there’s nothing quite like it.
Style originating in 18th century California, where brewers without access to refrigeration produced beers using lager yeasts and warm temperatures. These still retain some of the rounded character inherent in all lagers, but with a dose of ale fruitiness.
